Anyone trying this out yet? I just pulled it and it is pretty neat.. Still microsoft but seems pretty fair so far. I usually dont mess with betas but I have been waiting to try this one.

I just looked it up. Had previously been unaware that a new version would be coming out.

From the looks of it, its going to rock.

I dont know why they didnt do this sooner, with the tabs within the window for different pages..

Just might have to give the beta a shot.

Any expected date for the release?

I had a look, and for the most part it's just getting to the stage Firefox was at long ago. They've made it look so so much like firefox it's almost scary.

yeah thats what I was thinking..... looks alot like opera moreso than firefox to me anyways... it is alot faster than IE6 tho Im not sure how, but it took a few secs to load a page with 6 but they come right up with 7 and that is loading pages I have never been to with either. I like it so far.

IE Rules! Yeah it works great, and I get to view all the web pages unlike FireFox, and if anyone is using firefox they just released a patch, just like IE , it is hackable if unpatched. you gain nothing by using FireFox, if fact it doesn't display all web pages correctly , so you lose by using it...


Systems Affected

Mozilla software, including the following, is affected:
* Mozilla web browser, email and newsgroup client
* Mozilla SeaMonkey
* Firefox web browser
* Thunderbird email client


Overview

Several vulnerabilities exist in the Mozilla web browser and derived products, the most serious of which could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on an affected system.

that is how I feel. EVERYTHING has a way to be hacked into it really does not matter how well thought out it is. where there is a will there is a way. Look at linux, yes it does not have ALL the avenues of attack but it can still be hacked. So to me, that arguement is invalid.

I gave firefox a try for a couple of weeks. Liked it at first, but that quickly went away..

After repeadly having to load up IE to dispaly webpages correct or even display them at all, I gave Firefox the boot...

This new IE is very welcomed by myself...

I'd rather deal with the "short-comings" of FireFox than use another MS product. The more MS I can phase out of my system the better.

I just tried to install IE7B2. My Win XP is up to date, my anti spam, anti spyware and anti virus are up to date. IE7 says "error loading msfeeds.dll" and quit! Those of you who are enjoying IE7B2 please do a google search on msfeeds. The number of bugs, holes and security problems in IE7 might make you think about keeping it. Yes, I know it is Beta but that usually means something is fairly clean. Not this puppy.

The so called space saving toolbar consolidation is a joke. The entire top level is solely dedicated to the address bar and won't allow resizing or share the level with other toolbars so all your prefered toolbars have to go on the next level down and then below that is the tabbed browsing level, so the whole toolbar section takes up way more space than IE6 where I had everything on a single level.

At least the fixed search bar allows the use of google instead of just MSN , but Google toolbar users lose the "Search Current Site" option etc. in the trade, and I was able to discard the other toolbar I was using to eliminate that extra toolbar level. A toolbar consolidation IE7 is not. Consolidates the versitility of seperate toolbars right out of existance maybe.

Its a bit unussual, back and forward button are a PITA to get to and as said the toolbars are screwed up (whats with putting the menubar below the address?). But most importantly they seem to have gone the way of mozzilla for FTP, no upload without using an FTP client, that REALLY is annoying.

Good news is it loads fast both sites and program, and I thinking the rendering is a bit nicer. Shame there isn't a "classic mode" i would switch back but I have a feeling we are stuck with it in the next version of windows so better to learn it now .

CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? LOL

I am running Firefox under FC4 and it BLOWS GOAT. Can't wait to get back to my Windows XP . You can get multiple tabs in IE 6 you just need to d/l and install MSN Desktop Search (http://desktop.msn.com/).

I haven't figured out how to get the tabbed browsing to work.. Links still open new windows rather than new tabs. I right click on a link and tell it to "open in new tab" but it just opens the current page in a new tab, end up with a bunch of tabs of the same page and can only get to the link destination by letting it open a new window for it. Thought the point was to keep everything within a single window. So far I'm really unimpressed.

IE 7 B2 is working great for me, I can not believe how fast the pages are loadingl, I just installed it on my home machine, I installed it at work earlier!

I like the way the pages are rendered also, it is sharper!

No back button issues for me, I just use the mouse button to go back, I have been since IE 5.

Sharper? I think fonts looks all dithered and blurry. Makes me cross-eyed looking at it. But pictures do look seem to look a lot better. Probably what you're talking about.

Captain Chaos,

The fonts are fuzzy because ClearType fonts are turned on. Goto Internet Options | Advanced, then uncheck use ClearType. Once you restart IE it should look a lot better.

Thanks.
