The reason why I said it wouldn't be soon is because of MS's traditional timetable for bringing out a new version of IE. It was almost 2 years for IE8. Also Im sure it would be possible for the button to only appear when IE8 was installed. I'm pretty sure they will get rid of the button in IE9. Which they are working on right now.

Hopefully you are right. I just wish that they didn't created the button in the first place. Whoever suggested that needs some punishment. :think:

I would have to disagree with that. It would of been stupid to ignore all the sites that had not been updated to work with IE8 yet.

The reason why I said I was pretty sure they would get rid of the button in IE9 was because most sites should be updated by then and if they aren't then they would of had enough time to do so. Plus, the IE8 engine would have a good foot hold by then and will not require the IE7 engine any longer. There would not be any need to have a button to switch between the IE8 engine and IE9 because I believe if your site worked in IE8 then it should work just fine in IE9 as well.

As of AB 11.7 Build 45, Avant is now automatically switched to IE8 standards mode at installation. You will still need this plugin to switch back to IE7 compatibility mode..
