All of the major web browsers out there pride themselves on their ability to be customized, offering users a unique, convenient and fun experience. Internet Explorer is certainly no different, as IE add-ons allow you to personalize the browser for how you access your favorite content and services. Though Internet Explorer add-ons cover almost any category of interests, they are divided into four distinct types:
- Search Providers – Get real-time (and relevant) search suggestions based on what you type.
- Accelerators – Simply highlight the text from any web page, click on the blue Accelerator icon, and do everything from map an address to translate a phrase and more.
- Web Slices – Have a favorite aspect of a certain site? Subscribe to it directly and easily access it from your favorites bar.
- Toolbars – Just about any feature imaginable can be found on a toolbar, from sports scores and stock tickers to weather information, images, videos and much more.
Internet Explorer Add-ons allow the user to customize their browsing experience while using Internet Explorer to surf the Web and access your favorite services.
