Internet Explorer (formerly: Microsoft Internet Explorer, MSIE) – a web browser, a product of the American company Microsoft. Internet Explorer in a Windows version is developed on base of the Mosaic code purchased from Spyglass. The program was officially presented on August 23, 1995.

Up to version 6, Internet Explorer was a set of three modules – a web browser, e-mail program and news reader. The last two modules were in the form of one program called Outlook Express. An important feature of Internet Explorer is the open nature of the program, thanks to which third companies can create so-called plugins that extend the functionality of the browser.

Internet Explorer is developed only in a version for MS Windows operating system, there were also versions for other platforms – including Mac OS and Mac OS X (based on Tasman engine, in 2003 the development of IE for these systems was discontinued) and Solaris and HP-UX (discontinued in 2001).

Mutt – a small but very powerful text-based mail client for Unix operating systems. Though written from scratch, Mutt’s initial interface was based largely on the ELM mail client. To a large extent, Mutt is still very ELM-like in presentation of information in menus (and in fact, ELM users will find it quite painless to switch as the default key bindings are identical).

Main Mutt features are:
– color support
– message threading
– MIME support
– PGP/MIME
– various features to support mailing lists, including list-reply
– POP3 and IMAP support
– full control of message headers when composing
– support for multiple mailbox formats (mbox, MMDF, MH, maildir)
– highly customizable, including keybindings and macros
– change configuration automatically based on recipients, current folder, etc.
– searches using regular expressions, including an internal pattern matching language
– Delivery Status Notification (DSN) support
– postpone message composition indefinetly for later recall
– easily include attachments when composing, even from the command line
– ability to specify alternate addresses for recognition of mail forwarded from other accounts, with ability to set the From: headers on replies/etc. accordingly
– multiple message tagging
– reply to or forward multiple messages at once
– .mailrc style configuration files
– translation into at least 20 languages

Mutt was originally written by Michael Elkins but is now developed and maintained by the members of the Mutt development mailing list.
