That's right. That's the way it works in XP, even in IE8 but not in Vista
or W7. The TIF does store them but the TIF viewer may not show them.

You can copy the path to the TIF in the Address bar and build a chdir
command in a cmd window. E.g. press Alt-d, Ctrl-c in your TIF Viewer, then
switch to a cmd window and type: cd /d (plus a space) then right-click,
Paste and press Enter. Then enter a command pipeline, like:
dir/a/s | find "2010-02-24 1" | sort | more
(depending on the format of your short-date and how much detail you want.)
Unfortunately, that only finds the stored file names. In order to find
more, such as the URL it came from, you would need to open the appropriate
index.dat in Notepad and find the stored file name.
Another change in reduced functionality and usability due to
