Windows 7: IE7 or IE8 Pro

Windows xp

IE7Pro is an add-on to Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 that aims to enhance the feature set provided by the browser. IE7Pro adds features such as tab enhancement, ad blocker, flash blocker, mouse gestures, inline search, privacy enhancements, online bookmark service, Greasemonkey-like user script support, and plug-in support. IE7Pro is also known as IEPro, and is available in several languages this is made possible by user translations.

IE7Pro is developed in a componentized and modular fashion. Each feature has its own 'module.' Modules can be enabled or disabled, allowing for using to use only the feature they want. IE7Pro contains the following modules.

Core Functions - Contains the core functions of IE7Pro.

Ad & Flash Blocker - Blocks all forms of advertising, including Flash ads, rich media, fly-ins, slide-ins, pop-ups, pop-unders, spyware and adware ads, and messenger ads.

Scripts & Plugins - The basic framework for userscripts and plugins. One of the most popular userscripts allows users to download videos from Youtube.

Spell Check - IE7Pro Spell Check is an Internet Explorer extension that can perform spelling checks on all text inside Internet Explorer user-input forms. IE7Pro Spell Check will check any text you enter and alert you to possible errors by adding a red underline to any potentially misspelled words. It uses dictionaries.

Auto Form Filter - Works similar to Roboform and automatically fills in forms and passwords.

Mini Download Manager (MiniDM) - Serves as a lightweight download manager. See main article.

Privacy Cleaner - Can be configured to automatically clear browser history, temporary internet files, cookies, and more each time the user closes the browser.

Online Service - Software + Services feature, allows users to have their bookmarks uploaded into the cloud. Automatically syncs bookmarks each time the browser is closed.

Inline Search - Works very similar to Firefox's search feature. Allows users to search the current web page for a word or phrase. A search pane is placed at the bottom of the Internet Explorer window. Pressing CTRL+F displays this search pane if it closed, usurping the shortcut keys for Internet Explorer's default search. The Find on this Page... option in Internet Explorer's Edit menu still launches the browser's default Find window. "Find as you type" functionality actively searches for words or portions of a word as you type in the search box. Match Case feature allows users to search for words or phrases in a case sensitive manner. Optional Highlight All feature locates every instance of your search string and highlights it in yellow. Buttons on the search pane lets users jump to the previous or next instance of your search string on the current web page. F3 or the Enter key also advances to the next occurrence of your search string. SHIFT+F3 or SHIFT+Enter also jumps to the previous occurrence of the search string.

Single IE instance - Limits Windows to only allow one Internet Explorer process at a time, thus the name of the module.

Other Features - Other features include mouse gestures, super drag & drop, saving web pages, crash recovery, and a text saver.

Hi, the filter for Simple Adblock is built-in. It makes mention of using custom lists but if I remember correct, it's experimental/beta or similar. On the InPrivateFiltering, google for blocking adds with InPrivateFiltering. There should be two popular hits for it which are from some forums best I remember. Between the two, I think there's about 5 different lists. It's been a while and can't remember the details but I do remember, to have IPF turned on when browser starts, there is a reg entry that has to be added/modded for it to do so. I have the reg files and the filter lists on disk if you need them, I can upload for you.

The good thing about Simple and IPF, they're both easily turned off in the statusbar of IE8 just in case you have site that's blocking something you want viewed.

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.

Latest is 2.5.1

Still love it. I use the scripts to disable Hotmail adds. I can't stand them.
