IMO it's the bastard child of IE6 and a seemingly random selection of innovations drawn from other software, combined with a drop of Microsoft-ness. It doesn't suck, but I'd much rather use something like Firefox or Opera.

Edit: Gah. Sorry.

... that the new version of IE is crapola?

Thanks.

To STALKER: Yeah, I guess.

Think about it. Most of the people that are using the internet are surfing it via IE. Therefore, popularity = more viruses/hackwares dedicated to screwing it up.

Also, to be honest, IE is an example of MS getting the gist about 10 years too late... again.

Thank you for this completely worthless thread.

Chris, if you are going to post about IE's faults, at least LIST and DISCUSS them.

IE7 is a ok browser, its better than IE6 was by far, but its still not that great. The best feature is that IE finally has tabbed browsing.

Firefox or Opera are still much better.

It's worth the upgrade. It's alteast as secure, if not a tad more than IE6, and the tabbed browsing in nice too.

I don't use a browser. I take a laptop to the host computer and directly connect to their database.

No. I don't use IE unless I have to. I'm an Opera man.

I like IE7. It has features I like, and some I dont. Firefox has some I like and some I dont. It really comes down to what you prefer. Mainly I use Firefox. My parents however, still use IE. Atleast its version 7.
