    Ie 7 ...

    Hi, I'm just downloading out of curiosity Internet Explorer 7 beta pi or something. It's currently installing, anyone using this? What do ye think of it? Comparing it to other browsers (FF, IE6 etc), what do ye think of it?

    I havent tried out the latest IE, I do my normal browsing in FF.

    Although when developing a website or any webbased project for school I try to use as many browsers to see how everything looks like on different browsers ( damn those webstandards ... although the meaning of standard is lost here ).

    What I like most about FF is the huge amount of plugins that exist.

    I will probably not install the latest IE untill its a full release ( not a beta version ).

    Yeah. I voted IE 7, cause that is what was using when I voted. It looks quite good actually. It's got on thing I like about it already - there's a search thing on the top right (which I think is in FF too), but it was initially set to the Windows search engine, but it offered me to change it to Google's also instead of having to press Ctrl T for a new tab, there's a small tab to the right of the right-most page which you can click to get a new one.

    It kinda reminds me of 'OMG I can't believe it's not FF', though

    Heh, I just went to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.mspx .

    The thing that surprised me was this:

    Simple is good. A redesigned, streamlined interface gives you more of what you need and less of what you don't. The new look maximizes the area of the screen that displays the webpage.
    . Has it taken really that long to figure out that people like it simple and straightforward... most of the time => "less is more"

    What I like best about my FF is its middle-click functionality (besides auto scrolling) - opens a new tab when clicked on a link, and closes the tab when clicked on its name.
    Once you get used to it you cant live without it.

    Opera. Similar (same I'm pretty sure) as FF when it comes to middle-clickies.
    Has a lot of other features I use all the time (wand for example) and it's voice activated. I can now march into a room and scream "OPERA, NEW!" at the top of my voice instead of middle clicking the toolbar
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    ARHG! There's no refresh button, and I can't customise it to make one! Not that I use it, but that's not the point.

    You don't use the refresh button??
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I normally use FF, because it's convenient to use !

    I use IE7, when doing my netbank - they don't use FF for some
    security issues.

    Good quoting Mario! Hehe ... get it? Oh man.

    Oh ... who made their own browser?

    EDIT - Good news. It does have a refresh button, but it just wasn't were I thought it was.
