RE: IE7: What is logic for having typical buttons all over the pla
Go ahead and make Internet Explorer more secure, but fire the idiots who keep
messing with the GUI.
I hate many of the changes in IE7. Specifically, the Refresh and Stop
buttons are separated from the Back and Forward buttons. Who the hell thought
this was a good idea? Especially if using a crappy device like a touchpad on
Second, the Back, Forward, Stop, Refresh and Home buttons should all be
BESIDE one another, like they were in IE6. Or at least customizable to move
around. And what was wrong with the icons from IE6? NOTHING. The old icons
were better and easier to distinguish from one another.
Third, I hate the "Live Search" and the fact it cannot be removed by
"right-clicking" to hide it. Save the following as NoSearchBox.Reg and then
double-click it. It will remove the dumb Live Search feature.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
I hope Microsoft takes note of some of this. I am a fan of IE. I choose not
to use Firefox, or Opera, or Chrome or whatever else is out there. I don't
care about tabbed browsing. I always open in a new window anyways, but at
least the "tabbed" feature can be turned off. The same cannot be said about
the other lousy changes that are in IE7. I wish I could go back to IE6.
