    Will IE7 RTM have some way to remember my preference not to install a plugin?  I find it rather annoying when I regularly visit a website that wants to show me something in QuickTime, Flash, etc and I have to click "no" or hit 'N' several times each refresh.  I'd really appreciate a simple checkbox that says "Remember my preference" which would eliminate any future popups of said request box.

    Or remember my preference...

    ... for this session
    ... for this site
    ... for this plugin

    ?

    The first option is great to initiate this dicussion (trying not to upset the original poster), but I do LOVE the last option.

    There should be away to reset it to, in case I change my mind later on.

    How would you remember a preference for each plugin?

    ...oh yeah, by CLSID.

    Hey I don't mind.  My ultimate goal is more options and better configuration.

    And anything to make the Kiosk mode of IE to behave like what a real Koisk browser would be.

    Basically I wish to have to onscreen keyboard enabled whenever I hit anywhere keyboard is appropiate, not allowed to launch application other than those predefined, not allowed to be minimized, replace "close" with "restart brower" option unless the machine is really going down, and "do not allow settings be changed in kiosk mode", etc.

    In XP SP2 we introduced the ability to always say no to a particular publisher along with the manage add-ons dialog to give the user greater control of extensions. at that time we tried to enforce.
    There is more work being done in IE7 see this article on MSDN for details. We continue to work on this entire area and combined with Protected Mode in Vista I think IE7 is shaping up well to deliver an extremely secure browsing experience.

    Thanks

    Huh.  I guess the saying is true then:  "If it's working, you'll never notice it".  Or whatever wording you prefer Smiley
