IE Tab for Chrome
Use IE to view web pages from within a Chrome tab

There's a lot to like about Google Chrome: a clean and simple design, convenient tab management, and of course its blistering speed. But if you visit a page that can only be displayed with Internet Explorer then none of this will be of any use at all, and you'll be forced to fire up a copy of IE to view the site properly.

There is a more convenient solution, though, and it's called IE Tab. Install this Chrome extension and it adds an IE button to your toolbar. If you visit a site that requires Internet Explorer, then clicking the button will open a new Chrome tab that uses IE's rendering engine to display the page as its designer intended.

This is all very useful in itself, but the authors have one more trick to further speed up the process. Click the Auto URLs button, add the IE-only pages that you view regularly (or use wildcards like http://www.microsoft.com/* to specify a whole site) and they'll automatically be displayed in IE Tab whenever you visit.

Note that you need to be using Google Chrome to install and use IE Tab.

IE Tab for Chome will only work with the Windows version of Google Chrome, for obvious reasons!

Verdict:

There are some sites that still insist you run IE, unfortunately, but installing IE Tab lets Chrome users access them at a click

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
