If you've been able to get through to the Microsoft server to download your copy of the latest Internet Explorer, you may have noticed a few peculiarities. I'm not going to get into many of them here (like why Apple was in the Favorites toolbar twice in the earliest version or why, once you install IE 5, your IE 4.5 becomes virtually unusable), but here are some quick tips to get the thing running like it ought.
Fonts and display
Of course, the display is just a matter of taste. But for those of use who've been designing sites with the Mac in mind, you'll make all of our lives easier by changing the settings back to the way they were in IE 4.5.
Image caching or lack thereof
1. Under Preferences, select Advanced. Under Cache, select Update Pages: Always.
2. Now empty your cache by clicking "Empty Now."
3. Finally, quit and restart Internet Explorer.
UPDATE: If you change the size of your cache or if you go back and try to use IE 4.5 on the same machine, you will need to empty the cache again the next time you launch IE 5, or thesame problem will occur. I'll update this tip as required as more problems crop up. As far as I can tell, this fixes the problem permanently. If you find otherwise, please let me know.
