    Hi,

    I'm not a fan of IE, but I'm a fan of MyIE2, and since MyIE2 use the kernel of IE I'm worry because of the security imperfections, features lacks, a long time without improvement, etc... And I want to know if the developers of Microsoft already started to improve the IE, or when they will start, or if they will start on day...?

    Thanks

    In the next Service Pack 2 for Windows XP you will get a pop-up blocker and a download manager.
    At the moment we only now that for other new features we will have to wait till Longhorn.

    What? They removed the download manager? That really sucks.

    Hello, Download Manager and Pop-up Blocker are in the premium msn browser.

    I wonder if the premium msn browser has the same security exploits as the regular IE browser?

    Does anyone know?

    They have already started working on security and should greatly improve it in Longhorn.

    Last I heard, MSN Explorer uses IE's Engine.
