Windows Internet Explorer Version 8 is designed to be faster and more convenient. Some of the features that make it faster are accelerators, enhanced navigation, increased performance, instant search and web slices. For example with web slices it allows you to keep up with frequently updated sites directly from the new favorites bar.
It is also safe and reliable. With tab isolation when a website or add-on causes a tab to crash in Internet Explorer 8 only that tab will be affected. If one or more of the tabs are closed or crash your tabs are automatically reloaded and you are returned to the site you were on before the crash.
You can now visualize your search with pictures. As you type in a search bar an image and text suggestions will appear. And with InPrivate Browsing makes it possible for only certain peopleto see what is searched on the computer which makes it easier to shop for family members without them seeing it on the computer.
