'The new and much-anticipated anti-phishing filter in Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 browser may slow your PC's performance when you visit some Ajax-heavy sites, according to a Microsoft developer.

The workaround for the problem is to add the affected sites to "trusted sites" and then disable IE7's anti-phishing feature in the trusted sites zone as well if necessary, Microsoft developer Junfeng Zhang said in his Microsoft Software Developers Network (MSDN) blog. Ajax-heavy sites include Windows Live Mail Beta, Yahoo Mail Beta, Google Reader, and Microsoft Outlook Web Access, he says.

Microsoft's IE7 team is looking into the possible performance problem, according to a Microsoft spokesperson. "As a policy, Microsoft does not recommend turning off the phishing filter's protection, but if customers want to customize performance on certain sites they can add sites to the trusted sites zone and turn off the phishing filter in the trusted sites zone," the spokesperson says.'
