What do you like/dislike about Internet Explorer 7?
In response to your question, what I definitely dislike most is that, intentionally or otherwise, many Websites have not upgraded their compliance and when I started working with IE7, two weeks ago, I found myself blocked out of familiar business sites, with a HTTP 404 error message.
Going to the knowledge-base page, I found that this was already well known to MS and a User Agent String Utility mimicking IE6 was available as a download. It sounded fine but it des not work.
All I could do was to download Netscape but somehow I still get occasional 404 error messages with it too.
Another thing I have noticed with the install of IE7 is that Flash Player no longer works. I cannot open any news video or product demo. I tried to re-download Flash Player but in vain and the new 9.0.28 will not download, just the 9.0.16.
All these features were working fine until I downloaded IE7.
The wretched thing seems so pervasive that I do not know whether to risk uninstalling it or to use the Go-Back feature. I would hate to have to do the latter because of loss of many updates. I wish I had stayed with IE6 a little longer!
