IE 7 thoughts after use...

  1. I decided to give IE7 a try, it installed quite easily, and suprise suprise with minimum fuss, but once installed, and after 20 minutes of use I decided that I absolutley hated it...

    Why, well whats with the phishing filter, it kept blocking websites even when turned off, I lost the channel4\big brother video page ( it literally disappeared somewhere and i had to shut all the web pages out before it reapperared) it seemed to crawl when loading pages, and even though I ticked the box that says dont show this again on the new tab page, it still showed the same message. it seemed very similar to firefox to me.

    On the plus side...... sorry I dont have a plus side to it. What are MS thinking,. the IE that ships with XP works well enough why change it.?
    Question is, is it as full of security holes as all the other IE's they have brought out

    Just my opinion feel free to flame me if you like.... :evil:

    Suggestion... use Firefox or Netscape.

    IE7 does at least have a junk filter then :)
