"Internet" Explorer

Why on Earth didn't they call it Web Explorer? The only part of the internet that MSIE helps explore is what is accessible by http/ftp, i.e. pretty much the World Wide Web (the web) as conceived by Tim Berners-Lee.

I wonder whether Microsoft's marketing department could be largely to blame for the confusion about the difference between the web and the internet.
