Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (also called IE6 SP1) is the latest browser from Microsoft that includes Outlook Express 6, Net Meeting and many new privacy and customisation features. Note that IE6 SP1 will not run on Windows 95.

IE6 can be installed as an upgrade to existing versions of Internet Explorer (including IE6), or on computers with no previous Internet Explorer installation. It features a 'new look' and new capabilities, including enhanced Explorer bars, integrated instant messaging, media playback and automatic picture resizing. Internet Explorer 6 can also help to maintain the privacy of personal information on the Web and provide fault collection that can identify problems that need to be fixed in future updates to the Windows Internet technologies. It is supposed to help you determine the cause of a browser crash rather than the rather cryptic messages that appear (don't hold your breath!).

IE6 is delivered by 'active' setup. Download the small file (ie6setup.exe), then double-click on it to select which components you want from the IE6 package - it will then start to download these components. You can run this file at anytime - so if your current connection is slow or the server is a little overloaded, it may be worthwhile running the program at a later date. If you want to download IE6, the best procedure is to download the setup file, backup your system and data files and then run the setup to begin the full download and setup.
