So in the last week several machines at work had some serious issues as a result of Windows updates going bad, and our IT monkey has concluded it’s because of people using Firefox, and MS updates conflicting with FF. Yeah whatever.
So now we have to use IE. I downloaded it yesterday - 16mb file, installed no problem. Today Windows is downloading an 8mb patch/update for it. Marvellous. But how can I make the overall experience less sucky? For example, when I mouseover threads now, I’ve got 2-3 seconds in which to read the pop-up - and moving the mouse back over it doesn’t bring it up, I have to mouseover a different thread, and then go back. WTF.
Please help me make IE suck less. What can I customize? How do I stop it running scripts on every page (I had the noscript add-on in FF)?
Curses upon the IT monkey, curses.
