Internet Explorer Tweaker is a free program for Microsoft Windows to apply certain tweaks to Microsoft's Internet Explorer web browser.
Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 is an excellent web browser and a step in the right direction. Many experts believe that Microsoft will be able to close the gap that currently exists between Internet Explorer 8 and the other web browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox or Opera with the release of Internet Explorer 9.
Internet Explorer Tweaker is a portable software program to configure and tweak the Internet Explorer. The program displays a sidebar menu upon startup that contains links to different sections like browsing options, restrictions, security and repair. Most of the menus make use of checkboxes to change Internet Explorer settings.
IE Tweaker is an interesting program for Internet Explorer uses who would like to tweak, secure or repair their web browser. The portable nature of the program makes it ideal for inclusion for a repair tools collection. IT Tweaker is compatible with Internet Explorer 8 (probably other versions as well) and requires the Microsoft .net Framework 3.5.
The Internet Explorer software can be downloaded from the developer's (messy) website.
Update: The program website is no longer available, and the latest program version IE Tweaker 2.0 has been released for Internet Explorer 9. It may still have its uses, even if you run a newer copy of Internet Explorer on your device, but it is limited.
