I'm pretty sure he's the same idiot that was responsible for the IE9 add on gallery... where you choose your default search provider....
It uses the exact same "tiles" scheme, I hated this with IE8, IE9 and now get to hate it with Windows8.
Personally I would find another way to deal with the person responsible, impalement, to be far more appropriate.
THE problem with IE8 is that microsoft INSISTED on removing the start menu and a conventional desktop. If I could IGNORE tiles by default I could just change settings and IGNORE it and just use it like Windows7
That I could deal with, it is this forcing me to do everything their new way that pisses me off.
