From 8 April 2014 is no longer available Windows XP consequently Internet Explorer 8 with its automatic updates and security patches that help you to protect your PC.
So to improve the security and privacy : we must keep in mind that those who use the computer often takes itself a little risky behaviors, taking the side of the worst enemies almost without realizing it. Recently, a series of conferences dedicated to computer security, and in the context of a challenge in the middle between the technician and the collegiate, almost all newer browsers (except Chrome) were “punched” in a matter of minutes often just simply using the navigation links on pages full of fake.
The word “safe” refers to a browser should then have two meanings: it must not itself be open to attacks from viruses and other malware , and should also help you not to be
fooled by sites and programs that hide attempts to attack or fraud. With regard to the first of the two sides of security, Internet Explorer 8 is a version of this in some obsolete computer with OS Windows XP or Windows Vista , it offers a new system for managing ActiveX controls, which now behave more sure, do not require administrator privileges to the user and perform with more limited functionality (and subsidiaries).
As for the navigation support , IE8 incorporates an anti-phishing filter , which can alert the user to the contact sites that seem deceptive. Also available is the function of Filter SmartScreen , which is the same user to be able to ask the browser to check the reliability of the page and the site you are visiting: find it by clicking Security / SmartScreen Filter / Check Site Web .
Not so much in terms of security itself, but rather on that of privacy, we point out the functions InPrivate Filtering and InPrivate Browsing (it is activated by pressing the CTRL + SHIFT + P).
The first prevents the browser to open pages within a site and content from other sites in this way you can block any attempts to “tracking”, or the collection of information on user behavior on the network (perhaps by re- for advertising purposes), carried out by several specialized sites.
The InPrivate Browsing is instead a navigation mode that allows you to wander around the internet (more or less) freely without a trace of visited sites on your PC. Let me be clear: the InPrivate Browsing is not equivalent to anonymous browsing. Navigate in a completely anonymous, if that were possible, it requires a different type of instruments: proxy to connect to sail with addresses other than those provided by your ISP, the browser anonymisation services and so on. The InPrivate Browsing addresses, if anything, the question from the point of view of home: you do not want to let you know that your partner while you pretend to work constantly keep open the Rugby?
You dry your partner discovers that behind the picture of your “good girl” hides a passionate wrestling, poker and football?
Well, InPrivate Browsing is just the thing for you. InPrivate Browsing does not store cookies, marking pages in history, does not store user names and passwords. Of course, everything is a bit ‘at odds with the needs of control that sometimes arise when dealing with children and young people struggling with the network; satisfies the InPrivate Browsing, however, a need for privacy that many users feel, so much so that now all browsers are gearing up to do so.
How does Install Internet Explorer 8
The installer of Internet Explorer 8 is a bit ‘of questions to the user immediately in the best way to configure the settings of the browser (even if it will of course still all reconfigurable, one by one, later.) Here they are in detail.
- Question 1 Turn on Suggested Sites. Answering “Yes” enables the feature with which IE prompts the user sites similar to the one currently open. Turn it without hesitation: it is activating this kind of research that you will put your privacy at risk.
- Question 2: Select the Quick Settings or Custom. If you hurry, turn the quick settings and it all ends here. Otherwise, go to the settings and continue with the reading.
- Question 3 Select a search provider. The default search provider (the one with which you perform searches from the browser window) is the Microsoft’s Live Search, but let’s face it: This is a search engine far less than others, Google’s head.
- Question 4: Download the updates for your chosen search provider. Why not?
- Question 5 Choose accelerators or use the default. At your pleasure: if you are good tools out (blog, email, and translations, all done with Windows Live), proceed further; otherwise selected programs and accelerators that you prefer.
- Question 6 Turn on SmartScreen Filter. Our advice is to activate it; if you decide not to do it, keep your eyes open and remember that any time you can manually request information on a particular site using this technology.
- Question 7 Set IE8 as the default browser and import information from another browser in the system. And also in this case, the decision is up to you …
Here’s the “face” of Internet Explorer 8 . Certain aspects of the browser are in line with current market standards, and are not very different from those that characterize the Internet Explorer interface: for example, tabbed browsing
- (1) or the ability to search directly from the program window
- (2) , without having to open Google or Live Search. The “search engine” to be used for integrated research is customizable by the user. Even the ability to automatically locate and manage RSS feeds on the page
- (3) is not new, as are the panels dedicated Web Slices
- (4) : portions of Web pages, suitably prepared by developers and webmasters, including Internet Explorer (or any other browser that supports this functionality in the future) provides an autonomous updates. That figure is the slice of the so-called “Suggested Sites”: the browser can tell the browser a handful of addresses of pages similar to the one you are visiting. Next to the address bar, near the Stop and Refresh buttons, there is a third button
- (5) : allows you to enter and exit a display mode that should fix compatibility problems between some sites and browser. Let me be clear, it allows you to see the pages with better graphics (in fact, often the display will be less pleasant), but simply to make them work better. In the lower area of the window, finally, two handy buttons allow you to change the zoom level of the page
- (6) and to display any elements blocked (and thus not zoomable) within the same (7) .
