Please see this poll over at Calendar Of Updates which asks whether, or not, you will switch back to the New and Improved IE 7.0 (if, and when, it is released)

Sure I will get it but not use it unless I have to on those active X required sites like microsoft.com.

I use Firefox and will continue to do so. For one reason is that the way MS works is they leave tons of holes then when somebody complains they get a patch.

During that time people get there pc's filled with spyware and viruses.

I wonder though will Gates new IE have tabbed browsing?

And besides Firefox moves faster anyways. Or at least on my pc.

Faster...I love Firefox, but I wouldn't say it is necessarily faster. Sometimes it takes forever to load (WinXP Home 512 MB) Please see this survey.

The author correctly advises:

"It all depends on how you use your browser and what you use it for, and what operating system(s) you use it on." What I can say from a personal, non-scientific, comparison between IE and Mozilla is that the latter is, on my computer, noticeably faster.

In addition to speed, there are other factors that the common user should consider, such as security, ease of use, and features. Unless IE is separated from the operating system, fixes ActiveX (if that is humanly possible), and includes many of the useful features of Mozilla (or FF, with its extensive list of plug-ins), I will only update if required to get to some of MS webpages.
I fear IE will be too late and too little, and most likely only help those users who have XP.
