Topic starter
 

..... is out.

Start > All Programs > Windows Update (top left somewhere).

I know a lot here don't use IE but, I thought I'd throw it out here anyway. It's pretty cool. It's set up more like Netscape (IIRC) in regards to the tabs for different pages. I used to have a bunch of IE's open, now I have one open with multiples open with-in the one.

It's got phishing filters and a couple of other new things. The look is a little tighter. It seems stable enough, been running it for two days without any issues.

Just thought I'd pass the info along.

I've had IE 7 on my pc at work for a couple of weeks now. I like it, but I still like Netscape better, just personal preference I guess. I do like that Microsoft went to the tabbed browsing though. IE 7 is very 'streamlined" and a nice upgrade.

I wish i could have installed IE7 on my PC, but i guess it works only on XP.Win 98 is now most hated by Microsoft itself...

Big ol' Firefox fan here. I onlyhave IE installed on this comp. bc some apps require it be there, but I never use it. My wife LOVES the new IE 7 though, except when it won't open her gmail page! HA-HA!

Firefox works great for me, and is so much more secure.

For the stuff that "requires" IE, look at getting the IETab extension. It allows you to open up the IE rendering engine inside a Firefox tab. Helps keep my task bar free of the IE clutter, even though I do realize I'm still using IE.

The name itself is reason enough.
