Something good coming to IE

"Microsoft plans to give users of its new internet browser the ability to stop certain sites from gathering information from users, as the company looks to head off federal online privacy legislation."
See more at:- Microsoft boosts browser privacy | IT PRO

If true it may just be worth yet another look at IE.....

Hmm. Until IE separates each tab into separate processes as Chrome does, and make it less prone to have toolbars installed with almost everything you download, I think I'll stick with Chrome. Google can collect my information for all I care anyway. I have nothing to hide

Haven't you heard? Chrome is the 'toolbar' that gets installed with almost with everything these days...

IE already does that. In fact IE was the first browser todo just that. Even to use the process isolatetion (sandbox) to further secure it. Second, Microsoft has no control over if Product X wants to install Toolbar Y.

Just uncheck the box for the toolbar during installation.

This feature won't make me move to IE 9. I could find an add-on for Firefox that does just that, I'm sure. But, I don't really care if they track what I'm doing, I have nothing to hide. :P

The I have nothing to hide syndrome. Lovely.

As I have always said,,
"Just cause you have nothing to hide, does not mean you should submit to an invasion of privacy."

I'm just sayin'.

I think if implemented fully and correctly, this IE thing is an incredibly good thing.

Does anybody know of a good music player that has a good Equalizer? IMO, the equalizer sucks for WMP 11, realplayer free, and my sound card. I like the PowerAMP app for my android, the equalizer has a sick bass. but it's not available on pc.
