    Has anyone else tried Internet Explorer 7 ?
    I've been using Firefox for the last couple years, but I
    decided to try the new I.E. Not bad. Definitely an improvement,
    but I still like FireFox.

    isn't a browser just a browser...
    just a way to connect to the internet.

    the service provider (ie, aol, netzero, cox etc....) is what would make the difference I would think.

    I guess i just don't care, never used firefox, so maybe I just don't know

    I tried IE 7 but immediately had compatibility issues with other applications running under XP Pro. I uninstalled IE 7. Good thing XP Pro has a system restore feature.

    All browsers are not created equal.

    IE has been a security weak spot in the Windows OS for years. Additonally, no browser likes to track what you do quite the way IE does.

    If you look out of the window of a passing train,
    Hmm, IE7, a BIG improvement, but still crap!
    OTOH, Firefox is great, but again, still crap.

    The problem is, is that IE7 wants to take over every PC with a piece of software, poorly written and designed to dominate the windows market, whereas Firefox is just so much of a memory hog, it is starting to put me off from using it on more than one computer. (oh and having more than one browser on a computer to me is a waste.) But those are my ramdom comments. Tried both, don't like either, but stuck with both.
