Internet Explorer is such an integral part of Windows that, for some time, you couldn't remove it from Windows.

However, there are still some useful add-ons you can use to improve your web browsing experience, so we decided to put together a list with them. Here are the best add-ons for Internet Explorer:
In Windows 10, the default web browser is Microsoft Edge , the latest browser developed by Microsoft.

Whether you like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Internet Explorer, Edge or any other web browser out there, setting any of them as default in Windows 10 is rather easy and, depending on the method you choose, it's also more or less a fast process.

Third-party cookies are pieces of data that are saved in your web browser by the websites you visit. However, their origins are on other domains. Most of the time, third-party cookies are used by ad services for the purpose of offering you targeted ads that are based on your browsing history and on your web searches. However, these cookies can raise privacy concerns as they can also be used to store your browsing history across websites that use the same ad services. This is the reason why, in this article, we will show you how to disable third-party cookies in all the major web browsers for Windows: Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera.
If you are a mobile user with a Windows 10 laptop, tablet or 2in1 device, you may want to know which web browser to use so that you get the maximum battery time possible.

One of the great features of Internet Explorer is its ability to save battery time while browsing the Internet.

When it comes to browsing the web, the Windows Store selection is not very rich. In the already small list of available browser apps you should remove the ones which are unreliable and bloatware apps. Also, a good browser is not necessarily free, but you should be able to enjoy a decent browsing experience at the lowest cost. This is why you bought a Windows Phone after all, isn't it? According to these requirements, most of the browsers are already crossed off the list. In this article, we created a list containing the best web browsers for Windows Phone.
A very useful tool that any web browser offers is Private browsing. Even though each browser calls it by a different name (InPrivate, Private Browsing, Incognito or Private Tab), this feature always does the same thing: allows users to browse the web without saving data like cache, history or cookies. However, this is done locally, meaning that only people using your computer won't be able to find out what websites you have visited. The websites you visited, your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and, in fact, every server your requests pass through, know what you visited. In this article we will show how to enable Private browsing in all the major web browsers and how to check if you are browsing privately or not.
