USE AND CONFIGURE INTERNET EXPLORER 9 SECURITY FEATURES
comes in six flavors (perhaps more, if versions without Internet Explorer are created for the
European market as with Vista):
• Windows 7 Starter (available only pre-installed on netbook class PCs)
• Windows 7 Home Basic
• Windows 7 Home Premium
• Windows 7 Professional
• Windows 7 Enterprise
• Windows 7 Ultimate Improved Web Browsing with IE 8
Internet browsing remains the most widely used application on the PC desktop. As such, it
behooves Microsoft to make its browser ever better. Ironically, Internet Explorer has been the bane
of Microsoft’s (and users’) existence, constantly being one-upped by Netscape, Opera, Mozilla
Firefox, and others. IE is a constant target for hackers, so Windows Update regularly doles out
updates to harden IE; still, it’s a game of catch-up, for the most part. As mentioned earlier in this
chapter, Windows 7 lowers the privilege level of IE now to help protect your PC. On the user end of
things, IE 8 ups the bar on performance by keeping up with the Joneses again. Here’s what IE
delivers (you must upgrade other versions, but Windows 7 has it built right in):
• Web Slices—These items let you keep up with regularly updated sites from the Favorites bar.
When a Web Slice is available on a page, a green Web Slices icon appears in the upper-right corner
of the browser. Click it to add it to the Favorites, and it’s never more than a click away at
• Accelerators—IE 8 offers a built-in collection of web add-ons and enhancements that Microsoft
calls Accelerators. To use any Accelerator, right-click a word or phrase on any web page, and
then click the Accelerator button that pops up, or use the All Accelerators entry in the pop-up
menu. There, you’ll find tools for blogging, web searching, email, maps, translating, and more,
New features in Windows® Internet Explorer® 9. :
- Hardware acceleration. Hardware-accelerated video, graphics, and text allow end user websites and applications to perform like applications that users install directly on their computers. High-definition videos play smoothly, graphics are clearer and more responsive, colors are truer, and websites can be more interactive.
- Fast installation. Internet Explorer 9 is faster to install than Internet Explorer 8 because of an upgrade process that requires fewer decisions and less overall time. Additionally, IT pros can add Internet Explorer 9 to existing Windows 7 images to streamline the deployment process.
In addition to a faster and more responsive web experience, Internet Explorer 9 also helps drive user acceptance by giving end users a clean experience that puts the focus squarely on the webpage. The streamlined user interface (UI) and seamless integration with Windows 7 provide quick access to business-critical applications, websites, and common tasks. The following sections describe key new and improved features.
- Clean design. Internet Explorer 9 UI provides just the controls necessary to support essential navigation, playing a supporting role to the webpage. Notifications now appear in the Notification Bar at the bottom of the web browser and are easier for users to understand. The New Tab intelligently displays the websites that users visit most often, so that they can quickly get to popular websites. One Box gives users a single place both to navigate to specific websites and to search the web by using their favorite search provider. Tear-off tabs allow users to use simple gestures, such as dragging and dropping to open tabs in new windows or snapping them to the edges of the screen in Windows 7.
- Rich experiences. Internet Explorer 9 provides graphically rich and immersive experiences. It does so with hardware-accelerated graphics, the Direct2D graphics infrastructure, HTML5 video tag (enabling smooth-streaming high definition video), HTML5 canvas tag (enabling interactive graphic interfaces), Scalable Vector (SVG) support (enabling crisp, scalable graphics), and International Color Consortium (ICC) (for truer colors). The Internet Explorer Test Drive website is a great place to experience these improvements.
- Windows 7 integration. Seamless integration of Internet Explorer 9 with Windows 7 enables new ways for end users to experience websites. For example, they can pin business-critical applications and websites to the taskbar, and websites can add tasks to those Jump Lists. The Jump Lists can include custom tasks that open different channels on the website. Additionally, developers can add controls to thumbnail previews, similar to the controls that Windows Media® Player adds.
