1. I've seen this problem for years now - the 'Back' button often does not work.  This is not a problem with the web sites since I can use Google Chrome and not get the same problem.  How is it that the Chrome developers have figured this one out and not Microsoft?
2. Often the first time I attempt to go to a site, I get something like 'cannot navigate to...', and I have to attempt a second time and then it works.  Again, this is not a problem with other browsers such as Google Chrome.

I can't understand why Microsoft is not interested in fixing these very common problems - I was loyal to Microsoft for years until I couldn't stand it any longer and switched to Chrome for most of my browsing.  With every new version of IE I thought that these problems would surely be fixed, but not so.

I don't really care about all that - I just want the browser to work - doesn't Microsoft realize that this is all that users want?
So Google is doing some sort of nasty business to make Chrome seem much better... all users see is that Chrome is better - wake up Microsoft!

links that appear on websearch results pages are called click-through links.... search results redirect first to the google webservers where they record and track the links that you click on. does not use click-through links...

google also offer a free tool called google analytics that many websites put on their sites to get visitation statistics....

they work the same way.... you clicking is redirected first to the google servers where they record the click event, where it was from and where it is going...

IE's Tracking Protection and Security settings prevents the recording of your surfing history by third-parties....

Obviously Google Chrome allows everything google.
