    internet explorer 7 beta

    i just read about this an downloaded it. it really looks an acts better than the old drab IE. to me it's still rather slow. i'll keep it an play around on it but i still think mozilla firefox is hard to beat when it comes to speed of pages loading.

    I was disappointed with this beta version. Had a lot of new features but hung up on me several times. It is also difficult to go back to the old version if you decide that you don't like this new version.

    I liked the look of the new version and finaly tabbed browesing. It is still IE so about all it does for me is windows updates I haven't done much else with it yet. I need to install it again since reloading windows last week but just haven't gotten around to it yet. I guess that tells you how unimportant it is.

    i haven't tried to uninstall it yet but i did look in add/remove hardware an its there to uninstall. actually it seems slower than the old IE but might be cause it still has bugs....

    I found it to be too buggy myself.

    Talking Mozilla Firefox - The BEST browser ever

    Folks I'd suggest you to switch to Mozilla Firefox.
    It's much faster, configurable, reliable, skinnable, etc. etc. than IE

    And most of all it's much more secure due to the fact that all the exploits are currently written for IE in over 90% of the cases

    it's located at http://www.firefox.com

    There're tons of scinns, plugins and extensions for it

    Ciao,

    I hated the Internet Explorer seven beta 2. I switched back within 15 minutes of trying it out.

    Yeah i don't plan on touching IE too much. Anything this new beta version does isn't anything special compared to what other clients already offer. Firefox is where its at!!
