A visual history of Internet Explorer from 1 to 9

Internet Explorer keeps evolving

It's a safe bet that most Windows users have used multiple versions of Internet Explorer. After all, it has been around for years now!

As each new version comes along, we move right into the new user interface and new features and promptly forget what it was like to use the previous version. As such, with IE9 looming, it is quite a trip down memory lane to take a look back at the earlier versions.

In this gallery, you'll be able to browse through the main user interface and several common dialog boxes from Internet Explorer 1 to Windows Internet Explorer 9.

By the way, you can now test drive IE9.
