The Internet Explorer 8 web browser is among the world's most popular browsers. Learn how to browse the web with it here.
Internet Explorer 8 has search capabilities that provide suggestions as you enter your search terms. If you see a search suggestion you like, you can click on it without having to finish typing. This can be quite convenient.
Some search providers like Bing, Amazon, and Wikipedia will show visual suggestions for you to choose from. Visual suggestions can offer you previews and answers all on their own.
By default, the search provider in the search bar is the Bing search engine, but additional search providers can be added or changed as you desire. Maybe you prefer searching with Google or Amazon for shopping, or ESPN for sports news.
