Inline Search for Internet Explorer

Inline search

For people fed up with the CTRL+F search function in IE, there’s a handy addon that acts (almost) in the same manner as the Firefox find bar.

It’s now on version 1.3, which has resolved some tiny bugs that used to get me wound up.

It doesn’t integrate as nicely into IE7 as I would have hoped (visually, that is). But it is a vast improvement over the standard Find dialog box.

If you want a quick way to find content in webpages, this is the bad boy.

IE6 and IE7 Running on a Single Machine

IEBlog : IE6 and IE7 Running on a Single Machine
I know that this is indeed old news, but I thought it’s worth of a mention for my collegues.

There is a free Virtual PC image of Windows XP SP2 with IE6 installed. This is for developers who would like to use IE6 and IE7 side by side.

It times out on 1st April 2007, but there will be another available at the time.

I’m not fantastically keen on having to keep a virtual machine running just for IE6, but at least the IE team have gone to the trouble of keeping the weight of the system to a minimum by stopping unnecessary services.
