browser RELATED icon
Hello:


On the menu bar of the IE browser, there is an icon called "RELATED."
Suppose I am looking at a website that deals with computer hardware.
If I click on the button titled RELATED then I will be taken to other
similar / related websites that deal with the same topic.

My RELATED button (on the menu bar of the IE browser) seems NOT to be
functioning well. When I click on the RELATED button I

* Is this feature still available ? I am using windows 2000 IE version
6.0.
* Is there any alternative technique to quickly access related web sites
?


Thanks

Re: browser RELATED icon
Hi Jolo,

Tools>Internet Options - Advanced tab, check "Allow web sites to use the
search pane".

The Related button is a legacy third-party IE Addon, provided by Alexa and
is not supported by MS.

You should find that your popup blocker (the built-in IE8 one) will stop the
Related report from being loaded in the side pane, so you need to turn off
the Popup blocker to use it. This has been corrected in the latest
(non-public) version of IE8 Beta. The next IE8 beta build should be released
soon.

However, since the Addon is so old, it should be replaced with an
Accelerator or Web Slice(?) for IE8.

Regards.
