After yet another IE7 crash caused by Adobe's Flash Player I decided to have one final look for an IE Add-on that could save tab state in the event of a crash. If I couldn't find one, then IE7 was going to be replaced with Firefox as my primary browser.
Thankfully - and without too much effort - I came across IE7Pro. This usful free add-on provides crash protection as well as a host of other useful features, such as Tabbed Browsing Management, Spell Check, Inline Search, Super Drag Drop, Proxy Switcher, Mouse Gesture, Tab History Browser, Web Accelerator, User Agent Switcher, Webpage Capturer, AD Blocker, Flash Block, and Greasemonkey like User Scripts platform (feature list copied from the afore-mentiond site).
So the combination Flash Block and Crash Recovery should lessen my IE7 frustrations.
Now if I only had a more feature rich tool than TravelLog IE URL History Tool to pull out browser history...
