Internet Explorer was one of the most widely used web browsers, attaining a peak of about 95% usage share during 20.
This came after Microsoft used bundling to win the first browser war against Netscape, which was the dominant browser in the 1990s.
Internet Explorer was to be omitted from Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 in Europe, but Microsoft ultimately included it, with a browser option screen allowing users to select any of several web browsers (including Internet Explorer).

On March 17, 2015, Microsoft announced that Microsoft Edge will replace Internet Explorer as the default browser on its Windows 10 devices.
This effectively makes Internet Explorer 11 the last release.
This has resulted in a number of web pages that appear broken in standards-compliant web browsers and has introduced the need for a "quirks mode" to allow for rendering improper elements meant for Internet Explorer in these other browsers.
Internet Explorer has introduced a number of extensions to the DOM that have been adopted by other browsers.
Leading up to the release of the final browser, Microsoft released updated platform previews, each featuring improved Java Script compiling (32-bit version), improved scores on the Acid3 test, as well as additional HTML5 standards support, approximately every 6 weeks. The first public beta was released at a special event in San Francisco, which was themed around "the beauty of the web".
