Customize IE 7 Web Browser


If you have upgraded to the new Microsoft IE 7 browser you may either love or hate the way it acts. I am on the fine line of not really caring since I use FireFox for most browsing needs, but I do need to go into IE to test certain things. When I do, I am finding it more difficult to customize than the older IE versions.

After doing some reading, I found it can be done but requires a registry edit for different items. Some people may not feel comfortable doing that so has come out with a utility that will make the modifcations for you.

It allows you to modify the 3 major toolbars at the top of the browser, and it’s easy to use. If you are interested in trying it out then I suggest you check out the IE7 Tweak Utility
