|Version of Internet Explorer|
Internet Explorer 3 is a version of Internet Explorer that was released on 24 August 1996. It was shipped with Windows 95 OSR2 but is also available for Windows 3.1x, Windows NT 3.51, and versions of Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0 with older versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. This is the first version of Internet Explorer to include Microsoft Internet Mail and News, later known as Outlook Express. The versions included with IE 3 (1.0 and 2.0) are the only ones with the "MORTIMER" easter egg. See here for more details.
32-bit Setup will refuse to install on Windows with Internet Explorer 4 or newer installed. However, the 16-bit Setup lets the user install it, even with an newer version installed, but it will display a message that a 32-bit version is available for Windows 95 (Windows NT 4.0 has been just released at the time IE 3 was released, but only with IE 2 installed) Opening the link, which leads to a long-gone Microsoft website will redirect to the Microsoft home page instead.
There are various installers for the 32-bit IE 3:
