Microsoft IE Sucks

I usually defend Microsoft from most of the attacks they find themselves under, but noW I've got a burr in my saddle about them. Without thinking, I downloaded IE 7.0 yesterday. Now, every time I try and insert a hyperlink I first have to go through three clicks to allow a scripted window to run. From reading the help file, the only solution to this is to allow Active X controls to run on all websites, which am loathe to do with the other less computer literate members of my household surfing the web.

Anyone have any ideas? And, no, buy a Mac isn't what I consider a legitimate suggestion.

You're going to hate this, but Firefox is easy-peasy with that kind of blogger crud.

You've definitely warned me off upgrading IE on my system. And yeah, what Scott says -- switch to Firefox. (Unless, as at my place of employment, you are forced to use software that only works with IE.)
