InkSwitch 2.02


InkSwitch is a small Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000 program designed for users of Internet Explorer 4 or later. InkSwitch indicates, and allows the user to change, IE's working online/offline mode. It gives a constant indication of the current working mode, and makes it much easier to toggle offline and online modes, instead of having to go to the File menu and checking the "working offline" menu item.


Internet Explorer 5.5 SP1 has been released. Nothing's changed - Windows 2000 users are fine, Windows 9x/SE/ME users still have the online setting bug.

Internet Explorer 5.5 has been released. Has the online-setting bug been fixed? Silly question.... ;) However, Windows 2000 (regardless of whether it's IE 5.01(SP1) or 5.5) doesn't appear to be affected.

Internet Explorer 5.01 has been released. Has the online-setting bug been fixed? Erm, no. So you might still find InkSwitch 2's new Agressive Offline feature useful.
