Anyone know a way to get ie to actually cancel loading a page when you
don't want it to load?

I end up smashing the esc key 50-100 times, and instead end up waiting
for the startup page to load, just so I can go to a different page.

Sometimes it will work and the 'navigation cancels', but usually it
tries to load the start page.

All I see is redundancy and repetitiveness in the subject line.

I do this a few different ways, in no particular order:
Firefox
Chromium
Chrome
Safari
Konqueror

The inability to cancel what it loads is a huge pet peeve of crappy
software, and I would not be surprised if the only reason it worked that
way is because the default homepage is their site.

So my response to ab's comment is...

I agree wholeheartedly, but unfortunately we have some software that
does not work well in anything but ie............sigh

That works, until you have to open it back up to *get* to the page you
need, and start the process all over again. ;-)

Downhill is generally easier than uphill, I find. :)
