I keep getting the update alert to download IE7. Before I do this I would like to know if anyone else has downloaded and if there are any problems with it. I thought they were having some bugs all ready, is this so? That's just here-say. How is it security wise? Better than IE6? Hoe does it compare to Firefox 2? Thanks.

There have been problems with IE7, some of which may be simply its newness, but some which seem to be problems with the software itself and other problems have appeared with its interfacing with other applications.
IE7 is more secure than IE6 in many ways, and has upgraded features that bring it up to Ff2.0, but if you have Ff2.0 you still have a better, and safer, browser.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
