Internet Explorer 7
 
Is anyone using this version? Is it worth installing or should I stick with what I've got?

Alix, According to my DH, he said that it is not reliable and that he would not go for it.

I just upgraded to IE 7 yesterday and so far it's working without problems. It has supposedly fixed most of the major security problems which existed in IE 6 althought I read in the Wall Street Journal this morning that there have already been some security holes discovered.

Walt Mossberg, the technical writer for the WSJ, wrote a positive review of IE 7 yesterday and that's why I took the plunge.

I really like the tab feature that allows you to have multiple browser tabs open at the same time.

So far, I'm very happy with IE 7.

Note: You need to be running a valid and verifiable copy of Microsoft Windows XP with SP2. The upgrade verifies the validity of your copy of Windows XP.

Stick with what you got. Connie was just mentioning problems. ie is fraught with problems. Go with wireless high speed.

Mozilla Firefox has tabs and is safer, faster, and more secure.

Firefox is the only way to go! We were using ie down at the office and just browsing loaded us up with viruses, at home I run Firefox, unless a website won't work without ie - no viruses, no pop-ups, no problems. Our network guru (for the business) told me to load Firefox at the office and stay safe - it took 3 hours to scan for and delete the viruses! :mad::wacko::ermm::rolleyes:

Hmmm. OK, keep those opinions coming. I'm still trying to decide what to do.

Mish, we are high speed but won't go wireless because of all the problems we have heard about in our neighbourhood with wireless. Ken and I are not precisely technological idiots but we're only about one step up from there!

OK, I have verifiable XP with SP2 so if I do decide to install I should be fine. We haven't had any security issues with what we have right now, so I am still not sure whether this would be a good upgrade for us or not.

Aurora, what is that tab feature like? And why do you like it better than the toolbar at the bottom? Just curious. Thanks all!

I am liking it so far, nothing special to me, but I hear too many sites don't work properly in it and I'm sure it'll be a long time before those sites eventually support IE7.

If it isn't broken...
