Hello Thank you for the info.rawprawn/anskyber When you have down loaded IE 7 Beta would you care to contribute a comment on its attributes. Is it any good ?Is it better than Internet Explorer 6 ? Is it better than Firefox? Are there any problems. Does the down load simply update Internet Explorer 6 or is it a complete free standing browser. I am sure a lot of folk will be interested. Thanks gel
My first impressions are that it looks like a cross between Firefox and Opera. Lots of new and useful features, for example thumbnail view of all open webpages, saving favourite websites just be dragging the title into the favourites folder and even RSS feeds! The tabs feature is good, and the one-click clear of browsing history is a fantastic idea. The anti-phish feature is useful as well. The only criticism is the default setting of clear-type fonts - but this is easily changed, and the messy layout of toolbars and address bars. As regards to whether its quicker than IE6, to be honest, seems to be the same. Overall, thumbs up, but I'll be testing it a lot more yet. So far so good.
Hello rawprawn. I too tried IE 7 and didn't like it so I am back to Firefox but I have been watching articles on IE 7 by using google alert with info on IE 7 and the article I referred appeared Thought it may be of interest gel
Bear in mind that we're talking about a public beta of IE 7, and the reason it's been released in this way is to get it tested in a huge userbase. IE7 will ship (in its finished form) with Vista, and Microsoft obviously want to get it as right as possible before then. We still have a fair way to travel before the Vista launch, and I think we'll be seeing at least one more beta of IE7 before that happens.
