Microsoft Improves Internet Explorer

[Media Source*]

Microsoft has finally made tabs available for Internet Explorer 6 through its MSN toolbar. The long-awaited browsing feature will simplify the experience of browsing the Web via Internet Explorer. In fact, tab browsing has already proved popular in IE competitors such as Opera, Safari and Firefox, which introduced the feature long ago.

The upgrade will allow users to open multiple web pages within a single window. Each page will be selectable by a small tab at the top of the window, making switching between web pages easier.

It seems that Microsoft is up to it's old tricks of imitation instead of innovation, something Google, Yahoo and even AOL are known for throughout the internet world. Although launching this feature will help bring back IE's popularity as a browser (although having about 90% market share would be considered popular), it will be the security issues along with blocking those annoying pop ups (note: subscription required, use Bug Me Not) that will push it over the edge and into favor with web surfers everywhere.

Bowing to popular demand, Microsoft has also created a corporate version of the toolbar. The business version will cater to large-scale IT environments, enable administrators to deploy the toolbar across multiple machines at one time, connect to an intranet or internal drive, add in different sorts of file sorting or searching, and hide or turn off MSN services to keep employees away from potential distractions.

Although these new features will probably not completely solidify the market for Microsoft, they will however make internet explorer the "talk of the town" around blogs and media, as one can see here. The tool bar can be downloaded at MSN Tool Bar website, and although it looks like a copy cat of Firefox, it may yet prove itself to be more useful than it's "Netscape friend." Only time will tell.
