Microsoft Adds Selective ActiveX Filtering to IE9

Internet Explorer

An anonymous reader writes “A post on the IE blog details the new ActiveX filtering feature in the IE9 release candidate. Microsoft’s Herman Ng writes, ‘ActiveX Filtering in the IE9 Release Candidate gives you greater control over how Web pages run on your PC. With ActiveX Filtering, you can turn off ActiveX controls for all Web sites and then turn them back on selectively as you see fit. While ActiveX controls like Adobe Flash are important for Web experiences today for videos and more, some consumers may want to limit how they run for security, performance, or other reasons.’ My favorite quote from the article is one of the image captions: ‘ActiveX content may prevent you from having a good experience viewing a Web site’”
