Internet Explorer 8 Considerations

Beginning with Internet Explorer 8, the AutoComplete function includes your History (recently visited sites) as well as entries from your Favorites.


Fortunately, IE-8 provides you with an option to prevent these from displaying on the AutoComplete dropdown lists.


Prior to IE-8, your only option was to turn off the AutoComplete function.


If you are not familiar with the term AutoComplete, it is the function that suggests sites as you enter text into the IE Address Bar.  It also creates a dropdown list when you click the down arrow at the right of the IE Address Bar.



Both PurgeIE 8.05 and PurgeIE Pro 4.05 support Internet Explorer 8 and Windows 7.


However, Microsoft has done an incredible job in concealing the storage area for the new implementation of History data for the AutoComplete function.


In other words, we have not yet isolated the storage area.  We will try to implement a delete function for this data when possible.
