How exactly does the IE 6.0 registry entries work, once applied?

I should clarify that some... Matt created an IE6 registry file that apparently adds a metafilter sidebar to IE6... I'm guessing as more of an autonomous bar than the MeFi sidebar that just shoves the page in the _search frame. So... my question really is... I've run the reg file, but can't figure out what to do now.

i have a feeling the answer is painfully obvious.

Go here and drag the link to your toolbar.

oh, I should take that offline.

anil wrote it, when ie 6 was first beta'd. They had a really cool tool for managing sidebar stuff. it was a bit more permanent than the sidebar bookmarklet. They seemed to scrap it from the final release, so I'll ax it.

You should see it in View/Explorer Bar/Metafilter

Yeah, sorry 'bout that. The feature got pulled, for the most part. I'm guessing we'll see some vestige of it again in a future release, and its presence won't hurt your system any until then anyway.
