Where to find addons for IE?

I came across ieaddons.com via the IE team’s official blog and till then had not heard of it. I have been using IE 7 Beta 3, and despite my original issues with it, I do seem to like it – Firefox is still my primary browser though. Speaking of IE, there are a  few things that I do like which I wish is going to be in Firefox. One of them, when opening a new tab it open right next to the active one, instead of opening all the way in the end – which helps a lot when doing the research. Also I like the clean and smaller look of the toolbar – giving me more real estate for the web pages. One of the things I don’t like though is the Find functionality in a page. I don’t like the window which shows up, I personally prefer the way Firefox does it at the bottom of the page and finding as I type and also the option to highlight all the words on the page.

A coupe of things to point out about ieaddons – that is owned by Microsoft and I have not downloaded anything from there. I do see a lot of add ons that one needs to pay for – many of which are already free in Firefox, so I am not quite convinced on how effective it is.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
