Yeah, I have not been using a hosts file other than the default since I started using this computer, built new for Win7 in Oct. Those obnoxious banner ads are pushing me to start using one again, and Homer, along with its sister program, HostsXpert v4.3.

That's not going to happen. There was a push to do that in the past, but someone already has the name, and domain. But more importantly, IE7Pro's extensive feature set (except for spell check) is less needed in IE8, and may signal the demise of any chance of future development. A look at all the spam on the IE7Pro Forum would suggest they have lost interest. In fact, according to this wiki page, all development has stopped.

Either the initial app was named IEPro or was renamed to IEPro. I can't remember now which it was. I remember after the name change and update, it left the old Program Files folder intact as well as the reg entries. It's been a while since I uninstalled it for good but do think that it's last name was IEPro

Greg, did you follow any of the links above? It is easy to see the latest version v2.4.7 (released this last October) is IE7Pro.

And a quick look at the change logs (scroll down) shows it always was IE7Pro going all the way back initial Beta versions to v0.9.1.

As I said above and where you quoted me, there was a move to change it to IEPro when IE8 was in Beta, but the name IEPro was, and is already taken - as can be seen by going out to the IEPro website where we can see it has nothing to do with IE7Pro.

It was never "officially" called IEPro. Some of the fans may have [incorrectly] referred to it that way, but the program itself has always been IE7Pro.

I've used it for a number of years really for the spell check facility, I disabled the download manager when I installed it on my Windows 7 partition with Internet Explorer 8 although at present it is showing as the default search engine alongside the address bar.

I didn't go into enough details. My main focus was this,

On the user's system, the app's installed name was changed from it's initial name. This I know for a fact. It was even discussed in their forum at one time as to whether it was safe to delete the old name Program Files folder and reg entries.

IE7Pro works with IE8. I believe the developers of this software are soon going to re-brand it as something else so people don't mistakenly believe that it only works with IE7.

Oh? Where did you see that? That would be great but everything that I have found shows that development has completely stopped - including their own Wiki: IE7Pro is no longer being worked on.

That just ruined my hopes for returning to Internet Explorer 8. Once IE7Pro was fully functional with IE8 (I heard there are still a few glitches), I was going to get it for IE8 and start using it again. Now it seems I'll have to wait for Microsoft to make Internet Explorer 9 before considering going back to Internet Explorer.

What glitches? As many of us have said, it works fine with IE8. In fact, the last revision if you check the changelog link above, was for IE8.

I haven't experienced anything, but I heard other users have found glitches with IE7Pro on IE8.

Either way, it doesn't matter. I switched over to Firefox and I like it a lot more, mostly because of all the customizations I was able to do to it. IE doesn't offer the same amount of customization.
