Internet Explorer 9 offers a streamlined interface, making it easy to manage your Favorites and access the other tasks and tools you use most. It provides improved navigation through tabbed browsing, web search right from the toolbar, advanced printing, easy discovery, reading and subscription to RSS feeds, and much more.

With Internet Explorer 9, you can browse the web more easily with improvements to everyday online tasks such as printing, searching, organizing, and accessing information. The program also provides round-the-clock protection from fraudulent websites and better notification when you're on a safe site. It offers better privacy and password protection, and, when used with Windows Vista, Internet Explorer 9 includes parental controls to help keep your family safer.

Features include:

  • Tabbed browsing - View multiple sites in a single browser window. Easily switch from one site to another through tabs at the top of the browser frame.
  • Quick Tabs - Easily select and navigate through open tabs by displaying thumbnails of them all in a single window.
  • Tab Groups - Tabs can be grouped and saved into logical categories, so you can open multiple tabs with a single click. A Tab Group can easily be set as the Home Page Group so the entire Tab Group opens every time Internet Explorer is launched.
  • Streamlined interface - A redesigned, streamlined interface maximizes the area of the screen that displays a webpage, so you see more of what you need, and less of what you don't.
  • Advanced printing - Internet Explorer 9 automatically scales a webpage for printing, so the entire webpage fits on your printed page. Print options also include adjustable margins, customizable page layouts, removable headers and footers, and an option to print only selected text.
  • Instant Search box - Web searches using your favorite search provider can now be entered into a search box within the toolbar, eliminating the clutter of separate toolbars. You can easily choose a provider from the dropdown list or add more providers.
  • Favorites Center - Get quick and easy access to your Favorites, Tab Groups, Browsing History, and RSS Feed subscriptions. Your Favorites Center expands when needed, and can be anchored in place for even easier access.
  • RSS feeds - Internet Explorer 9 automatically detects RSS feeds on sites and illuminates an icon on the toolbar.
  • Page zoom - Enlarge individual webpages, including both text and graphics, to either focus on specific content or to make content more accessible to those with vision limitations.
