Internet Explorer With the release of Internet Explorer's first beta upon is, it's a good time to look back upon the history of Microsoft's web browser. As it turns out, Internet Explorer turns 15 today, with the first version released August 16, 1995. Pretty turbulent history, there.

The main with netscape compared with internet explorer concerning webdesign was measurement, internet explorer could do pixel perfect adjustment where netscape had some weird ~8 pixel snap (for frame anyway, curse them as much as you could they were a bandwidth saver).

internet explorer was way more web designer friendly at that time, more tolerant to error, and "fast" javascript.

these time were easier, right now it is all about SEO,
and less about the actual content
