"OK, I guess!!"

May 05, 2009  |  By dh0597b

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

Pros

Seems to load faster than IE7 pro, and internet access seems improved, but it will hang, then it's tough to get out of. Haven't really exercised it that much, is a bit cluttered, need to clean it up when I learn more about it

Cons

I put this on my vista ultimate pc, may move it to my xp w/sp3 pc, its faster then vista will ever be anyway, so there maybe an overall improvement!!, I 'll keep it a little longer before tanking it.

Summary

To much MSN junk on the the browser page, going to try cleaning it up, not for the newbie or faint hearted!!

"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!

"Works faster and less bugs."

April 03, 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 06, 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.
