Internet Operating Systems 2
Operating Systems Analysis: Operating Systems Common on the Internet
Introduction
There are three main operating systems that are common on the Internet today. These
three main operating systems are Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems. Each
operating has certain browsers that are compatible for surfing the Internet. Each one also has
additional software that makes certain features available on the Web. There are threats on the
Internet to the users operating system. Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware protection are essential
on the Internet today.
Microsoft Windows Operating Systems
OSused on the Internet are like Windows vista and also W7 and XP. They all use common
browsers such as Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. The most commonly used browser for
these versions of Windows are added features from previous versions. IE8 has added improved
tab-handling. Tab-handling allows the user to have multiple web pages open in one browser
without having to open the program twice (Gralla, 2009). This makes it easy to organize and find
the websites that the user has open. IE8 has added a feature called InPrivate Browsing. This
allows the user to surf the web without the content of their session being saved anywhere on the
computer. The new search bar allows the user to select a default search provider such as Google,
Yahoo, or Bing. IE8 also offers a compatibility mode for websites that were designed to run in
IE7 and will not run properly in IE8 (Gralla, 2009). Internet Explorer is only available on
Windows-based computers.
