    "Time For Change"

    November 24, 2013  |   By T_G_BENNETT

    Version: Windows Internet Explorer 8 for MSN (Windows XP) 8.0.6001.18702IC

    Pros

    Internet Explorer is functional, namely, providing features that alert the user that an action needs to be performed, for example, loading Adobe Flash Player to be installed.

    Cons

    There are drawbacks with Internet Explorer, for example, frequent display of message bars, freezing of mouse pointer, and pop-ups regarding Internet Explorer needing to close due to an error.

    Summary

    Consider other browsers, such as Firefox, Opera or Google. They are less problematic than Internet Explorer in the areas mentioned previously.

    "TYPICAL MICROSOFT"

    February 26, 2013  |   By movieboy1

    Version: Windows Internet Explorer 8 for MSN (Windows XP) 8.0.6001.18702IC

    Pros

    FREE TO DOWNLOAD. YOU WILL HAVE TO DO THAT MANY TIMES. IT NEVER WORKS LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO RATE THE PROS OF IT! MUST NOT BE ANY?

    Cons

    I HAVE TO RE-INSTALL THIS CRAP ONCE A WEEK. I HAVE IE 9 & 10 ON 2 OTHER PC'S RUNNING WINDOWS 7 AND THEY ARE WORTHLESS ALSO.

    Summary

    GOOGLE CHROME, AND FIREFOX WORK FINE. IE 8 IS TOO BUSY DOWNLOADING ADS, COMMERCIALS, AND CRAP NO ONE WANTS TO SEE OR HERE! GO ANDROID! GET YOURSELF A NON-WINDOWS WIFI WIRELESS DEVICE!

    June 1, 2012  |   By pennyham

    Version: Windows Internet Explorer 8 for MSN (Windows XP) 8.0.6001.18702IC

    Pros

    Some access to web sites, very few.

    "Works faster and less bugs."

    April 3, 2012  |   By enochjli64

    Version: Windows Internet Explorer 8 for MSN (Windows XP) 8.0.6001.18702IC

    Pros

    Faster than IE7 and smoother.

    Cons

    There are still security holes (which is what updates are for). Looks almost exactly like IE7 except with a better-looking tab.

    "Very irritating"

    June 18, 2010  |   By nmweatherman

    Version: Windows Internet Explorer 8 for MSN (Windows XP) 8.0.6001.18702IC

    Pros

    Right now I'm ready to rollback to IE7

    Cons

    Nag, nag, nag

    Summary

    This browser is making me irritable, even crazy. Everytime I start it up I get the Welcome To IE8 screen like a nag, with no option to "Don't show this again." It is constantly nagging me to turn on autocomplete or to remember a password/username. This creates bunches of additional clicks. The tabbed browsing is complicated and I often wind up offline again. The problem is, I've tried Firefox and Opera...they're no better. Will anyone ever create a simple, fast browser that doesn't forget everything the moment you go offline? And one that won't nag and nag and nag?

    Updated on Sep 20, 2010

    I gotta add this. Man, oh man, this browser is crap.

    "Dont bother with this browser-"

    May 6, 2010  |   By andreaborman

    Version: Windows Internet Explorer 8 for MSN (Windows XP) 8.0.6001.18702IC

    Pros

    none a terrable browser,IExplorer 8 is this years newest version of internet explorer but slow like all the other I explorers.

    Cons

    Internet Explorer* this years version of Internet explorer is just like the other internet explorers slow,crashes,does not load pages terrable.A wast of time and should be got rid of and replaced with Flock,firefox or Google chrome instead.

    Summary

    Internet explorer 8 like all the other internet explorers is useless and why its still the main browser I do not know. Because it is still the main browser you need it to dowload any new browser such as Firefox or flock.Why dont they just get rid of Internet explorer and replace it with Flock or google chrome instead.I have had nothing but problems with Internet explorer and all versions of it.andrea.
