Hello,

I am new to this forum and I thought it would be a good place to ask what other users of Internet Explorer think of Microsoft's new Internet Explorer 7!!

Do you like it or doe you prefer to stay with version 6??

Any and ALL responses are WELCOMED!!!

Just trying to get a consensus from some other users!!

Thanks!!

I switched to FireFox before IE7 was released which I prefer over any IE. but I still have IE7 since its almost needed at this point if you run Windows. IE7 is a long awaited update to IE6 the addition of Tabbed browsing and advanced security features are the main things that make it better then IE6.

There are plenty of great browsers out there and everyone has its place. Apples Safari Browser is in Beta testing for Windows now and Opera is also a regular favorite. None really have the extensions of Firefox which turns you browser into something more useful.

6 is outdated and should have been done away with years ago. 7 is a step in the right direction but is still behind many 3rd party browsers.

"Discovered" Firefox as 7 was released.....and never looked back. Ff indeed is something different....and safer...the malware artists haven't gotten there yet.......

7 does have that tabbed browsing though...and added security...because it needed it!!!!

Hi trumpetman51,

Have a look at the MozillaZine article; Websites look wrong.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

The above-mentioned Ff site is of immeasurable help....All you wanted to know and then some...Good stuff with all their Forums too!!

If you are using "No-Script"....and I hope that you are....I have found it helpful to "Temporarily Allow" certain sites for them to do what you want.

Never...ever...."Allow Globally"...It defeats the entire purpose of its protection.
