Internet Explorer vs. Microsoft Edge is a series of exploitable images comparing to images of the same character, similar to Drakeposting. In the image, one image of the character is juxtaposed against the logo for software company Microsoft's internet browser Internet Explorer, and the other image of the character is juxtaposed against the logo for Microsoft's Microsoft Edge internet browser. The comparison expresses the idea that one is milquetoast, while the other is edgy or dangerous in a humorous manner.
The earliest known usage of the image was posted on the /r/raimimemes subreddit by asifsaj on September 20th, 2018. In the image, a photograph of actor Tobey Maguire's portrayal of the character Spider-Man from the Sam Raimi-directed series of films juxtaposes the Internet Explorer logo, while the image of Tobey Maguire as the "evil" Peter Parker in the 2007 superhero film Spider-Man 3 juxtaposed against the Microsoft Edge logo.
