BBC News - Clicking the blue 'e'

BBC News - Clicking the blue 'e': "However some things are unforgivable, and the decision to call its web browser 'Internet Explorer' is one of them.

It is surely one of the reasons why so many users still confuse the internet, a global network of connected computers, and the world wide web, an application that generally uses the internet to move data around.

Making millions of ordinary computer users think that pressing the blue 'e' would connect them to 'the internet' rather than let them view web pages was one of Microsoft's biggest mistakes, and it still annoys me fifteen years later."
