What's up with IE 7 and 8? Does this apply for those too or has the process changed?

Ok I wrote up a patch, it keeps the IE6 section and adds a new section for IE7/8. Its very similar though, its located in a different place and one button is renamed.

Shane, thanks for the patch. There are a couple of adjustments that needed to be made. First, you used the spelling "favourites", but we need to use American style English spelling, which would be "favorites". Also, there were two typos which said "will will" which I fixed. Fix committed to revision 376.
