Must Have Add-Ons for IE7

With your freshly installed Internet Explorer 7, take time to explore our library of add-ons. The IE Add-Ons website has over 400 add-ons registered to date, and many more are on the way. The IE7 team took the last few weeks (in between last minute bug fixes) to collect our must-have list below. All of the add-ons in our list are free to download, integrate well with IE7, and provide extraordinary functionality.

Stay Safe and Secure:  Windows Defender is a must-have for anyone concerned about spyware and other forms of malware. Windows Defender identifies and removes spyware and other potentially unwanted software installed on your computers. Automatic download of signatures keeps you up to date on the latest threats. Anyone who’s had to help their friends rebuild a PC after spyware infection will want this add-on everywhere.

Enhance the functionality of IE7: The great wealth of add-ons for IE includes a number of which add generic features to the browser.  Two of these add-ons made our must-have list. IESpell adds spell-checking and dictionary lookup to any text typed into web forms. For those who have difficulty spelling (who doesn’t?) it will save you time and again. Inline Search highlights text while-you-type searching within the current page. When you press Ctrl-F, a search bar is displayed on the bottom of the screen. IE highlights matches as you type. The inline search add-on has quickly become an integrated part of all my IE7 installations.

Share your favorite sites with friends and family: Social networking is the hallmark of “Web 2.0”. Three of the most popular social networking sites have add-ons for IE7. enables users to share links to their favorite sites, store hyperlinks in the cloud, and network with others interested in similar web sites. StumbleUpon helps users discover new web sites according to their interests. The StumbleUpon add-on always helps me find new sites. A third add-on, Trailfire, provides a truly unique new method of web navigation. By leaving “Trailmarks”, which are essentially electronic notes, on individual web pages, users can lead their Trailfire contacts on an interpretive trail for the web. These three add-ons give IE7 users entirely new ways to experience the Internet. 

Develop high-performance web applications:  For web developers, two tools are absolutely invaluable: Fiddler and the IE Developer Toolbar. Fiddler is a general purpose debugging proxy, giving developers complete control of all the HTTP traffic between your computer and the Internet. The IE Developer Toolbar enables DOM exploration and modification, viewing of DOM element details, and has built in HTML, CSS, WAI, and RSS validators. 

Enjoy Games and Entertainment: If you like to play casual online games, you will want to download the latest Shockwave. With dozens and dozens of Shockwave games on the Internet, you can enjoy both 3D and casual games, interactive training, and product demonstrations from within IE7. You should also download the latest Flash player to be up to date with stability and performance updates. The Flash player provides a compelling, expressive experience for your favorite interactive web sites.

Get quick access to your information:  Both 1-Click Answers and the Windows Live Toolbar provide quick and easy access to your information from within the browser frame. The 1-Click Answers add-on works with to provide a quick access dictionary and encyclopedia. Clicking on any word in a web page and choosing “Answers…” takes you to the latest information about that word.  Once you start using it, you won’t go back. In addition, the Windows Live toolbar’s extensive gallery of buttons provide one-click access to maps, weather, and news. With these two tools, the answer to almost any question is only one click away.

Keep up to date on news and feeds:  In the 24×7 news world, RSS helps you manage the surge of Internet news and information. The built-in support for RSS in IE7 enables web-based RSS-aggregators like Feed Demon by Newsgator and Bloglines to synchronize directly with the RSS store on your computer. When you install these add-ons, the RSS feeds you subscribe to within IE7 will automatically be made available to your web-based aggregation sites. 

Share your story: Windows Live Writer, is the one-stop shop for all your blogging needs. In fact, this post was composed using Windows Live Writer. Compose, edit, save drafts, and publish all from a WYSIWYG interface, customized to the styles of your particular blog site. It supports any blog site that exposes Really Simple Discoverability, Metaweblog API, or Moveable Type API. When you install, it adds a button to the Windows Live Toolbar to provide one-click access to your blog. Windows Live Writer makes everything difficult about blogging (adding pictures, blogging to multiple sites) extremely easy.   

