I avoided installing IE7 due to a lot of adverse comments on this forum as well as the fact that my Canon printers EasyWeb printing tool bar won't work with IE7.
Yesterday Canon told me that they weren't worried about their EasyWeb tool bar not working with IE7 as IE7 does everything that their tool bar did with IE6 and it is no loner necessary if you update.
Last night I bit the bullet and installed IE7. I couldn't have been more pleased. It was easy to set up (and provide access to outlook express) and for those who don't like the lack of menus they can easily be put back as they were.
A lot of people had trouble with secure (banking) sites but I have checked all of mine and had no problems at all.
It might be psychological(is that how you spell it?) but it seems a lot faster than IE6.
Go for it, if it doesn't suit you all you do is uninstall it and E6 is back as it was before.
Ive had it since it was basically out (near enough) Ive had no problems what so ever and going to contine using IE 7. If you do upgrade, maby an idea to uninstall the old one and install the new one of your desktop after downloading it from you old one. Im not to sure if others would agree with me though.
There were some people who couldn't get access to some secure sites but there is a workaround for this provide by microsoft if it crops up. I read about it on one of the recent IE7 threads and it is something to do with making the site think you've got IE6.
