Editors' Review

IE7 Pro adds a lot of showmanship to the Internet Explorer browser. The freeware add-on has some smart solutions for tabbing, including default settings to open URLs in new tabs and let double-clicking close a tab down.

Here's another pleasant surprise: "dragging" and "dropping" an in-text link into white space opens the link in a new tabs without any mouse work. IE7Pro also borrows from several software concepts to help raise IE7's appeal, including Firefox's, to save and fill forms, and insert user scripts a la Greasemonkey. The MiniDM download manager adds a long-missing tool to IE's options, and the pre-fetching options makes IE much lighter on its feet.

The list of added features is long, but they're all accessible from a status bar icon that the program installs for you. Right-click on it to get access to mouse gestures, customizable hotkeys, and more. Highly recommended.

"Won't install!"

March 27, 2009  |  By Ten6Niner

 |  Version: IE7Pro 2.4.5

Pros

It has a great description on CNET.

Cons

It doesn't actually load on my system.

Summary

I've tried to install twice. The folder for the program doesn't even show up in "program files." Have tried to restart IE, restart system, etc. It's just not there!

"Works in IE8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

June 07, 2009  |  By TheDarkClown

 |  Version: IE7Pro 2.4.5

Pros

Just finished successfully installing IE7 Pro in IE8 (running under Windows 7 RC), and it's made the transition a lot easier. I can find everything I need, and MiniDM (my favorite feature) works brilliantly!

Cons

Many features you may not need or want are switched on as default.

Summary

You may need to take a few mins to set it up the way you'd prefer, but that should be done for anything like this if you want to get the best out of it.
So, feel free to upgrade to IE8 knowing that you can still install IE7 Pro.

"Finally catching up..."

May 24, 2009  |  By OldeFart

 |  Version: IE7Pro 2.4.5

Pros

Just installed and haven't really tinkered but what I have done has impressed me.

Cons

Unlike opera (quick access) once you click-on then you have to manually click the appearing tab to actually access it.. I also have an IE7prosetup_2.4.5_5_ADDON File
that I can't open or determine just what it is (can anyone help?)

Summary

Nothing that opera doesn't have but I was thoroughly surprised (and delighted) that windows actually came up with it.. It's drabness since conception has always been a bane as the competition continued to experiment, grow and improve. Now it should be windows turn (so long as they keep experimenting).. I like this side of them and will use IE7 more than in the past. Had no problem installing on IE7.

"My favorite favorite... which is dead now."

May 19, 2009  |  By FleetCommand

 |  Version: IE7Pro 2.4.5

Pros

It is established beyond all doubt that Internet Explorer 7 will be a far better application for consumers with this program.

Cons

Practically does not work with Internet Explorer 8. While Internet Explorer 8 now offers part of its functionalities, the other part is now broken and does not work under Internet Explorer 8.

Summary

Without doubt, Internet Explorer is the best Internet experience tool for Business environments but does not have a Consumers edition, thus making this tool, IE7Pro, essential for home users. However, with it being broken and not working under IE8, consumers have no choice but to choose the only remaining option: Firefox, the best consumers web browser ever. (Note that Firefox doesn't have a Business edition.)

"One word for Firefox, "CATCH UP!!!!!!!!!!", lol."

May 12, 2009  |  By sheba94601

 |  Version: IE7Pro 2.4.5

Pros

While Firefox has gotten even sloWERr than turtle-slow, IE7 has gotten lightning fast. Even w/ IE7Pro added on, nothing weighs it down..and IE7Pro is an all-in-one add on w/ so many gr8 features

Cons

Well now IE8 is out many hate to let go of IE7Pro, so thousands of us r patiently waiting w/ high hopes an IE8Pro comes out!

Summary

This was an all-in-one add on for IE7 that includes many handy features! My main browser is IE7 but I keep firefox installed in case of an emergency. Lets keep it real here, the only thing Firefox has going for itself is all the wonderful working add ons and hot interface changes firefox allows ppl to create for those less creative, but firefox is getting sLoWERrr than it ever was. IE7Pro doesnt weigh the browser down and IE7 still opens lightning faaast w/ or w/ out this gr8 add-on

"The one MUST HAVE utility for IE"

May 11, 2009  |  By pugboy75

 |  Version: IE7Pro 2.4.5

Pros

Makes IE an almost bearable browser.

Cons

There are things that many people won't use that are on by default. One I can think of right away is Mouse Gestures. Developers have been pushing this concept for over 10 years in browsers, but it should install "off" and let the user pick decide.

Summary

Once you have IE7Pro installed for a while, you will never go back to the "naked" version that ships from M$. My two fav features are the auto-tab-session saving (a la Firefox) and the quick access to increasing the number of concurrent server connections in IE, which defaults to 2. For heavy users, this a must tweak and you won't need a separate tool for it. Lastly, it has never crashed - not once. Well written code. Actually, better than most of the amateur plug-in's for Firefox.

"A must have add-on for IE!!"

May 04, 2009  |  By bradspace

 |  Version: IE7Pro 2.4.5

Pros

All the features of Firefox built into one add-on.

Cons

Nothing so far.

Summary

I would rather use Firefox, but bue to firewall issues here in the office, IE is the best way to go. This makes using IE more like my FF experience.

"Works just like ad block for FF."

April 27, 2009  |  By bobbyphoenix

 |  Version: IE7Pro 2.4.5

Pros

Great Ad blocker. FREE. I always test these things on web pages I know have a lot of ads prior to installing. I take a screen shot, and then install, and check again. It blocked every single ad.

Cons

None. Works like it should.

Summary

I am using it on Vista with IE8, and XP with IE8. Work perfectly. After you install it you need to restart the browser, and then check the Ad Blocker box, and then restart again, and presto no more adds anywhere! NOTE: If using IE8 after installing a new IE window opens, and tells you to click the orb in the status bar for options, but in IE8 it's not there. You need to find the IE7pro Preferences tool located by the tools menu on the menu bar. (where you would check for windows updates).
