Complete versions history of Internet Explorer
Internet Explorer then will not be separated from the browser Mosaic from Spyglass company. Spyglass was founded in 1990. In 1994, they licensed the Mosaic browser from NCSA. NCSA which stands for National Center for Supercomputing Applications is a form of state-to-state and federal cooperation for the development of national-scale cyberinfrastructure.
In 1994, Microsoft began to realize that the market share in the browser is very large and should not be left alone. But they do not want to spend the time to write code from scratch. Therefore they took the initiative to find Netscape to request a Netscape Navigator browser license, which unfortunately was rejected.
Finally, Microsoft also met Spyglass and bought Mosaic license in 1995. By doing some modifications, in August 1995, the Internet Explorer 1.0 was born as an add-on in Windows 95 Microsoft Plus package.

Version 4 was released September 1997 which became part of Windows 95 OSR or OEM Service Release 2.5 and last beta version of Windows 98 and modified for closer integrity with Microsoft Windows.
Version 5 came out in March 1995 followed by Microsoft’s release of IE 5.0 Beta version at the end of 1998. Since 2009 version 8.0 was released, the first public beta was on March 5, 2008.
