Cybernet Recommends 5 IE Addons
« on: May 07, 2007, 09:34:52 AM »
Some useful addons for IE7..

Quote
  • 1.ieSpell – Spell-check in my opinion is something that should have been integrated into the browser from the start. However, it wasn’t. Luckily ieSpell is a free add-on that will spell-check any text found in input boxes on a Web page. This is great if you’re in forums, or commenting frequently.
  • 2.IE7 Open Last Closed Tab – This is one of the most handy add-ons yet! With tabs being a big part of IE7, once again, I’m surprised this feature wasn’t included with the browser from the start.  If you’re like me, you have multiple tabs opened at once. At least once a day I close a tab that I really didn’t mean to close. Instead of trying to remember exactly what the URL is, you just have to press “Alt-X” and the last closed tab will open.
  • 3. Inline Search – If you’re needing to search a page for a specific word or term, this will do the trick, and will do so better than the built in search. It’s more of an extra added convenience because it searches while you type. It’s 1000 times better than the normal find box, but it’s not as nice as the “find while you type” feature that Firefox offers. It’s definitely worth installing though!
  • 4. Foxy Tunes – Talk about a crowd-pleaser! Foxy Tunes allows you to control your favorite media player like iTunes, Winamp, Windows Media Player, etc., without ever leaving your browser! For those who like to have their Tunes playing, this is a must-have. I haven’t come across one complaint yet for this add-on.
  • 5. RoboForm – Sometimes it’s hard to remember all of your passwords for all of the accounts you have online.  This is where RoboForm comes in.  It will save your password information from logins and automatically log you in to the password protected sites that you visit. It also makes the process of filling out forms easier by using identity presets.

I tell you what. The best add-on for IE would be Maxthon.

Strange they dont list IE7Pro http://www.ie7pro.com/ nice free bundle. I have it for mouse gestures alone. True about Maxthon...

You beat me to it, I installed IE7Pro mostly for the link dragging and dropping, ever since I installed that addon on Firefox it is an absolutely indispensable function to me.  I almost never use IE7, but when I have to it is nice to have that functionality.  Didn't IE7Pro add addblock too? I dunno, I use it so infrequently.

Yes, they did. In my eyes IE7Pro seems to be changing and becomming more of a safety device of a kind instead of adding more useful features. The latest couple of updates has been disappointing to me.

Did you check the useful scripting like Google preview which come with standard package? Seems most Greasemonkey scripts can be converted. Open up some possibilities. Better tab handling, alias for address/search bar, Adblocking, Super Drag and Drop, Right click "Search with" mouse gestures besides tweaks from http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/ is not so bad in 1 installation - if you absolutely want "original" IE7.

These might be useful if I ever used IE. But since I don't, no use getting them.  :-[
