IE Add-ons Updated

Microsoft have refreshed the look of the IE Add-ons site and integrated the site with Windows Marketplace.

You can go there directly at ieaddons.com or from within IE7 (choose Tools->Manage Add-ons->Find More Add-ons.)

While you're there, take a look at Tony Chor's (Group Program Manager) favorite IE7 add-on, the NewsGator Desktop Synchronizer, which keeps the IE7 RSS feed list in sync with the NewsGator Online list. This lets him keep the same RSS feeds on his work and home computers as well as giving him a web UI to read feeds.

The IE chrome could do very well to emulate the UI layout. With the blue/black colors for the toolbars and address bar

and IESpell :)

Wish they would remove some of the really old addons from 2004 and previous. Most of them suck and clutter up search results.

Plus why would I pay for an addon that hasn't been updated since 2002?

I ran a search for an ad blocking add-on and most of the useful ones turned out to be paid 8)

And yet people argue that IE's add-ons are as good as FF extensions. I have not yet come across a paid Firefox extension.

Presumably that's because FF is open source, whereas I bet MS don't give out their internal tricks for free... Cost aside, maybe the IE ones they are as good as the FF ones.

Why should the licensing status of the browser have anything to do with the licensing of add-ons?