The breadth of add-ons for IE7 is growing daily. Be sure to visit, to install and share your reviews of your favorites.

    On pages that show the security bar I normally do not activate the content. But if I start filling in a form on a page, then realize it needs javascript to run validation, I enable it.  But the problem is, as soon as I enable it, Explorer loses all of the data I entered!

    Is there not a better way to handle this?

  2. Me says:

    Hmmm.  IE Addons still thinks IE7 is in beta.

  3. Lance Roberts says:

    How do I get the "Your current security settings put your computer at risk.  Click here to change your security settings." bar to not appear on every page.

    Also, how do I get the browser to not come up with a warning page.

    Without changing the security settings?

    I tried both email and phone and got no help.

  4. David Naylor says:


    – Half the stuff listed is paid stuff.

    – They have a whole page of popup blockers, even though IE7 supposedly includes one. (And half of these cost money, too… $30 for a popup blocker anyone?)

    – A whole page of form-fillers… shareware, naturally πŸ™‚

    – Another page, this time with bookmark managers

    – Etc etc

    Quite a different scene compared to AMO…

  5. mo says:

    Hi, I upgraded from IE6 to IE7 today (I’m running XP SP2) and I consistently have the following issue: after selecting to delete my browser history, no files are deleted (inc. cookies)!

    Example Repro Steps

    [1] Open IE7

    [2] Navigate to Yahoo!, sign in with a valid user

    [3] Navigate to several web pages

    [4] Select ‘Tools’, ‘Delete Browsing History…’, ‘Delete all…’, ‘Yes’

    [5] Close & reopen IE7 (this step not necessary, but for completeness)

    [6] Navigate to Yahoo!

    [7] Expected result = not logged into Yahoo!

    [8] Actual result = still logged into Yahoo! with previously entered user details

    [9] Navigate to folder where temporary internet files are stored, folder is full of previous browsing history.

    Thus far, the *only* way I have successfully deleted any browser history is to manually delete the files. I find this behaviour very disturbing. Anyone else experiencing this? MS guys, can you provide info as to why this is happening? Thanks!

  6. kitboye17 says:

    would be nice to be able to move the tabs to the bottom of the page like excel or even the side of the page – think about it – more customization – it makes sense!

  7. funtomas says:

    best add-on is maxthon

  8. Linxinglu says:

    Why IE 7.0 on URL bar not "GO" button?! very bad!!!

  9. Jack says:

    Linxinglu: there is. When you type something in the address bar, the refresh button becomes the go button.

  10. hAl says:

    Windows live writer is definitly a nice tool for blogging !!

  11. hAl says:

    @David Nayler

    I guess the lack of quality content is why they created the contest of creating better add-on’s.

    A creative mind who can scratch some of the best extention functions from FF and combine with some nice new things might do well in such a contest.

  12. Eric F says:

    What IE7 needs, either built-in, or as an add on is the ability to put folders on your link bar and have them open all the contained webpages as tabs with one click.  I realize you can do this by opening the favorites folder, right clicking a folder, and hitting "Open in Tabs" or the right arrow icon.  However, that’s 3 clicks versus the single click I can take to perform this action in Firefox by simply having the folder on my link bar.

  13. EricLaw [MSFT] says:

    @Lance: The security warning message is there to warn you about settings configured to put your computer at serious risk.  There is no mechanism to disable this warning.

    @harvey: What security information bar are you seeing, and on what site are you seeing it?

  14. dr.happy says:

    One of the most interesting aspects of the IE vs. Firefox battle is the development of the ecosystem of extensions or add-ons. It’s not just about bugs and features. Right now Firefox had a great advantage in this space but you can see Microsoft trying to catch up.

    Microsoft has an interesting partner in Trailfire, a recommended download for IE7. See link:

    But this extension is also available for Firefox. See link:

    I think the ecosystem in add-ons for Firefox and IE will decide who wins this battle. What do you think?

  15. Lance Roberts says:

    Wow, a useless security warning that can’t be disabled.  Guess I’ll go back to the old browsers.

