These past few months I’ve been doing a lot of research and with time I was getting more and more annoyed by subscription-only sites (experts-exchange) and catalogs of abstracts (citeseer), they provide me with nothing and clutter up my Google results.

To solve this problem I used Add-in Express for Internet Explorer to build an add-in for Internet Explorer, which would allow me to hide irrelevant sites. Just for the fun, I extended it to handle all the major search engines, trickier than I initially expected but all good clean fun.

In the spirit of the Internet, I’ve published it, you can pick up a copy here.

P.S. The products and the service at add-in-express.com are amongst the best I’ve seen in a long time, highly recommended.

  1. To be more precise, it works on IE8, but doesn’t work with Google instant search. When instant search is off, it works fine.

  2. Affine doesn’t work on IE 8

  3. Hi,

    is Affine supported on IE 8? Is it still maintainted? Will you release the code so someone else can port it to new versions of IE, new search engines?

    Thanks, Jan

  4. Great software, I hope you decide to publish it on the Internet Explorer Add-ons Gallery, to make it more widely known. Thousands of people will thank you.

    Is it going to be compatible with Internet Explorer 9?

  5. This script is AWESOME!!! I am surprised it hasn’t been downloaded a BILLION times already. I plan on adding it to my kids systems to help them block out the bad stuff, if any, missed by K9.

    Thank you SO Much for a great program.
