I've been using IE7 for a few days now (I still use FireFox primarily) and have a few comments on it so far. Some pros I have found are: Tabbed browsing - an obvious must in this multitasking day and age.. Better "Crashing" handling - I've noticed that when IE crashes and needs to close, it doesn't close every IE window I have open (ok so I don't use tabs exclusively ) but my remaining windows are left open. This is really nice. Better look graphically - I can tell IE7 will be stock with Vista. It has that crisp Web 2.0 feel to it. Some cons I have found are: Crashes more often than IE6 - I have noticed IE crashes a lot more often than it did before I upgraded.. This is probably due to being in BETA still and hopefully will not remain a reason to not use it. Slower page loading - Again, I don't know what changed in the backend, but it takes at least a second of loading before my homepage comes up when I open IE. I use Google as my homepage and it opens lightning fast in FireFox and IE6. I doubt this is just an issue on my end. Confusing button and controls layout - Nobody once complained about the location of the refresh button.. Why would they move it? I don't know. Even worse, why would unlocking the toolbars NOT let me move the buttons around? I don't know.. but that makes me mad. No built in support for plugins or skins - Come on Microsoft.. This is one of FireFox's biggest draws. Give us easy skinning! ----- So, if you are considering upgrading to IE7, I certainly guarantee that you give it a try. Don't take my word for it, but at least keep my thoughts in mind when you run across similar issues. I am NOT impressed with IE7 overall, and right now the only reason I have it is to make sure my websites are cross browser compatible. So, will I use IE7 or continue using FireFox? Well, considering I can't think of a list of cons for FireFox, I'll stick with it for now. IE still has a long way to go before it will get my vote. Anyone else have any thoughts on IE7?
