Maybe it's me, but if this is the best Microsoft can do with this upgrade then I'll stick to IE6.

I thought the layout was terrible and confusing. Something you might have had made by Disney for AOL!

I'm not alone, as my brother-inlaw said the same.

Not impressed.

What's the problem with the layout? Mine's all neat and tidy.

Layout seems fine to me. Perhaps a visit to Dolland and Aitchison would be in order for you?

I quite like the layout, clean and tidy. I have had it since it came out, and apart from a few websites that won't show properly haven't had a problem with it. Takes a few minutes to get used to but whose counting. J.B.

I'm with redbarron on this (and I'm not his brother-in-law as far as I'm aware!).
IE7 caused myself and daughter probs and time- wasting on each of our pc's which have now both been rolled back to IE6.
I suppose it just proves the adage "new is not always better".

Not popular in this household. I should know because my wife's been complaining about it for days and my ears are receiving a right bashing. She misses all those nice big buttons at the top of the page that she likes to click on. Especially the "Read Mail" one that wasn't provided in the default set of icons.

and have had no problems whatsover.

I like the tabbed browsing and don't have any complaints.

IE7 is only a smash and grab of Firefox and came away with fingers missing .

Foxy lady is the way to go.

I use both but Firefox does feel cleaner and looks right.
