IE7Pro: Making Browsing Faster, Responsive & Sleeker

Microsoft is stirring again - they have just released Internet Explorer Pro 1.2 last Tuesday which is quite an amazing add-on if early reports are to be taken seriously.

To use a hackneyed phrase, it looks like IE7Pro comes with all the "bells and whistles" which you can add on to your present IE7 (and IE6). The add-on can be downloaded free. It's been a long time since we got some good news from Microsoft. You can read a review here.

Here are some of the features and tweaks which will make your IE a
more enjoyable browser to use:

Tabbed Browsing Management / Spell Check / Inline Search / Super Drag Drop / Crash Recovery / Proxy Switcher / Mouse Gesture / Tab History Browser / Web Accelerator / User Agent Switcher / Webpage Capturer / AD Blocker / Flash Block / Greasemonkey-like User Scripts platform / User Plug-ins...

And many more power-packed features.

With an array of goodie features, you might wonder how you ever lived without IE7Pro. While many browser users have gone over to Mozilla Firefox, IE7Pro might help to win back some fans.

But here's a little warning...

Over at ForTheClueless.net, it's reported that there's a little problem for users of IE7Pro and it involves Adsense ads.

It seems your Adsense earnings might be affected by using IE7Pro with the Ad Blocker turned on. By default, the system turns on the Ad Blocker which bars all ads from appearing on all websites and blogs you visit.

Well, this sounds like a damper. So are you staying put with Firefox?

I was rdy to install it before the adsense mention ;). Once they get that resolved I will definetely get it; right now I use firefox because it seems to eat up less ram with more tabs open, plus their plugins are great...but if something better comes without the adsense bugs I'm all for it

I think Firefox is much more stable and SEO friendly. If you are an internet market or a webmaster or administrator, it makes a lot of sense to use it. I use it a lot to view areas of websites that could help me understand codes better. I will be writing on these soon, I hope.

I never new this was available, thanks!
I just downloaded it.
It gives you the option of unchecking ad blocker before installing, but I think most people will keep it checked :(
I do like it but Its very bad for AdSense publishers.

You using it is not going to effect your adsense earnings because you can't/shouldn't earn money clicking your own adverts.

However, obviously other users viewing your web properties with it will have your ads blocked.

I don't think you should worry though, not unless Microsoft force it down users throats as I doubt that a significant amount of people will use it. Those savvy enough to know about it probably use, and will stick, to firefox.

Interesting ... Microsoft is getting more aggressive in the web arena. This is definitely aimed at FireFox and it's billion add ons. Similarly, their new Silverlight seems like Flash for .net. Microsoft has always loved "borrowing" ideas from the competition....

I think I'll just stay with Firefox. It has be reliable and IE has not. I'll keep my eye on it and see how things go but like I say I'll stick to Mozilla for now.

Microsoft is acting like teacher from a technology transfer university that don't get along: this ad blocker is quite a hit from google clients that use AdSense, right? I wonder why Microsoft did such a thing...

> Cristian: U seem to be making commenting an art form here. I can live with it for a while though. Hope it gets your site somewhere, LOL!

This is really a good piece of news for Windows lovers. For me it's just another proof of struggle coming from Bill's part, trying to make people turn back to the classic IE from other internet browsers.

Internet service providers said...

why dont you use firefox and avoid all this problems , if you decide using iexplorer so dont complain because you already know what happen

Markk said...

> Internet service provider: Oh no, I'm not complaining. Just to let folks know some glitches in IE7. In fact, I'm using Flock as my main browser. Firefox is also one of my backups.
