I just downloaded Windows Service Pack 2 for my computer, and also got Internet Explorer 7 and Windows media player 11. So, I've decided to 'mini review' them. Screenshots included ;). Internet Explorer 7: A sleeker version of what we all know and somewhat love. It's noticeably crisper, and all your toolbars from IE 6 are imported. Tabs are a semi-new feature that takes a bit of the hassle off of opening numerous pages and filling up you start bar. Overall, it's just more of the same thing. 4/5. Screenshot:
Windows Media Player 11: Also much sleeker, and the library is much improved as seen in one of the screenshots. In the library, album art is displayed under artist, with songs from that specific CD displayed next to it. It doesnt appear that the 'mini player' from previous versions is back, but who used that anyways? When you minimize the WMP, it will appear as a small bar on the bottom of your screen. The online store is cool, but who actually goes on there anyways? Overall, It's quite nice, making it a bit of an improvement over the previous versions. 5/5. Screenshots:
I have a few things to say about your reviews:
The IE review mentions nothing about IE7's supposed biggest advantage; the fact that Microsoft claims it's more secure.
The WMP11 review dosen't mention anything about WMP's music store, or the lousy copy-protection it uses.
there are alot of New tihngs built in to IE7 whne it comes to secure but it is more of a painin the ass, the little bubbels come up asking do you want to save pass word liek things and thay pop up insted of a list u can run though and set up (took me a better part of the day to figure out i did not liek ie7). yo Fetter, is that a CPU useage thing near your clock? u got a lot of tool bars prob taking up 30 or so mb of ram.
IE7 is a lot bette but i prefer Firefox 2.0
