Internet Explorer after Slimming Diet Plan

It seems like Internet Explorer, the built-in browser of Window operating system, had gone through slimming programs! You should check out the latest in the IE7 line, the pre-release RC1. Its very slim and sexy! I mean seriously it's sexy. Though it lacks some important features, it finally has the one special feature that was stealing its popularity by other software - Tabbed Browsing!

And the interface is very cleaned up having only a few important buttons as compared to BIG size toolbars full of buttons in the previous versions. Moreover the softwares like Maxthon Browser and Avant Browser have even more buttons in toolbars than Internet Explorer 6 by default. I really like this new IE, and I'm blogging this from IE7 RC1. So far the pre-release version has not caused any problem. (If you're not an experienced computer user, refrain from installing beta or pre-release software.)

People are already suggesting some important features missing, and I voted for them. I hope they implement the suggestions in the release version. You should check this new version of IE. Seriously cool!


  1. sexy huh? wat exactly do u think sexy is?
    is it pretty?
    is it beautiful?
    is it right?

    no. sexy is kind of like a guy or girl dressing to impress if u catch my drift. no offence but honestly u should not as a christian use that word like makes people who thought of u as a christian see something different than say a girl is sexy does that refer that she has nice prety hair?NO and niether does it meen that a internet thing looks cool. please dont use that owrd like that really surprises me to hear that from some1 who calls themself a Christian.

  2. Please forgive me, dearest Anomymous commentator! As per your command, I have edited my post and removed the "owrd" (word).

  3. Update: I put back the original word in the blog post. There's nothing wrong with using the word "sexy"... it's just a word.

  4. Oh, and I'm not a Christian.

Disable auto save in JetBrains IDE software (IntelliJ IDEA, PyCharm, PhpStorm)

JetBrains provides the following IDE software:
IntelliJ IDEAPhpStormPyCharmRubyMineWebStormAppCodeCLion Google also provides Android Studio which is powered by the IntelliJ platform.

If you come from a different IDE such as Eclipse, you will be unpleasantly surprised to find that JetBrains-branded IDEs automatically save everything the moment you look away. The proponents argue that as you work on your project, you should not have to worry about saving files. But to others, this auto-save behavior which is enabled by default is a curse that catches them by surprise, and a shocking departure from the workflow they are very much used to.

You can change the behavior by altering some settings.

Stop having to click Unblock on every downloaded file

CAUTION: The blocking of downloaded files in Windows is a security and safety feature to help prevent your computer from being infected by viruses and other malware. Only disable this feature if you know what you're doing.

I had been plagued by this annoyance since the days of Windows Vista. Any downloaded file, no matter what browser I use, gets tagged as "blocked" by Windows. You can open downloaded documents even though they are blocked, but when you run a downloaded application (such as a setup file) you're presented with a "Security Warning" before you're allowed to run it. It's worse if you extract a downloaded ZIP file with the Windows' built-in ZIP management. Every extracted file is blocked by default.

Being a geek who finds unnecessary "security" prompts annoying, the first thing I do in Windows is to disable the User Account Control (UAC). But I couldn't quite figure out how to disable blocking of downloaded files until …

Group, Ungroup and Regroup disabled in Word

I was editing a Microsoft Word document which had a collection of shapes and text boxes grouped together. I wanted to modify some of the shapes, and therefore I had to ungroup them. But when I right-click the group and open the Group menu, all three options namely Group, Ungroup and Regroup are completely disabled or grayed out.I couldn’t figure out what’s wrong. This group of objects is perfectly ungroupable, and I can even select objects within the group. However, Microsoft Word 2007 is not letting me ungroup it.I searched the Internet for a solution, but did not find anything very useful. The closest I came across is this statement: “The type of Text Wrapping doesn't make any difference as long as it isn't In Line with Text.” (Link here)Anyway, I changed the text wrapping of the group of objects from ‘In line with Text’ to ‘Tight’ and viola! I could now ungroup it and edit it. The document got a bit messed up when I did so, but after I ungrouped, edited and regrouped, I cha…
