Internet Explorer 6

Internet Explorer 6 is a set of core technologies in Windows® XP Home Edition and Windows XP Professional, and is available to users of Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me), Windows NT® Workstation 4.0, and Windows 2000 Professional operating systems. Internet Explorer 6 includes many new and enhanced features that can simplify the daily tasks that you perform, while helping you to maintain the privacy of your personal information on the Web.

Web Privacy
Internet Explorer 6 helps protect your privacy on the Web by giving you more control over cookies and more information on a Web site's privacy policy. A cookie is a small text file created by a Web site and can be stored on your computer so that next time you visit the site, it can automatically access information about you, such as your browsing preferences, or your name, address, or phone number. A Web site's privacy policy tells you what kind of information the site collects, to whom it gives that information, and how it uses the information.

With the new innovative browser capabilities including Media Bar, Image toolbar, Auto Image resizing and more, you can experience the Web the way you want.

Internet Explorer 6 takes steps to improve Web browser software reliability. When Internet Explorer stops or closes unexpectedly, it displays the new Internet Explorer Error Reporting Tool, rather than the standard fault dialog box.  The Internet Explorer Error Reporting Tool provides fault collection services. It offers to extract information about the Internet Explorer problem and upload the data to Microsoft for analysis. You can view details about the problem and then choose whether to transmit the fault information to Microsoft and restart Internet Explorer. If a known problem occurs, a link can be provided to a Service Pack, hot fix, or Knowledge Base article. If Microsoft has not previously found or addressed the problem, the necessary information can be transmitted to a Microsoft problem database for investigation. This information can help determine potential problems that Microsoft needs to fix in future Internet Explorer Service Packs.
