Internet Explorer Add-ons

  Graham ® 12:02 13 Jan 2005

I've disabled some Add-ons (Tools, Manage Add-ons) and my browsing has speeded up noticeably. Is this worthy of a general recommendation?

I suppose it depends what you have disabled, the only thing I have disabled is \\\Windows Messenger that I don't use. All the resat are either pop up stoppers, Money, IE Spell etc, or security. What have you disabled it would be interesting to know if we all vary very much.

I should keep IeSpell and Adobe. Disable the rest, you can always enable them if any problems. You may notice a speed-up on this forum, I certainly did.

I will give it a go and see what happens, are you BB 512 ?

  rawprawn 13:39 13 Jan 2005

I have done as you suggested, but I can't see any real difference at the moment. I will leave the settings disabled for a while, as you know the speed on this site can vary enormously from day to day.

I have given it 24 hours, and I am not really convinced. It does seem to bo fairly quick but I get so much variation from the site itself it is difficult to say, so I will revert back for another day and see what happens.(I'm on 512) although the connection speed should not be a factor in any difference made by changing the Add in status, it should be relative.
