Yes and I like it.
The new IE7 is great. It works, which is much more than I can say for Firefox 2.0, which promptly crashed immediately after being installed.
I downloaded Firefox 2.0 the other day and it installed perfectly and works perfectly. It even automatically found and downloaded the newest version of the Fasterfox extension that works with FF2.0.
My bad luck is with Opera. I used to use it, but now it just doesn't work for me. I have no idea why.
I did download IE 7 and I hated it. I found you can't do some of the things you can with IE 6. So I will not use IE 7.
no i will never download or use internet explorer 7
the reason,IE7 or IE6 never works on my pc.I had this problem for more 10 month.i even format my pc thinking this will solve the problem,nothing helped.
I was using IE6,the problem is,all the times(the page cannot be displayed) come up,i download IE7 thinking this will solve the problem,the same error(rubbish).
I download firefox it was brilliant(no problem at all),it works perfectly well.i am still using firefox,and will never use IE6 or IE7 anymore.
IE is the most inefficient, buggy,useless piece of software ever cobbled together!.
If there was any justice it would be banned worldwide.
Compared to Firefox, it is a load of junk!
I don't care what microsoft does to it, IE is still crappy old IE. Basically all they've done is -attempt- to copy-cat firefox, but Firefox still PWNS internet explorer.
i agree totally....ei is garbage....fire fox rules
I totally agree. Firefox over IE anyday. IE is junk no matter what version.
Using IE7, yes BUT..................
Yes, I will happily use IE7 when the following ten events happen, or the top 10 reason NOT to use IE7:
10. Microsoft put out an OS that is mostly error free and secure [please see number 1. above.]
9. IE7 is bug free, and totally secure [again see number 1. above.]
8. Law passed requiring IE7 use only.
7. Microsoft is the ONLY software available.
6. Forced to use a regular Windows [windoze] based PC.
5. Firefox, Opera, or Netscape are no longer available.
4. Forced to use it because a Internet site is only viewable with it, [then I really don't care about that site anyway.]
3. Microsoft will pay me to use IE7 just like it did for email tracking.
2. Apple stops making computers.
1. When an eternally hot region freezes over [ie. hades/heck freezes over.]
I have downloaded it and I do not like it because I use a program called Roboform daily and it does not work with IE 7.
NO, I will not download and use IE7
At the moment I use Win2000Pro and IE7 does not operate on Win2000. If I am forced to change, I will go for LINUX/Firefox and say goodbye to Win2000.
These kind of actions only bring me closer to finally saying goodbye to MS.
Rephrase question please
The question should preferably have been: which of the following browsers do you prefer:
My first choice is Opera - available in mutiple languages and very friendly as far as downloads (and resuming download link breakages) are concerned.
Definately rephrase the question
I agree with you, more browsers should have been listed. One other browser which should also be included is Avant browser since it is listed as one of the 3 most popular browsers on Cnet. Avant (up to Version 10 build 52) is my choice over IE (Version 6 & 7) and Firefox 2. I don't like Firefox's and IE7'S search dialog box being in the upper right hand corner. People read from left to right so why not have the option to click on the search button in IE and have a dialog box open up on the right hand side of the browser like Avant does. The biggest thing I didn't like about FireFox (any version) is the unability to display my Favoites in multiple columns. I have, and I'm sure others do, any where from 50 to 100s of "Favorite" yet Avant is the only browser I've found that displays them in multiple columns. In Firefox and IE you have to scroll down through your list.
IE 7 ... Love It!
I have been using IE 7 since the last Beta Release and I love it. Particularly ...
1. The tabs ... I always have at least 4-5 sites running at the same time, so the tabs are great!
2. The autoscaled printing! Always hated the fact that previous IE's did not scale automatically cutting off part of the page.
No, I will not download IE7
Because I did it twice and seen my computers stucks as IE6 was better off with my system and when it comes to uninstall it does not replace the IE6 back as it was been removed during IE7 installation so all icons and file extension of IE7 remains in the system where IE6 finds more difficult to run!
Will you download and use Internet Explorer 7?
I downloaded and it locked up my system. I deleted and tried it again. Still locked up my system. I will try again in a few days.
Older OS's abandended with IE7
As some hardware I use is not supported by XP I will not be upgrading from W2K and I cannot run IE7 on W2K.
My reason as well...
