Microsoft earlier announced the availability of their new and improved Internet Explorer 8. Microsoft promised a much faster, easy to use and more secure browser for your comfort. They offer security features in direct response to peopleâ€™s increasing concerns about online safety. Recent studies have shown that over 90% of adults in the U.S. are concerned about online threats in the current economic climate, and 78 percent are more likely to choose a Web browser with built-in security than they were two years ago.
â€œCustomers have made clear what they want in a Web browser â€” safety, speed and greater ease of use,â€ said Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft. â€œWith Internet Explorer 8, we are delivering a browser that gets people to the information they need, fast, and provides protection that no other browser can match.â€
Internet Explorer 8 will be available in 25 different languages including Arabic, Chinese , Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese , Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.
In addition to security and protection improvements, Microsoft also claims that it will be one of the most fastest browsers and it also helps people save time while using the Web with easy-to-use new features, including the following:
Accelerators. Accelerators make it faster and easier to perform common tasks online by making Web-based services such as ESPN.com, Live Search and Sina available for use directly from the page people are viewing. Users can simply right-click a word or phrase and instantly map, e-mail, or share it.
