Been using it for the past couple of months and it's good.

for some months, but I'm somewhat underwhelmed - it has several irritating faults at the moment.No doubt they'll be sorted out before launch day, but in the meantime I'm being unfaithful with another browser - Google Chrome's the girl for me at the moment.

Are all webs browsers feminine?

I've tried Chrome several times, and I really like its interface. But it's definitely slower at rendering web pages on my XP computer than IE7 is. I can't understand why.

I believe IE8 is to have to the same feature as Chrome, in which all tabs are actually independent instances of the browser, so that a crashed tab won't mean a crashed browser.

How does IE8 compare to IE7?

I am one of those who found IE7 so dreadful I reinstalled IE6.

Am I stuck with it for a bit longer?

i tried chrome was too basic, and gave up on ie a fair while ago

me too.. I have IE6... don't use it though. I always had the feeling that IE7 was using more and more memory the longer I kept the program open.