I am running Win2000 Pro and cannot upgrade to XP w/o major HD expense. Win2K and IE 6 works fine for me.
Only when I'm forced to
Yes, I've downloaded it and installed it, and I use it when I'm forced to: there are still sites out there that are not Firefox-friendly.
What I like about it: it finally has tabbed browsing. It's more secure than IE 6.
It's still insecureinsecureinsecureinsecureinsecureinsecure.
Will continue to use firefox 2.0 and ie6 (for non firefox sites) until IE7 is ironed out by Microsoft
To paraphrase a comment made by someone else regarding IE7 - it is just a 'bandage' to lessen the bleeding that Firefox and other superior browsers have inflicted to IE's market share. IE7's awesome new features are old news for other browsers that have been around for a considerable amount of time already, and it still doesn't hold a candle for web standards support. It is also restricted to just one OS, while alternatives are cross platform. IE7 was originally intended for Vista, but released prematurely for WinXP as a stopgap solution.
I see no need to 'upgrade' to XP or Vista. Win2k does 95% of what XP can do without the extra bloat, and for what features XP has, there are third party programs for Win2k that do it twice as good (firewall, file extractor, anti-malware, etc).
I ditched IE6 long ago switching to Mozilla, then to Firebird which became Firefox and never looked back. Considering how after they won the browser war, M$ became complacent and let IE6 rot into a buggy, vulnerable mess. Would you really want to go back to them? What do you think will happen if IE7 were to reclaim the browser share?
Hi downloaded it yesterday, so far so good. But I don NOT like the auto scroll, anybody know how to stop it
IE7 I think I will wait
From all I have read from others here and CNET's
comparison of IE and Firefox, I am going to
hold off until I dont have a choice due to the
next ms operating system or something similar .
moveing the buttons I use most will mess me up to
much to get over it - be cussing it out too much hahaha
I use the back button and refresh a LOT on ebay
A LOT !!!!
and the pull down between the back and forward so
I can jump back to a given point without using back
I havent heard anything about 7 that is better or
more wow to entice me yet.
I downloaded it but I am not happy with it and I am considering going back to IE6 once I can work out how as I am very much a novice. Any advice would be appreciated.
My PC uses XP and I normally work with Yahoo.
no, will not, I downloaded it and it threw my whole machine into shambles, I messed with it for days trying to configure with no luck then its just cost me 94 GBPoumds to get it fixed,by the PC guy,I a ma pensioner and do not need this expense
Not if I dont have to
FireFox 2 has everytihng I'll ever need and more. And I feel safer having a browser that is not part of my OS.
With Explorer 7 your settling for what Microsoft gives
you, With Opera and FireFox 2 you make it what you want in a browser. Besides every time Microsoft revamps something They have to patch holes for the next year.
I use IE 7 for several months now and I must say:
Its not ready yet!!!
It uses not the standard fonts Microsoft uses in all its other products. Most IE7 fonts are thinner. IE 7 does not handle many favicons correctly and has several other minor flaws.
So my advise is: not yet recommended, no stars earned yet!!!
kind regards to you all,
Internet Exp 7
I ws ask to try the beta version but did not. I am glad I didn't. I WILL NOT use this version UNTIL it s completely trouble free If EVER. Already there have been so many updates to correct problems that should not have been there if Microsof had taken its time and took a serious to get the job done correctly in the first place. Did they learn a lesson? Apparently not, the new VISTA is already having application problems. rain the Vista Check for my computer. It says I am ready for VISTA but to check with MSN sites Messengerand so on because of possible application issues and this is Microsoft's own company? WHAT'S UP with that? Also Rapospy Music player might not work etc. I won't apply VISTA until they stop rushing ths soft ware because of flaws and other probems to meet deadlines and tomake more money. When all of these issues are finally resolved if ever, then I will upgrade. Sincerely, Stephen M. Daniels
I do a lot of online business, including bill pays. IE7 is constantly crashing; I keep getting the Shut Down notice.
And Firefox doesn't open many of my favorite sites. Same with Netscape. So now am using Opera. Much faster..but still has kinks. Best one: I also have an iMac OSX, and Safari is fast, bug-free, and super easy.
That is exactly what happens to me with IE7 too! I get the shut down notice, or it lags forever until whatever works itself out and it gets going again. I hate it. I do like my Mozilla/Firefox, I have only ever used the two programs so I cannot compare it to others, but I will stick with M/F.
