IE Surfgear 1.1
IE Surfgear is a simple Internet Explorer add-on. It helps to wrestle some wide-spread design problems making web pages difficult to read: too small fonts, objectionable colors, background images. Now, you can remove them in a single click.
It looks like web design became a kind of web disease now. Every web master does his best for his site to look bright, cool, amazing and so on. Unfortunately, too many of them forget that the main value of Internet is information. But design itself usually contains no information; it is no more than a pleasant add-on. However, too many web designers don't realize it. Too often, surfing the Web, we encounter web sites, which cool and amazing design features make text on that site almost unreadable. And just text usually contains most information. In such case web design becomes a problem for site visitors.
