Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer 8 is humbled to be recognized as the recipient of 2010 Excellence in Online Trust Award by (OTA) on Sep’23rd. This award represents a strong commitment by Microsoft and IE to follow OTA principles. The technologies present in IE8 that facilitate a safer browsing experience include:
- SmartScreen Filter which provides industry leading malware and phishing protection
- Features that help prevent online threats such as clickjacking, cross-site script attacks, and domain spoofing
- Helping IE customers manage their privacy through InPrivate Browsing and InPrivate Filtering
The results of this work are self-evident.
Over the course of IE 9 Beta new security features will be introduced, such as download reputation notification that warns users about higher risk downloads.
If you’re using an earlier version of Internet Explorer you should download Internet Explorer 9.
