    IE Security Fixes

    OK, so I use IE, this isn't a, "Just use Mozilla" thread.

    Just wondering if the recent enhancements to IE from SP2 irritate anyone else, the script blocker, pop-up blocker, whatever blockers, seem to cause more of an issue than those things in which they are trying to protect you from. A click is a click whether it be to allow active content or to close a window or to press ok. It all seems somewhat counter productive. You can turn it off, but most people won't, thus rendering many js dependent web pages inoperable.

    Firefox is similar to IE in the way it blocks certain content(at least in 1.0PR). You can't install an extension without first adding the site that's trying to install the extension to an 'allow' list.
    I don't remember the other issues with IE since I disabled most of them and switched operating systems a few weeks later.
