For the most part IE is (and always has been) a simple container
for ActiveX controls (including the HTML one) rather than an
application per se.  An interesting illustration:  if you open
a file://c:/foo/bar/baz URL, where baz is a directory, you get an
ordinary Windows Explorer window displaying the contents of the
directory!
