The IMCE file browser was originally developed to work specifically with the TinyMCE text editor. The IMCE acronym stands for Images for Moxie Code Editor.
The original purpose of the IMCE file browser was to provide a tool that helped a user more easily embed images. Over time, this module has grown into a full-featured, user-friendly file browser with the capability of performing some simple image operations such as resizing and thumbnail creation.
Administrators can also now create and delete directories from within the file browser itself.