  16. EricLaw [MSFT] says:

    @Lance: I’m curious to learn about what scenario you’re trying to achieve here?  Is there a particular security setting that you need to have at an insecure value on a regular basis?  Thanks!

  17. Pinto says:

    Not to be overly blunt or anything, but I’d rather see more focus on supporting developers (html, DOM standards support, etc) and less focus on add-ons.  

    It’s nice that folks are writing add-ons in an attempt to duplicate FF features missing in IE (spell check, inline find, etc), but there’s no add-on for W3C support.

    The sad fact is that any user with the knowledge and rights (in the case of a corporate setting) to install IE add-ons would be better served by FF.

    Snarkiness aside though, if anyone’s looking for a challenge, an IE version of Firebug would be great.  Even with VS, client-side debugging in IE is no fun for anyone.

    I don’t want to come across as overly critical, but surely it’s at some level a concern that IE has lost so much web developer mindshare?

  18. David says:

    With IE6 I could fit everything in one thin tool bar, even the Google toolbar would fit. IE7 takes up 3 and hogs the page.

    The top toolbar is waste of space with it’s massive address bar and embedded SE… it’s an obvious attempt for Microsoft to pawn their SE to the masses.

    I don’t need IE7’s embedded search, the Google toolbar does much more.

    And I like how I could compact IE6 to ONE slim bar.

    More is not better… just look at Google’s page.

    Classic MS bloatware.

  19. EricLaw [MSFT] says:

    David: I’m a toolbar minimalist myself (I prefer a thin type-in command line for most tasks) but IE7’s UI is actually quite powerful once you get used to it.  If you’d like, there’s various tweaks you can do to customize to taste.  See

  20. Benjamin Hawkes-Lewis says:

    Note: I’ve got a lot of links here, so in an attempt to prevent my post being chewed on for a few days by the IEBlog spam guard-dog, I’ve traded usability for relevance stripped off the scheme from the beginning of URLs. Many apologies for the inconvenience. Even more apologies if this crude plan of mine fails, and I just end up feeding that salivating Cerberus anyhow.

    @David: "The top toolbar is waste of space with it’s massive address bar and embedded SE… it’s an obvious attempt for Microsoft to pawn their SE to the masses."

    On first run, IE7 gives you the opportunity to add more search engines and change your default (you can point and click all the way to Google). So I don’t see what’s wrong with making Microsoft’s engine the default. And a search engine menu is good for those who prefer a GUI dropdown to keyword-based search in the address bar.

    @Pinto: I largely second that. We desperately need to improve IE’s core functionality. Notwithstanding the courageous and often under-appreciated efforts of the IE team, IE7 still lags a long way behind where a modern web browser should be. And unless Microsoft commits to implementing web standards right across the organization (have you seen the (so-called) "XHTML" for Windows Live?) and throws more "platform resources" ( ) at the problem, I don’t see how the IE team can get it there any time soon. Even when they do, they are still going to be a lot of people running IE7.

    Now one might argue one should just tell people to download a different browser, but in practice that’s a lot to ask of ordinary end-users who are phased by the slightest difference in UI. It’s also a lot to ask of corporations, who are conservative and may wish to use proprietary technologies that link the browser to OS-specific functionality, like XAML, on their intranets. And moreover it’s a plea that hasn’t worked (well enough) so far: , , and .

    So other than keeping on encouraging (and where necessary correcting) the IE Team, a complementary option would be to fix IE ourselves with add-ons. In order of importance (from my point of view, of course), we could:

    (1) Expose the DOM via MSAA for efficient use by screen readers, like Gecko does: .

    (2) Add support for missing CSS 2.1 like content, quotes, and display: table-cell.

    (3) Report content validation errors via an icon in the status bar, rather than just silently correcting such errors. See for the principle of the thing, and , , and for existing implementations.

    (4) Clear up remaining bugs in IE’s HTML rendering (for example, by adding default quotation punctuation for Q: )

    (5) Parse and render application/xhtml+xml. MSXML is useless for this job, as it can’t parse XHTML 1.1 properly (see ). Perhaps we could adapt Flying Saucer ( ), or even WebKit (which was briefly brought to Windows by Swift) or Gecko ( ). However, I suspect it would be better to begin with a proper XML parser like Expat: . That would provide the most leeway for expansion (remember XHTML 2.0 is on the distant horizon).

