Microsoft Internet Explorer (also known as Windows Internet Explorer in newer versions of Windows) is the default graphical internet browser built into most versions of Windows.

Microsoft Internet Explorer can view static and dynamic web pages, and several graphic file formats including JPEGs, GIFs, and PNGs. In addition, it allows you to view various other file formats using helper applications. These helper applications were called browser plug-ins in very old versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, but Microsoft evolved the helper applications to a new technology called ActiveX.

Getting back to ActiveX, the Shockwave Flash ActiveX Control is the most well known of all controls.
