Windows 7: Tweak Internet Explorer 9

20 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1 (Build 6.1.7601)
Tweak Internet Explorer 9

It is well known that no matter how much software developers strive to offer the best version of a product there will always be some nitpicker expecting a different configuration. Internet Explorer 9 just launched on Monday but tweaking solutions for the application have been around for a long time.

TweakIE9 is not the first and definitely won’t be the last third party application designed to offer you an easy way to customize the web browser a bit. As most of this sort of programs, this too is free of charge for home users.

It requires no installation, but when running it for the first time it will put a license agreement in front of you and it will also check if Internet Explorer 9 is on the system. Once the required browser is detected TweakIE9 pops its application window.

Every option available in the application is presented in a single screen and most of them require only a click to enable or disable them. A confirmation message pops up after applying them to inform you that all the changes are ready to be taken advantage of.

TweakIE9 splits the various tweaks into several sections that cover modifications related to the interface, startup behavior, downloads and security settings.

Thanks for the link, but did you notice Softpedia's concluding remarks:
"The Truth

TweakIE9 could have made available a myriad of options for customizing Microsoft’s web browser, but the current result tackles only a few of them which, in most cases, can be enabled from the IE9 as well.

Despite being a simple application, there are plenty of quirks to be addressed and many improvements to be made in order to work flawlessly."

I agree with Roncerr.

I've been dabbling with Tweak IE9 and IE9 tweaker Plus.

There seems to be some flaws in the tweaks. If you have menu bar enabled and decide to use large icons, menu bar option in context menu will disappear for good.

I think that MS may do some tweaking of it's own on IE9 because just the Icon size option is very hard to find in the registry.

As a power user, I'd rather tweak from the registry than always add a third party
