Poll Returns

Tuesday September 18th, 2001

We've got a new poll up, for your polling pleasure. It deals with the new Quick Launch feature, and we wanted to know what you think of it. If you think it's buggy, or have improvements, you can note that here, or in the poll's talkback. Poll away!

You just proved (well, not really you didn't, but I know this from before) that explorer.exe is IE. You didn't prove that IE preloads. *PRELOADS*. Everyone is saying stuff like "uninstalling IE frees 30 MB of disk space" etc. but nobody is answering the actual question: how much and how does IE preload? In other words, how much of IE is actually loaded at startup and in what form? Shared DLL's? Running, but with no visibile windows? etc.. We all know that IE totally integrated with the OS and all that. That's not the point.
