From the user feedbacks at MS community, it appears that users are up in arms against IE7. Viewing from the litany of delineated issues of crashes, freezes, page rendering problems, slow loading, poor interface, installation issues, inability to access some websites, inability to access email, etc.. are to no end. Did Microsoft acted recklessly in releasing IE7 prematurely knowing all these existing incompatibility issues? By the look of things, which merit the question: This released IE7, is it still actually a BETA????? MS seems to be rather arrogant, in laying all the responsibility at other software companys' doorstep, and said it is not MS's problem. What do you think?? Regards. YOYO. :thumbsup:

Well, MS is pushing it out to its customers via automatic update, so it had better NOT be a Beta release. Certainly MS may have rushed to production, given the inroads made by Opera and especially Firefox on its browser market share, but on the other hand, some of the problems experienced by users may just be inexperience with something new. Indeed, some of the same problems are experienced by many people using IE6.
My experience with MS products has been that it is certainly safer NOT to be the first in my neighborhood to have their latest and greatest product, and to delay installing any patches or critical updates they provide for at least a week or two.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
