        IE7 is microsoft finally dragging thier arse into the 21st century, browser wise. Built in pop-up blockers and tabbed browsing were done 3 or 4 years ago with opera and firefox, and MS is only now catching up?

        And we're meant to hail this as a technical breakthrough???

          I do like Firefox, but it seems some HTML coders/webmasters are still not coding correctly for it in some pages (although java applets are becoming more popular to allow for non specific browser functions to be run).

          I also got a bit carried away with all the extensions available, which meant it chewed up heaps of memory.

          I haven't installed IE7, but if it hasn't integrated anything that I cant get out of firefox Im not going to bother.

              Apparently IE7 still has its problems, you can encounter memory leaks and some pages wont load correctly with java stuff in them. I'm not going to upgrade until theres a service pack out with it in there.

                Pro networks is probably the best site for support, tweaking windows "Vista" codename longhorn.
                You wont ever see a service pack till vista's released later this year, 1st of December.
                You might some improvments from build to build, latest build 5308 (beta 2).

                  Longhorn and vista are two seperate ms projects, vista is the new xp, longhorn is the new server 2k3, and I don't even like the look of that, it looks too much like those filthy apples.

                    Longhorn is the codename for the next windows, Vista is it's retail name. Longhorn server doesnt have a retail name as yet... Next windows is codename Vienna

                      I have IE7 Beta 2 installed at work. Seems ok thus far. Haven't noticed any problems with memory leaks. The initial configuration is still towards 'new-window-browsing' as oppose to tabbed browsing, which did some funny things. Played around with the settings a bit and got that working properly and now I am fairly happy with it.

                      It does look pretty slick and the new buttons/icons look nice I guess...it is hardly a leap forward in internet browsing though. Just about brings M$ up to speed with everyone else. Just about...

                      I can't say I have used Mozilla much in a M$ environment, only under Linux so I can't really compare apples with apples.

                        Biggest issue I have with IE7 under XP, is that aside for the "anti-phishing" add-in and it disabling most Active-X runtime components, I don't think it's going to be that much safer. It still requires certain admin privs to run - it's an issue with the OS, not IE7 that will be fixed (finally) in Vista.

                              Jeez Vista looks like KDE / GNU 5 years ago ... nice to see microsoft can finally make a PC look almost like a Unix/Linux/Mac box but using probably 500% more resources.
