“MSN, You have done it again”

Good Interface

Persumes you use Hotmail

I downloaded MSN explorer a while back now, and I was amazed at how good the browser actually is. MSN explorer is packed with some great features, Okay, these can also be accessed via the MSN.co.uk website, but MSN Explorer makes them all easily accessable, and you don't need to keep signing in...

Slow, cumbersome, poorly laid out, too simplified

For many people the Internet can be daunting not only because of its complexity, but also the many different programs you have to load to do different things. For a beginner, it is hard to remember when to load the browser, the e-mail client or the how to find anything on the Internet. The...

none as yet.

If like me you are fed up with Internet Explorer crashing, errors, pages not found and the rest, then I have the perfect alternative for you. MSN explorer is the Hotmail/Msn users best friend, it has now been re-modelled into the perfect partner for your surfing needs. I must stress here though...

Keeps crashing

‘Good morning’, a particularly chirpy American voice wishes me (with heartfelt sincerity, I’m sure,) as I log onto my account and into the wide world of the World Wide Web. After a few brief seconds, I see an explorer window pop up, which very informatively tells me, among other...

Looks good

Homepage is msn.co.uk

I sit here writing this message in the msn explorer program that I downloaded a few weeks ago. I had to download it because Internet Explorer had this habit of freezing up on me. At the start of it I found this program quite hard to use. MSN Explorer collects together all the other msn services...

MSN 6 better

Can't use with NTL Broadband

A few months ago I downloaded Outlook version 6. I found it an improvement on 5 and was happy. Yesterday I was unable to access the internet via my NTL Broadband. I contacted their techies who talked me through how to try and get back on line. After 20 minutes he asked me what version of Outlook...

“MSN Explorer, WHY”

published 13/09/2001

Integration with MSN and Hotmail.

Why bother.

Why Microsoft would release another web browser when they already have a quite competent product on the market (in the form of Internet Explorer) was beyond me so I though I would download MSN Explorer and see what its all about. The answer turned out to be quite simple. MSN Explorer is simply...

One of the biggest mistakes I have ever made in my computing life, is downloading this, here's why.. Not only is this a big download, it is also a massive RAM burner. I have a 128mb RAM computer, and with this browser open, the computer had to hesitate before minimising windows. That tells you...

“Explore, Explore”

published 31/01/2001

Very Easy to Use

Designed for US users

I found out about MSN Explorer from friends who are very familiar with computers and the Internet. I am very glad now that I took their advice and downloaded the software. MSN Explorer is a very different type of browser. It runs alongside, MSN Messenger and Hotmail. Both of these products are...

“DEFINITELY A TOP 3 BROWSER”

published 24/03/2001

Easy to use, free

Slow

MSN Explorer is definitely a top 3 browser. It has everything you could want and more. The only problem I have with but I'm sure many people don't have, is that it is pretty slow (but then the computer is only 233mhz with not very much memory). it's got lots of plugins, it is very user definable...
