Wow. There IS ad blocking in MSIE. And it works good.

I sometimes have to use MSIE for badly programmed sites that refuse to work with any other browser. And then 2 things bother me:
1) it’s not quite as fast as the other browsers, particularly when I try to quickly browse through the history (like clicking backwards several times, it seems that MSIE wants the page to finish loading before accepting a request to move on to another page)
2) there are ads everywhere

Well, on that second point, I eventually decided to try and find a solution… and I did find it. Microsoft themselves provide us with a page to subscribe to some blocking lists: one by Abine, EasyList (one of the main lists behind AdBlock Plus), and one by PrivacyChoice. You can get them there: http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Browser/TrackingProtectionLists/Default.html.
Once installed, you can manage them in Settings → Safety → Tracking protection.

Posted in Internet, Microsoft.
