Bring MSIE's insecurity to Firefox. Brilliant!
Not if you run vidalia

Very useful for web developers, to compare page renderings in Gecko and IE engines side by side.

I love this Firefox addon, especially since I hate IE7's interface so much.

Very useful, and very stable now as well. Not sure if they've fixed the memory leaks it used to cause, but I rarely ever use it, so it doesn't really concern me.

This tool is excellent.

My only complaints:
- Tab and address bar icon always show IE icon. A favicon should still be fetched (Firefox can be used to do this, no need for IE to), and the animation in the tab for a page loading is missing.
- IE can steal keyboard focus when a page loads, even if you're in another tab. EX: Open up google.com in one IE tab and start typing in another Firefox tab. Once google loads you'll end up typing in the Search box even though you can't see it!

I recommend the following Site Filters:
- *.xbap (Windows Presentation Foundation web programs... they run great in Firefox using IETab!)

- http://update.microsoft.com/
- http://update.windows.com/

Try not to switch tabs while you are updating, this may cause Windows Update to crash.

Windows OneCare Live installer, won't run in Firefox, same caveat as with Windows Update.

I haven't used it very much yet, since I only need an IE-based browser for work, but I already uninstalled the IE view extension in favor of this, and have begun using it for the work-related browsing I normally use Maxthon for.

If it continues to work flawlessly, Maxthon will be headed to the recycle bin.

Has worked great for me for ages....a necessity as there are still websites around that absolutely do not work in either opera or ffx due to non-compliance to standards. Remember Sliced Bread throwers, THIS IS THE ONLY REASON IE TAB EXISTS!!!!!

PS works fine in IE 7 Beta 2, and latest are great enhancements, to at least permanently hide that g-ugly IE7 hugely mousing unfriendly/inefficient interface!

On my computer this version crashes FF immediately upon launch, before the GUI even gets drawn to the screen. Hopefully when the next version comes out I can give it another 5. Even though this version doesn't work for me, I'll give it a 3 to compensate for the people who gave it a 1 just to try and flame FF.

Great extension for web developers when you need to check out that IE manages to render the page properly just 1 click ;)
