Same here. Goes for Chrome too.

Try this with IE8, though it is titled IE7 PRO the newest version is fully functional with IE8 and has many customizable fetures including an AD BLOCKER that works quiet well. May want to check out the turorials for each feature on the web site. Oh yes, it is free.

it is called giving you the option of installing the extra programs that come with a microsoft os.
- Loading up your OS with a bunch of competitor's products? What a horrible business model.

Microsoft would not only have to figure out how to coordinate everything with the developers, but they would also have to figure out how to incorporate things into Windows update, so users don't have to figure out how to update their software (may be fine for people like you and me, but the average user does not understand this).

I don't want the option for AIM, ICQ, Trillian, etc.. just because Microsoft ships with Windows Live Messenger.

Chrome now has ad-block. Ad-blocker is the only extension I use but you will find there are plenty of extensions for chrome now.

The Chrome adblock is far from being as functional as the Firefox version. The Firefox adblock will block the ad before it tries to load, as opposed to the Chrome version, which blocks the ad after it loads.

I haven't found an adblocker for any browser that's as functional as Adblock Plus for Firefox.

It prevents ads being displayed for me! Just let me double check..

Affirmative: all ads blocked.

Chrome simply hides the ads. Firefox actually blocks them from loading at all.

I have no problems loading IE or Firefox. I use IE when the site requires it.

I prefer Firefox because it has three extensions (adblock plus, noscript, and flashblock) that makes me feel safer when browsing and help speed up page loads by getting rid of the extra stuff.

Ditto on Adblock plus and NoScript. I don't use Flashblock because NoScript seems to take care of that as well.

When I installed Windows ,7 I configured and played with IE8. It is certainly a BIG improvement over IE6. But compared with Firefox, it is way slow. Maybe I have not used it enough nor tweaked it enough. I enjoy the ease of customizing Firefox to my liking.

More add-ons will bloat and slow down Firefox. IE8 x64 is more than passable, but I use Opera on the laptop in my specs.

That's technically incorrect. You're purchasing a license to use Windows. It's a little-known fact.
