I have that, but it doesn't block HTML5 so I got TubeStop.  But that doesn't block everything, either.  Just absolutely fscking annoying that web designers assume things about their viewers.

Amazing just how long its taken Microsoft to realise that it will be browsers that dominate the computer industry in the future and not the OS. And seriously they are so out of touch its like watching old people trying to look hip and cool with young kids. Not sure where Microsoft are heading. I struggle with Windows 7 every day and spend most of the time cursing how crap it is. But hey... nothings changes. MS is and always will be crap. Basically cus they are not inovative and creative, they are simply absorbing good ideas without a clue why.... Saying that Google are fast coming up on the 'crapometer' rails and their dominance is now starting to make them make the same mistakes as MS. ... As soon as something becomes intrusive and blatently biased toward the paying subscribers you start to realise that the creators are not really on your side... They treat you as a pawn to be played. And it feels like that of late.... And given they are so mated to YouTube and the like with all the Google account crap its only time again before someone cries 'internet license' and one of these nobs will be so powerful they will control the way we use the internet. Hope I'm long gone by then.

Don't pay attention to Transition. He doesn't know how to use modern computers. He's stuck in the 80's!

Active Desktop was introduced in 1997. It wasn't terribly popular at the time, and as you know, Microsoft was forced to separate Internet Explorer from the shell after the antitrust lawsuit. The antitrust restrictions were lifted last year. I'd say Microsoft was well ahead of the curve on this one; however, it's difficult to introduce disruptive change when you're enjoined from it.

EDIT: And why so struggly with Windows 7? Under the hood, it's still just Windows NT. I quite like the Windows 7 shell.
