I tried it, and it stopped me from accessing the internet (even though I use FireFox as my main browser)

Had to use System Restore to recover my connection

Half way down!

I tried it last night and then took it off again.

The problem I had may be unique but it kept bringing up a dial up connection box for every web page element as each element loaded even though it was already connected.

Change to a different website and it did it all over again.

I checked my settings and could see nothing wrong. I thought it might be something to do with my PC's hardware ( Athlon 3200 64+, Asus board, Via Chipset, 1.25Gb memory, Geforce Graphic card and on board sound) but without knowing where to look I think I'll wait for the complete version before I try it again.

Got it on here - no problems whatsoever! It's a great improvement on IE6, but still some way behind FireFox!

phil, the connection box problem isn't unique to you and was one of the contributory factors to my removing it. The other was that at this moment it doesn't seem to offer any significant advantage over Firefox, still my browser of choice.

I got the Connection box also. It lasted 10 minutes before I reverted to IE6. Shirley a common problem like this would have been obvious.
