Internet Explorer 11 is the newest web browser from Microsoft. It is included with Windows 8 and is also available for Windows 7.

To give you more security and increased control over your online privacy, Internet Explorer 11 includes these features:

  • InPrivate browsing – When you use an InPrivate tab, Internet Explorer 11 clears your cookies when you close the tab and does not store your passwords and webpage history.

  • Do Not Track – Send a signal to marketers and websites telling them to not collect data that enables them to track you on the web.

  • Windows SmartScreen – Get help identifying known phishing and malware sites so that you can make informed decisions about app downloads.

  • Is IE11 available for Win8 now?  I thought it was only on Win7 and Win8.1.

  • Features in Internet Explorer 9.

I cant get on line with my old gateway computer to have you help me out I have NO internet access on my older computer okay. Thank you for your help . 

  • Are you using a tracking software from your wireless router? If so, try removing the software and run without it.  I had that problem with my Gateway but the wireless router is a Netgear router.

  • Your network connection equipment may be the problem. Ensure that they are properly set up (Like they were before you formatted the old computer!)
