      n 1: a commercial browser [syn: Internet Explorer, Explorer,

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Internet Explorer
  IE
  MSIE
  
      (IE, MSIE) Microsoft's free World-Wide
     Web browser for Microsoft Windows, Windows 95, Windows
     NT, and Macintosh.  Internet Explorer is the main rival to
     Netscape Navigator (which runs on many more platforms).
     Both support the same core features and offer incompatible
     extensions.
  
     Microsoft combined later versions of IE with their file
     system browser, "Explorer" and bundled it with Windows 95
     in an attempt to use their dominance of the desktop
     operating system market to force users to abandon Netscape's
     browser, which they perceived as a potential threat.  This,
     and other dubious business moves, became the subject of a US
     Department of Justice antitrust trial in late 1998/early 1999.
