Per user Plone inline KSS editing preference
Since Plone 3.1.5, a site manager can enable or disable globally inline editing (KSS) to all users or nobody. Enabling inline editing is fair to users ho got a fast computer and a modern browser.
Content authors in lots of organizations who have Plone powered intranets have old computers and/or cannot install a modern browser, mostly stuck with IE6, thus cannot use inline editing unless it bloats their computer.
aws.inlineuserpref provides a user control panel that let members choose if they prefer or not using inline editing, such users with decent computers and recent browser can carry on enjoying inline editing, while others with old computers and browsers cans disable inline editing.

In the Plone site
Install aws.inlineuserpref as usually either with the quick installer or the setup tool.
If you upgraded aws.inlineuserpref from a previous version, upgrades may be available. Open in ZMI the “Upgrades” tab of the “portal_setup” tool and look if upgrades are available for aws.inlineuserpref:default profile.
Default KSS preference should be “off” for any new user
I didn’t make a control panel for this. Just open the Properties tab of the portal_memberdata object of your Plone site, and uncheck the enable_inline_editing property.