    (6) Fix IE’s deceptive HTTP headers. The Accept header needs to express a preference for HTML over XHTML where appropriate; the Accept-Language header needs to express an acceptance of content in different dialects or other languages when content is not available in the dialect of choice (for example, fr and en-gb as well an en-us).

    (7) Parse and render Web Forms 2.0. Magic man Dean Edwards is already on the case, but I believe he’s using JS and HTC not an add-on: .

    (8) Perhaps integrate Mozilla SpiderMonkey for better JavaScript support? If ELinks and Edbrowse can do it, why not IE?

    Now the ideal thing would be to have such projects co-ordinated under a single umbrella, so that end-users could download all these fixes in one go; perhaps we could even persuade Google and Yahoo to add it to their toolbars? A tweak to the User-Agent string would let web servers know that IE was geared up and ready for today’s web.

  21. Sven Groot says:

    Just a little advertisement:

    My own "find as you type" add-on is an alternative way to get interactive search in IE:

    It’s free and it’s open source (BSD license).

  22. Benjamin Hawkes-Lewis says:

    Four more add-on ideas:

    (1) A way to report bugs in IE to a central bugzilla that is perpetually available to developers (Microsoft have closed down to their Feedback site at the key moment of deployment, albeit temporarily.) In theory I suppose such a bugzilla could even automate submission to whatever replaces the Feedback site.

    (2) An extension for Firefox I’ve got on the backburner is a context menu option that allows you to bookmark or copy the link to fragment identifiers (id or name). It looks for the most relevant fragment identifier (searching up the page for the nearest heading for example). This is especially handy when dealing with lengthy webpages (e.g. legal documents, critical editions, technical specifications).

    (3) XSLT transformations for web page accessiblity (as used by Emacspeak).

    (4) The ability to switch user stylesheets on and off.

  23. milo says:

    Less is better, as David said, the top toolbar is a waste, even netscape allows you to minimize the top toolbar header.

  24. EricLaw [MSFT] says:

    @Benjamin Hawkes-Lewis: I’m not sure I understand your complaint about the Accept-Language header? IE already permits the user full-control of the Accept-Language header via the Languages button in the Internet Control Panel.

  25. TitaniumCranium says:

    David and Milo

    In IE7 the F11 works much better for full screen support. It eliminates the Title bar and shortly after the Menu Bars will rollup. Then you can run your mouse to the top of the screen to get the Menu Bar to pop up again.

    For those that like to use their own security settings; I haven’t figured out how deactivate the "Your current settings put your computer at risk…" garbage but I have figured out how to get it to go to the home screen with the annoying security message.

    Open regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain and find the entry "Security Risk Page". Rename the entry "Security Risk Page" to "~Security Risk Page" and exit regedit. The next time you open IE7 it will bypass the message and go directly to your home site.

  27. Benjamin Hawkes-Lewis says:

    Just to clarify suggestion (4) in my previous post: IE7 technically already allows you to apply or unapply a user stylesheet. But unlike Opera, it doesn’t make this option trivially accessible so that you can change it easily as you surf around.

    IE7 works like this:

    Select "Tools", select "Internet Options", select "Accessibility", tick or clear "Format documents using my stylesheet".

    But Opera 9.02 works like this:

    First configure Opera like so: select "View", select "Style", select "Manage modes", and clear "My style sheet" under "Author mode".

    From now on, select "View", select "Style", and select "User mode", to toggle your stylesheet on and off. Or, better yet, just press SHIFT + G (on Windows) to toggle user mode on and off. Can’t get easier than that. (Incidentally, dig into Opera help for your shortcuts, don’t trust: as it’s out of date.).

    It would also be nice to have some default stylesheets to apply (again, like Opera), rather than requiring low-vision or blind users to know CSS, still less IE’s remaining CSS deficiencies.

