So after a friend of mine tells me about the new IE and how great it looks, I broke down and decide to check it out for myself. I have tried to use Firefox because I like the tabbed browsing, but the pages always seem to load slower than Internet Explorer, which can get slightly annoying after a while, but IE has finally added Tabbed Browsing, as well as a quick tab button, to let you see little screen shots of all your tabs that you currently have open. They have slimmed down the top, allowing for more of the page to be viewed at once. I believe it default comes with the address bar, and the tab bar. I dont know how stable it is, knowing Microsoft prolly not very, but I figured it would be worth a try, and so far, I gotta say, I'm liking it.

A colleague has it also and really likes it. The fact Google already has a script that changes the search in IE7 from MS search to Google is pretty handy too.

IE7 is for Vista and XP only. Grrrr.

Damn Microsoft: making their technologies for one audience only. Their new media players...messengers, and internet browsers..ONLY FOR XP. Makes those of us who don't like XP realy upset.

If you like IE7, just use Maxthon. It's built on the IE engine, so the pages do load quicker than a normal Firefox install, but it already has tabbed browsing (and loads of other features) built in. They're getting ready to release Maxthon 2, and it's a big step up from both IE and Firefox.

I've been using IE7 for a bit now, and do think it's an improvement. Some nice new options, and better security features for sure.

Just downloaded that new Office 2007 beta as well and I'm really digging it. Something as simple as replacing the standard menus with tabs creates a great look. Seems easier to find the option I want. Really like it so far.

Downloaded Maxthon..and it's not bad, seems to run lighter than IE, and loads a whole lot faster than Firefox. Something I'll have to remember to recommend to people needing an alternative. Thanks Botter.

Just out of curiosity, are you on dial-up? I've never seen slow load times with Firefox. I'm wondering if this is related to your download speed.

Has anybody tried Bon Echo (the Firefox 2 alpha) yet? I've seen "Firefox/2.0a#" show up in the logs a few times but haven't downloaded it yet. At this point, I'm waiting for the first beta to come out later this month.

I am using the new Opera 9 Beta and it is smooth like butter! I would HIGHLY recommend it. Only problem I encountered so far is that it import bookmarks from IE and Firefox, but not from previous editions of Opera.

No DSL, and it's not like snail like slow, but from my experiences it does load slower than IE, especially on a lot of sites with a lot of images/multimedia.

I am liking Maxthon though, and have been using it on my laptop since I heard about it. It doesn't seem to crash nearly as much as IE, has the tabbed browsing, and just seems to run better on my system.

The Netopia is working as modem and router. I need to be able to plug the back office computer into one of the LAN ports on the Netopia, and then plug the wire from the Linksys into another of the LAN ports on the Netopia.
