Windows 7: IE8 accelerators

IE8 accelerators

Does any one know if this feature is only in IE8? I swear there is something similar in IE7 Vista.

Hi Surfer.
You are correct. It was in earlier editions. The link given by AirBot, refers to them as far back as IE6. They have also been available as third party addons. IE8 has made it easier to add them in and rebadged them. They certainly run with more ease than the previous addons.
