IE 7 Review





AlphaAddict




Code:
The current Beta 1 release of IE 7 is too buggy to use as an everyday browser but it shows promise. I've crashed the browser hard several times in Windows Vista Beta 1, and the standalone version won't retain its window size and doesn't display the standard toolbar by default for some reason. But IE 7 will be an important release for Microsoft, and the question now is whether it will be enough to stem the flood of defections to Mozilla Firefox. My guess is that it will be good enough, though of course time will tell. In the meantime, my advice is to stay away from IE 7 Beta 1--especially on XP, where it overwrites the more stable IE 6.0--and wait for Beta 2. If my suspicions are correct, IE 7 could surprise a lot of people, including even me.
