Today's is a real challenge for bestresourcesnow: find at least 10 best extensions and add-ons for Internet Explorer.
Undeniably, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are the most used browsers because, thanks to extensions or add-ons, they allow you to implement applications and tools to be used on the websites you browse.
Internet Explorer, Microsoft's browser, has unfortunately never focused too much on addons and only recently, with Internet Explorer 9, has it opened a gallery of extensions, which, however, remains rather sparse.
Internet Exporer 9 is a great browser, on par with others and perhaps even better when taken alone.
Without extensions, however, it remains 10 steps behind Firefox and Chrome.
To try to dispel this taboo of IE, let's see well 18 best extensions, also called add-ons or add-ons, for Internet Explorer 11.
First of all we must underline an important function of Internet Explorer on Windows 7 8 and 10 (also because for XP there is no IE9).
All sites can be fixed for quick opening on the taskbar.
Some websites such as Facebook, Twitter or other online applications, newspapers and social networks then implement quick links that appear by right-clicking on the locked icon in the Windows taskbar.
L'integration between the system and the browser is perhaps the best additional feature of Internet Explorer 11.
Many of these addons are no longer found because Microsoft has withdrawn the Internet Explorer.r extension site
