Introducing the Bayden IEToys
IE is a powerful web browsing environment, and with a few simple
power-ups, it's even better. You can add functionality to IE6/7/8 with these tiny tools that take up almost no disk space,
and won't slow down or destabilize IE.
Free of charge and free of spyware.
You must restart IE after installing to see the toys.
Webpage reading tool
You're trying to read a website, but you can barely concentrate
because the page is full of unneeded images. Simply
right-click the page and choose "Delete Images" to zap non-text page
For instance, in one-click, you can cleanup Bayden's homepage:
Web-based dictionary tool
You're reading a website, and you come across a word whose definition you've
forgotten long ago. What to do? Grab a paper dictionary? Maybe last century. Simply
select a word, right-click, and click Define. The definition will pop up in a window of its own.
Web-based encyclopedia tool
Like the Dictionary tool, this one looks up the selected text in WikiPedia.
HTML source instantly
View the HTML sourcecode for the currently selected
portion of the web page.
Select some page content
Choose "HTML Source"
IE7 Clear Tracks
This IE7 toolbar button deletes all browsing history, cookies, cache
files, etc in just one
Easy to use image collection tool
Need to copy an image, but right-click is broken?
Right click in the page (not on the image).
Choose "Image List".
Click on the image to Copy.
The screen flashes green as the image is copied.
Right-click in your document or desktop and click "Paste".
Select some text, right-click, and click Highlight to
highlight the text.
Some webpages contain malformed Internet addresses which
aren't in hyperlink form, forcing you to copy the address, paste it in
the addressbar, and fix any typos. Linkify solves this problem by
opening the currently selected text as a hyperlink. If the HTTP://
at the front of the link is broken (as is done on some web bulletin
boards) linkify will fix it. If you select multiple addresses, one
per line, a new window will be opened per address.
Select some text, right-click and search for the selected text on MSN.
Select some text, right-click and search for the
selected text on Google.
Faster performance for broadband users
This optional tweak can speed up downloads when you have
a broadband internet connection. Specifically, IE will download up
to 16 files simultaneously from a server, instead of the default maximum
of 2 or 4. Use for dialup connections is not recommended.
Note: This feature does not add any buttons or menu items-- IE will just
download more quickly.
HTML Accessibility helper
Some webpages define hotkeys to allow you to more easily
navigate the page. Unfortunately, the hotkeys are rarely mentioned
anywhere, and you probably don't know they exist. This simple
little tool scans the current page and displays any available AccessKeys.
v1.1.8 - 2/9/2006. Rev'd ClearTracks and ProxyPick
