Yup, but most will unknowingly just click "Recommended" which enables it.

It's even enabled at my work and is quite annoying because being in IT means you have to download a fair amount of "unsigned" executable which all get blocked and thanks to group policies, there's no way to "allow" it. Thankfully I can install and use Firefox though ;)

IE8 also has it too, just to a lesser extent. I think it only searched URLs rather than files/installers.
