IE 7 ProIE 7 pro Adds almost every feature you'll love (and is missing in IE but is available for Firefox). Stuff like crash recovery, ad blocking, mouse gestures, Grease Monkey Scripts, Webpage capture abilities and more. Enough Said.
Search while you typeA feature that's standard in most browsers, isn't available in IE. At least, not until you download the add-in and install it. It's called Find as you type, and it's a big help, especially when you are searching for something in a long page. I find this to be most useful after a Google search, when I know the text I searched for in Google was on the webpage, but couldn't find it.
Never ever make a speling mistake again with IE Spell! It'll work like Microsoft Word's spell checker, underlining words that are spelt wrong, so you'll never have to remember the correct spelling of a word again. Eventually, you'll forget how to spell too.. but that's ok. You won't need to, because speech recognition is going to suffice. But that's not until, IE 25, so just use IE spell for now.
If you use IE to read internet feeds, the FeedPlus add-on is going to provide a much more robust way of doing the same.
McAfee Site Advisor
Site Advisor is a great little add-on to stop yourself from visiting a malware site BEFORE you actually visit it and end up getting malware. Although IE is pretty safe, some sites out there can still harm you, so make sure you use this add-on to steer clear of the bad stuff.
