Here are some Ahk overrides that make IE less of a bump to get around, namely if one's main browser is Ffx. Some other stuff is thrown in as well.

#IfWinActive ahk_class IEFrame

#o::Run, inetcpl.cpl ; Internet Options

`::Send {MButton} ; middle-click the grave accent key

^Numpad0::send, ^{0} ; reset page zoom to default

^b::^+i ; open Faves like in FF

^h::^+h ; same, but for History

^k::^+t ; undo close tab
