    Of course, no surprise there. That's why extensions exist for both Firefox and Chrome (in Chromes case, much likely to the disdain of Google, who, so far, hasn't enabled blocking extensions for Chrome to work 100% completely by leaving out certain functions..don't expect that to be just an "oversight"), and, why in Opera, luckily Fanboys list works really well.

    Don't use IE and use CCleaner afterwards to purge its remnants.

    I can't help but wonder if the article is 100% correct, as a bit of manual tweaking of IE8's settings can actually provide all the features the article claims are lacking.

    They were de-automated, yes. Removed entirely? I doubt it.
