Internet Explorer 2.0 is a version of Internet Explorer released in late 1995 that introduced support for new features such as SSL (Secure Socket Layer), HTTP Cookies, VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language), and JavaScript. An integrated e-Mail and news client also surfaced. Through OLE drag-and-drop was supported in IE, a PPP network stack was included for operating systems which did not contain such functionality. Also a bookmark import utility was introduced to migrate users' bookmarks from Netscape.

This version comes pre-installed with Windows NT 4.0 and the OSR1 release of Windows 95 (and OSR2.x if the hardware is not compatible with the included future releases of Internet Explorer), but is also available for versions of Windows 95 without or with an earlier version of Internet Explorer. A 16-bit version was available for Windows 3.1x and Windows NT 3.51. It didn't require Win32s to be installed for Windows 3.1x, unlike its predecessor (version 1.5).
