Internet Explorer is a web browser created and "maintained" by Microsoft. It is infamous for having a ridiculously large amount of security holes -- many of them being pathetically easy to execute and often resulting from sloppy, if not entirely incorrect, code -- as well as extremely poor web standards support.
