Bye bye IE...

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Frustrated ex-IE user, Nov 2, 2006.

  1. I've used IE basically since it was launched and I never felt the need (or
    desire) to change browsers.

    That's up until now.

    The fact that I can move/resize toolbars the way *I* want just pisses me
    off!!! ;-/

    Why can't I resize the address bar? I have a (big) widescreen monitor and I
    don't need and don't like an address bar this big!!! If I want to refresh I
    have to move my mouse all over to the other side of the screen... I bet
    developers were using cellphones to test the usability of the toolbars...

    Same thing with the home page button. Why can't I move it around and place
    it where *I* want. MSFT should have learned by now that they shoud not
    *impose* what *they* think is better on their users...

    I just installed Firefox and that's it for IE. When IE8 comes around *maybe*
    I'll take a look.

    that's exactly what I was commenting on with "IE 7 isn't doing it" post.
    Resizing/moving the tool bars around to suit my own taste is very important.

    MS has missed the mark if they don't know or understand that.

    Take a look at some of the various IE shells such as Avant (my fav), Maxthon, GreenBrowser etc.

    I think I saw you post a suggestion about Avant several days ago.
    I hadn't heard of it so I thought what the heck. Downloaded and tried
    it and now it's on both my computers. Thanks!

    I agree entirely. Just dl IE 7 this morning and already am frustrated with
    not being able to move or resize tool bars to fit my needs, not some
    preconceived MS programer/engineers ideas!
