* Browsing in SP2

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft have a review of WinXP SP2's improvements to Internet Explorer. Yes, I know half of you guys visiting here are using Firefox/Mozilla, but it's still worth a read.

They found the SP2 improvements to be surprisingly good.

Before Service Pack 2, Internet Explorer posed one of the biggest security risks in Windows XP. Critical update patches were frequently being released to fix it, but internet Explorer simply had too many security holes. Now Service Pack 2 (SP2) brings a new level of security to internet Explorer, as well as dealing with those irritating pop-up windows and advertisments. In this step-by-step guide you'll learn about Internet Explorer?s new security features, the Pop-up blocker, the all-important Add-on Manager and updated file-download feature.

Pop-up windows are undeniably annoying. SP2 improves Internet Explorer (IE) to such an extent that the chance of you becoming frustrated by the appearance of unwanted windows is all but eliminated. In this example I?ve directed my web browser to a special web site designed to test the effectiveness of pop-up-blocking applications. You can try it out for yourself at Pop-up Tester
