Turning off automatic Phishing in IE makes IE just as fast as Firefox 3.0

This is interesting.  If I turn off the option to automatically check web sites for Phishing, IE7 is just as fast as Firefox 3.0.

So, how does Firefox 3.0 do Phishing checking quicker than IE?  Or does it do it at all anymore?

I’ll have to check into that.

Of course, turning off the Phishing filter in IE, gives Vista security fits.


In Microsoft’s IE Privacy Statement it says…

“Automatic checking of all websites by Phishing Filter is off by default.”

That’s not true.  I never explicitly turned on the Phishing Filter.  It was set to automatic by default for me.
