Microsoft Internet Explorer logo Evolution

How the Internet Explorer logo has changed over the years! Initially, Microsoft chose the World to symbolize its browser, a metaphor for possibility and connection. And it is called the World Wide Web!

An early logo design consisted of the Windows symbol (circa Windows 95) and a circle representing a globe. In time, an orbiter was introduced, to represent speed and exploration.

With Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 7, came a new logo with a blue glass texture that had more dimension, an evolution of the familiar blue e.

This new logo was developed to complement the design and personality of Windows Vista. Internet Explorer 8 retains the same logo, having also shipped during the Windows Vista timeframe.

For Windows 7 & Internet Explorer 9, it was time to evolve the logo to embody the new, high performance modern platform and user interface.
