IE Update to Disable "Click to Activate"

This is a preview of the update that will be available in April 2008.

If you don't recall, in April 2006, we made a change to how Internet Explorer handled embedded controls used on some webpages. Some sites required users to "click to activate" before they could interact with the control. Microsoft has now licensed the technologies from Eolas Technologies inc, removing the "click to activate" requirement in Internet Explorer.
"This change will require no modifications to existing pages, and no new actions for developers creating new pages," LePage said in a post to Microsoft's IE blog. "We are simply reverting to the old behavior. Once Internet Explorer is updated, all pages that currently require 'click to activate' will no longer require the control to be activated. They'll just work."
