why did they mess up internet explorer? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • You may think that it is just IE 8, but you would be wrong.

    The IE that comes with win7 has no controll ID's for many of its elements.


    I use exturnal programs to make macros that help me do tasks that are not built in to IE. Many of them include getting the current URL. That was easy with IE8 in XP, I could get the handle of the edit / combo box useing the active win title and the controll ID. now that there is no controll ID, I cannot do that (now I use a "click and ctrl-v" method)

    Once again, why?
