- WHICH BROWSER DOES THE GOOD JOB? MICROSOFT EXPLORER OR MSN EXPLORER?

A strange question as both are Microsoft products and are bundled packages delivered with windows operating systems since Windows 95 up the the XP brand.

However, there are some differences between the two clients. A main difference is that Microsoft Explorer is "a sort of public source browser" as Microsoft does accept Add-ons to the client. In the contrary MSN Explorer is a private client browser for msn.com (such as AOL, CompuServe; Yahoo and the like private browsers) that does not allow any Add-on from third parties.

And that difference is important.

As we all know, Adds-On may get messy with each other and with Microsoft operating system's Dynamic Library Links (DLLs) stored in Windows System Folder - particularly when your computer is operating under Microsoft brands other than XP.

Indeed, developers, instead of keeping all DLLs of their product in the installation folder, used to replace some DLLs in Windows System Folder with DLLs from their own products. This is particularly true for Windows 95, 98, Me and 2000.

The "intruding" DLL may then perturb the harmonious functioning of the operating system and might become the cause for hang ups.

XP operating system is protected against such intrusions, which partially explained the stability of XP compared to previous Microsoft operating systems. Third parties cannot anymore replace XP operating system's DLLs with their own in the System Folder. However, they have the possibility to modify registry keys. (You also do have the possibility to control even that occurrence if you have AdWatch from Ad-Aware SE Plus from Lavasoft.de installed)

Further, since XP Service Pack2 hit the counter, you may have experienced some glitches in Microsoft Explorer's performance such as links that do not open when you click on; or that do not open when you right click to open in another window. You may even have experienced that links to media do not start the media player. Etc. Africabiz dedicated a delivery to the problem that is here to review.You may visit this website fully dedicated to Internet Explorer glitches that also gives tips to overcome them.

TRY MSN EXPLORER

Till now we have not noticed any of such nuisances when using MSN Explorer. Even under Service Pack2, which highlights the difference between Microsoft Explorer and MSN Explorer as exposed at the beginning of this delivery.

Then it is worthwhile then to use MSN Explorer. You will experience a better web browsing, media playing and video watching.

To be able to use MSN Explorer, you do not need to have Microsoft as your Internet Service Provider.


What you absolutely need is a Microsoft HotMail account, which gives you a Microsoft Identity composed of your HotMail Email address (something like johndoe@hotmail.com) and a Microsoft Password (you password to login to your HotMail account) that together are the sesame key, which permits you login to your MSN Explorer account. Additionally you must also install Microsoft Messenger or Windows Messenger.

Click on the MSN Explorer Logo that is right on the desktop or available through "Start" and follow instructions on-screen.
