Was wondering if anyone has installed IE7 yet- if so, any bugs or problems with it that you can see?

I did last night. The anti-phishing feature slows down the webpage load quite a bit. Had a few hangs when I went to refresh. Also the setting to open all links in a new tab doesn't work all the time. Which is annoying because it defeats the purpose of having tabbed browsing. So I am sure there will be fixes and updates fairly often and fairly soon to come.

Why anyone uses IE is beyond me

If everyone quit using IE, it wouldn't take any time at all to see how exploitable all the other browsers truly are. I use firefox at home and opera at work and IE on my laptop. I just don't get the hate for microsuck. You just don't hear as much about the other browsers because use is a fraction of IE's.

I use opera with an IE7 skin. I do like the way IE7 looks.

Been testing it a bit here at work... not too bad... I don't think I'll be switching from Firefox though...

FYI: The version that comes with Vista RC2 is a more recent version than the one made available to the public. Less buggy too. I'd recommend it if you've got Vista RC2. It features 256-bit cipher strength, over the 128-bit version in the public IE7.

My links have been opening in new windows all the time, despite setting to open in new tab. I disabled the anti-phishing feature.

Overall, it seems like an improvement over IE 6 to this point.

cause microsuck really does suck

if they didn't have already have a corner on the market in term capability they would already be out of business.

unstable POS

but unless you are really into computers and know how to work with them, windows is the only option.

There's a few "plug and play" type things out there like Lindows etc ... but for the most part it's only microsuck.

Installed it...ran it and it froze automatically at the runonce2.aspx page. Uninstalled it. That worked well surprisingly. I use Maxthon...it's basically IE6 with tabs and groups and most of what you can find in Firefox.

Here try it out: http://www.maxthon.com/

I highly recommend it if you're used to viewing site in IE6. It uses the same rendering engine as IE6. But...it adds the ability to apply skins, use tabs, save groups of tabs, it has a pop up blocker that works well and it can clean your history...Plus much more.

Two posts, that may be a new record if you would have included a link or reference to Firefox.

Because anyone who knows anything about computers doesn't use Windows. %(/

Maxthon is better than IE or IE7. However, it still is based on the IE engine and therefore still doesn't live up to the web standards. Designers seem to becoming more and more standards oriented if only to screw IE.

Anyway, the RAM usage is also misleading when compared to Firefox or Opera as IE is built into the OS so it can appear to have less memory build up than it really does.
