Eolas Lets Microsoft Fix ActiveX Headache

Last year, Microsoft was forced to add one of the worst features ever to IE because of the Eolas patent dispute. Well, now that Microsoft has settled that dispute, they're taking the feature completely out of the product, according to a post from the IE blog.

I really glad that cooler heads prevailed on this one. That feature made web pages far less usable, and was just an all around PITA. Come Vista SP1 or the April 2008 Cumulative Update, we can finally begin conserving mouse clicks, one of our most important natural resources.
