Internet Explorer is the world’s most popular Web browser. Security, ease of use, and improvements in RSS, CSS, and Ajax support are Microsoft’s priorities.

Internet Explorer 8 includes two main new tools: one is Accelerators (previously known as Activities), and the other is Web Slices. The first one gives you direct access to various online services just by right-clicking anywhere on the web page or on highlighted text. For instance, you can look up a word, map an address or perform a search with those marked words. The main drawback is that all these options use Microsoft’s Windows Live services which means that you’re stuck with them.

Regarding Internet Explorer’s Web Slices, these are a kind of RSS-style tool that tracks changes and updates to selected websites and keeps you informed about them. It comes in really handy for tracking small changes that can’t be followed by RSS, without having to visit the site: online auction bids, stock exchange values, weather information and more.

Besides these two tools, Internet Explorer 8 also includes many interesting new features. One of them, the ‘Suggested sites‘ function, recommends new websites you may not know about, based on your browsing history.
