XlBar with IESentry is a multi-function toolbar for Internet Explorer on Windows 2000. It has an in-process firewall, Internet data logger for sent and received data and a cookie viewer. The in-process firewall monitors the Internet access of individual modules (toolbars, Active X objects, ...). IESentry will warn you when a module attempts to access the Internet. You can then choose to allow or block the access. IESentry will show you all messages sent to and received from the Internet in a formatted, easy to read, HTML document. Cookies for a web page can also be viewed in a formatted easy to read, HTML document. XlBar has an in-page advertisement hider. The advertisements are replaced with a gray background and can be made visible by right clicking. XlBar supports hot buttons to you favorite Web pages. These hot buttons can simulate tabbed browsing and allows you to have multiple home pages. XlBar can save a page as WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). IE saves the page in the state that it was initially downloaded. However, since HTML is now dynamic the state of the current page may have changed because you have manipulated it or because it changes automatically. XlBar saves the page in its current state. Furthermore, IE does not actually save some types of HTML elements such as Flash movies but just saves a URL reference to these elements leaving the saved document dependent on an external resource. XlBar saves more (but not all) types of HTML elements (including Flash movies) than IE. XlBar can also save individual Flash and GIF animations and save "unsaveable" pages. IE will not save some Web pages because they have a "do not save" attribute in their HTTP headers or HTML META tags. XlBar ignores these attributes. XlBar can also save a page as a bitmap (.bmp) image. You can then use Paint to edit/ print the image. XlBar allows you to freeze/single-step Flash/GIF animations. XlBar can also synchronize your clock to an Internet time standard.
