This article could be expanded a great deal. I'd like to know about the history of IE, and its place in the history of the web browser in general.
- What about the fight with Netscape Navigator?
- How popular is it, and how would we measure its popularity if they simply give it away with each copy of Windows?
- If you don't buy a Mac, you get IE preinstalled. Most users don't even know how to download and install new software, so staying with what it came with doesn't mean much.
- What are its security problems, in more detail? Why hasn't Microsoft addressed these? Are there solutions or alternatives?
