How is IE7 Beta

  sunny staines 12:43 20 Mar 2006

IE7 Beta how been out a while now. Having read all the MS web tutorials on IE7 it looks good.

But a search on the web is full of opinons complaining of all manner of faults.

I presume these earlier bugs have been put right by now. Any one using IE7 give us an update please. [dont want to run it then have problems reverting back].

I'm sure IE7 is a long way from a full release and you'll have to use the Beta version for some considerable time. I've tried IE7 Beta and it's certainly a lot better than IE6, but that's not saying much. If you want the IE7 features but in a stable package look at Opera v8.5 or Firefox. They are complete stable packages and are better than IE7 will be, even when it's released as a full vesion.

I uninstalled IE7 Beta because I had lots of problems when it was installed on an almost new laptop. But that's just my experience. I know the Forum Editor has been using it for several months without problems.

I tried it, didn't like it and uninstalled it. I hope the full version will suit me better than the beta.

Like all beta version, there (on the law of averages) are bound to be some niggles.

Having just done a complete new reformat, I was contemplating installing IE7, but after consideration, I decided not to be a guinea pig this time.Some reviews look very good, others not so (that's life).

Still using it, click here, in fact I had forgotten I had it until I saw this posting which shows I have got used to using all the extra functions, tabs etc automatically, and I have not had any more related crashes.

I am still using it, never had any problems, and found it ideal to enlarge the print you have selected from a web page before printing without having to copy and paste into a word doc.