    @EricLaw: The problem is not primarily with the Language Preferences dialog. That seems to work, even if it relies on users knowing the difference between "en", "en-gb", and "*", and even if I find this warning cryptic: "Only add the ones you need, as some characters can be used to impersonate websites in other languages." The problem is that most users are not going to go and customize the default (for example, "en-gb"), and I believe the default is unsuitable, for reasons I put forward in the comments to your own post entitled "Accept-Language Header for Internet Explorer 7"

    I made the same explanation in the comments to an Accept-Language bug, to which I’d refer you also if the bug tracker hadn’t been closed. πŸ™

    What could an add-on do about this? First, it could add options for generic languages ("en", "fr", and so on) and all languages ("*") to the Language Preferences dialogue. Second, after obtaining the user’s explicit consent, it could modify the default to include generic languages and all languages, so users end up with a sensible header like "en-gb,en;q=0.7,fr-fr;q=0.6,fr,q=0.4,*;q=0.3". Finally, it could mark its own presence in the User-Agent header, so that webmasters could know that no special rules were required to interpret the Accept-Language header.

    Googling around, I see the cryptic warning in Language Preferences is related to phishing fears:

    "[The status bar may indicate that the] web address (or URL) contains characters that cannot be displayed in your current language. To install another language, click the Information bar and then click Change language settings. Be cautious when installing additional languages. Some letters and symbols can be used to mimic characters in other languages, though the website address is different. This ability can be used to impersonate another website for the purpose of identity theft or fraud. Because of this, you should only add a language you are familiar with."

    ( )

    It seems to me that rather than (claiming to) reject content in anything other than the user’s local dialect, IE7 could have implemented two sets of language preferences: one for content and one for the display of the URI. Indeed, perhaps that fundamental separation is another task for the add-on?

  28. William T. says:

    I am not sure if this is the correct forum, however is there an "add-on" which will allow me to go to an e-mail link?

    E7 comes up with an error saying that "x" or whatever is not a path or doesn’t exist.

    I would like some of these to work since I am looking for a job.

    Should I just go be to IE6?



  29. EuGeNe says:

    A more recent version of Inline Search is available on

  30. Benjamin Hawkes-Lewis says:

    @william T.: Normally, I’d direct you to file a bug, but Microsoft have closed down the bug tracker for the moment. In any case, whenever reporting any problem connected with a web browser, you should try and provide link/URL to a web page where you experience the problem. As it happens, it is trivial to verify that ordinary mailto anchors work fine in IE7 so there probably is something wrong with the page you tried or with your email client setup. Perhaps you could give us a link and also let us know if it works okay in other browsers like Firefox and Opera?

  31. I cannot believe IE still has a problem I cannot live with.

    I had wrote a long story in a text field in a wiki web site.

    Then I managed to click back, I do not know how, maybe a backspace with the wrong focus.

    Poof! All the text is gone. I think I would have switched back. Hmm not now.

    Dougiefresh’s response: Clearing browsing history will not remove Temporary Internet Files, nor Cookies.  Try clearing the Cookies, not the browser history.  Then you won’t be logged in anymore until you do so again.

    Out of interest now that IE7 is out, is the final version of the developer toolbar (currently still beta 2) going to appear?

  37. Bert says:

    @ dracks

    > How about a ‘refresh every’ tool like Opera > has. It’s very useful when monitoring forums > etc.

    Right click on any tab and click "Refresh All"

  38. dracks says:

    What I meant by ‘refresh every’ is that it will refresh the pages automatically every x minutes depending on what has been set. Why can’t IE7 have this function.

  39. Joe says:

    My #1 missing add-on:

    CSS Support!

    Where can I find it? Is there a plug-in somewhere? Maybe CSS support is an ActiveX control.

    IE is driving me crazy. How about min-width and proper padding and margins around elements?


    Hey MS, you’re losing me as a customer. Your licensing agreement for Vista is terrible. One more to new hardware for a retail copy. How about going after pirates instead of treating your paying customers like their criminals. Boo. Hiss.

    I hate IE.

