If I want to refer to a computer program, like, e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc., do I need an article (definite/indefinite?) ?

(1) use the Internet Explorer, use the Firefox, use the Google Chrome

(2) use an Internet Explorer, use a Firefox, use a Google Chrome

(3) use Internet Explorer, use Firefox, use Google Chrome


Just like with other names (e.g. for persons or countries), don't use an article.
