IE 9 Add-Ons Ready for Business

End users love and hate browser add-ons. They add much needed functionality such as blocking pop-ups or syncing bookmarks between various PCs.

But they can also slow down performance or make the browser unstable.

Microsoft has long heard these complaints and long fought to solve the problems. Now with IE 9 the company thinks it has a pretty good grip. According to Microsoft, the 40 most popular add-ons work just fine. Some historic problematic add-ons (such as Skype) are good to go with IE 9.

And both the Yahoo and Google toolbars are also stable, Microsoft says.

Have add-ons given you angina? If so, blow off steam at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
