I need an alternative to IE's own address bar autocomplete feature

Hi experts!

We use IE8 on 2008 R2 as a RemoteApp. When used like this, it shows a strange bug when using the autocomplete feature for web adresses which renders it unusable. (Microsoft confirmed this bug but is officially not willing to solve it until Windows 8 or whatever their next server will be named)

So I need a replacement for this feature. Does anyone know any IE addon that offers address bar autocompletion?

Using IE9 RC does not change anything. Using another browser is not an option here.

Using google chrome should resolve this issue as it has its own autocomplete and forms completion and password completion.