  40. Grant says:

    Can someone help me ?  I am pretty frustrated that there is no Sidebar feature in IE7 … I have yet to find a way to load mini pages on the side like Firefox allows me to do … I am surprised that Microsoft did not implement such a solution in IE7 … Firefox Sidebar is quite a nice option … no installations are required and no need to develop per browser … can any one answer what is the Firefox Sidebar equivalence in IE7 so I can quit telling my clients to only use Firefox ???

  41. Jerry says:

    Now if only Developer Toolbar supported LUA. Running under an administrator account just to write code seems like an overkill.

    yes the best addon you can get for IE7.. is MAXTHON! .. and then get some of the plugins for that.. man you don’t know what you’re missing if you just use IE7 on its own.

    Much better Tab browsing.. man why didn’t the IE team just copy the features of it..

    and look a decent Find tool..

    IE7 should have included full ICC support. Also it should support WCS color support under Windows Vista. I read many photography websites, and sometimes converting a picture to sRGB changes it in less than desirable ways.

    IE5 for Mac supports ColorSync, why not do the same for Windows IE?

    Maybe I should write an add-on

  45. Hej folkens Faldt lige over dette post i IEbloggen – der er nogle ret interessante links til IE7 With

  46. The Internet Explorer 7 Team posted an amazing list of must-have Add-Ins for IE7 . I’m using almost all

  47. J says:

    But where is the MOST needed plugin that Firefox has – Adblock? All inline searches etc. are only nice to have features but without adblock there is really no way to go to any public site with ads.

  48. If you haven’t heard by now, IE7 for Windows XP & 2003 was released on Thursday last week! Congrats

  49. AmpLiF1eR says:

    I found "Ad Muncher" , it does the same as adblock for Firefox.

    After taking adblock for granted for years, I wanted to try IE7 and was shocked.

    All pages were full of ugly ads, I was forgotten about adblock and used to it like everyone else so  I thought: "IE7, sorry, no way!!!!"

    But then I found Ad Muncher , now the browser works ok.

    If I didn’t found this little app, I would have switched back to FF for sure.

  50. BK says:

    I’ve just been attached by spyware. Will installing IE7 help? Does it have options to turn off all add-ins?

  51. Tim says:

    Are there any FREE ad-blocking add-ons for IE7? Like others have mentioned here I’ve got so used to using AdBlock Plus in FF, that coming back to webpages with all of their ads is quite an unpleasant browsing experience.

    AdMuncher was mentioned above, but it costs $25.

  52. AmpLiF1eR says:


    Yes, Admuncher isn’t free..

    But I don’t think Microsoft will provide a free adblocker because they make a lot of money out of ads.

    So someone should write a 3rd party addon.

    I think they realize that most FF users won’t switch over because they got used to an ad-free browsing experience.

    Still they have the biggest community using IE because a lot of people simply don’t know about other browsers… they buy a PC and are happy to find the IE button to start using the web without any knowledge so I don’t think Microsoft will care about FF users ( I think)and just want you to see those ads.

  54. AdamWysokinski says:

    IE 7 is definitely a big step forward comparing to IE 6, it has, however a few minor glitches that make it usage not as comfortable as it should be:

    (1) Never ever open new windows when there is one already opened, make IE use tabs instead of new windows, that’s what are tabs for.

    (2) Add inline search, it’s such a basic functionality. And don’t add another toolbar for that, use the built in search box for that (just add inline search as another search provider).

    (3) Make the command bar movable – I’d like to have it placed right to the search box and have more space for my tabs instead.

    (4) And last, but definitely not the least – please make opening new tabs *FASTER*. Why does it take so long to open new blank tab?

  55. AdamWysokinski says:

    And once more – please, make the maximized windows keep ther maximized size. Why does the program constantly open new windows in as a normal window, instead of maximized?

  56. Tklme_Elmo says:

    Has anyone found any cool add-ons for IE7 yet? I saw some clocks and a counter that displayed how much of your PC was being used at any one time. However, I didn’t download them when I had the chance. I’m looking for cool gadgets like that. Help!
