In Internet Explorer, addons are implemented as special applications with start with IE and provide toolbars, buttons and handlers for various multimedia content. Some common add-ons are Adobe Flash, QuickTime, and Silverlight. Another example is the Classic IE addon, which is part of Classic Shell, which restores the caption to the title bar, and page loading progress indicator bar and security zone to IE's status bar. If you have many addons installed, it can affect the browser's performance and also cause stability issues.
