    So many new features, so much cool stuff

    Tabbed browsing, magnification/zoom-in/zoom-out,view all open tabs, Built in RSS feed reader, Security with an awesome new phishing filters

    It's lightning fast to start, lightning fast to browse compared to my IE6 and Firefox, and feels very solid although it's still a beta

    Memories....

    What's new about it ? I mean what are the new features in IE that we didn't already have in Firefox, Opera, Flock or even Epiphany?
    How about the security and Phishing filter?
    The magnifier?
    The piece of mind that it's not being downloaded from some warez site? (happened to me 3 times)
    Runs faster that anything I've seen so far (but don't take my word for it, try it yourself) even though it's still a beta!
    Renders pages EVEN when firefox throws it's hands in the air and crys to mommy that the format has an extra ";"
    the last time i installed ie7 beta (downloaded from MS website
    ) it cuased problems with windows, it crashed it, i had to uninstall it, i'm on winxp sp2.
    i'm pretty sure its not my pc cuase it was a fresh install, so i don't know if that was a known issue or what, but i'm not sure if i want to intall this one.
    Wallah Bakkouz, this Beta3 bitjannin.
    I too had issues when I installed Beta1 and Beta2 and had to install it. But Windows has been up and running on this computer for almost 3 years. And with IE7, it's sweeeeeeeeeeet! It runs really fast, looks really great. And has support for everything I had in 6 (so far). So why not, I'd play with it a bit
    On my Vesta machine it's slightly different. The menus are a little bit larger there (which I hate, because they're wasted screen space). But Vista Beta2 had IE7Beta2 instead of Beta3
    Anyway, when analysing my traffic, I am already seeing around 8% traffic coming from IE7 Which is high on the heels of Firefox. Of course IE6 is astronomically higher than everything else
    yay!!

    I had to uninstall the last beta version of IE because of it's horrible rendering of CSS.  I couldn't use it for design testing purposes because it wasn't even close to standards compliant.  

    Another thing I didn't care for in the last beta was that it overwrote IE6.  I don't use IE6 for browsing, but it's necessary to have around for development.  I wish Microsoft would allow both simultaneously.

    I have been running IE7 beta as my main browser since January, and I am loving it. BTW, I work in web development, and I think that having it as the main browser does mean something here :P

    Today I installed Beta3 and its amazing; fast, reliable, enhanced user experience and much more... Life is good :)

    By the way, I don't see An American in Jordan on that screenshot of blogs.  Gar.
    How about now?
    I doubt it's reliability...

    I can't trust MS specially with beta versions, I think I will wait the actual the release, I can't tolerate more bugs :/
    I on the other hand have moved 100% to IE7 now. and I'm no looking back ... Firefox for me .. is just open and not doing anything

    Dude, MS does software better than 99.99% of all software companies in the world. The problem is, no one's software is as widely used to expose all their issues

    And I'm not talking about little players, I'm talking about mega corporations, Oracle, Cisco, RSA and many others. Being buried so deep in the software industry allows me to have a really high Bullshit radar. And the fact is, everyone sucks AS BAD AS Microsoft, the only good thing is that tier vulnerabilities are not known YET! They might be there, and people exploiting them without anyone knowing. But in Microsoft case, the whole world is testing

    I heard from Very reliable sources that Vista brought down the Akamai network and that it was the most downloaded software in history. Not sue if this stuff made it to the media, but I heard from so many friends that they couldn't download it, on inspecting turns out the Akamai's dual 50GBps connections weren't able to handle the traffic!

    In a year from now, we'll all be on IE7 and most will be on vista already
    Sure thingy man ! Everybody use Windows !

    the problem with microsoft is the killing known vulnerabilities in windows 98, and the vulnerabilites in IIS. it's true, because it's widely used, so everybody knows the vulnerabilities, and even script kiddies can nail ur butt ! that's why those bugs shouldn't exist at the first place.

    that's why i will wait the actual release of IE7, after people discover it's vulnerabilities, and Firefox is doing fine with me, I doubt if I gonna try the new thing :)
    Keep you options open :) That's what made you land on Firefox to start with

    Windows 98!! 98 man .. are you kidding, that's 8 years ago. It's a miracle that it still works! As for IIS, 5.0 and 6.0 are seriously awesome. Just keep your machines getting the automatic updates and you'd be good

    Here's why you have problems in Amman, PIRACY! that's the reason. Illegal copies that are not getting patched and updated... If someone didn't even pay for the software he's using how is he expecting support?

    Anyway, I'm glad there are a bunch of competitors for Microsoft. This s the only way they can get their shit together and us (the customers) happy

    Yey! You have Google Toolbar installed? :|
    What happened to the Pro-Microsoft attitude? Go get MSN toolbar and forget about Google's.

    I hate Google!
    Now now Rami. I hate no one. If Google makes something nice, I would use it. If Microsoft makes something good. I will use it.
    The point I would like to make is Don't have preconceptions about the tool based on the manufacturer. Don't limit your options

    Thank you firefox and others for making Microsoft update it browser.  Downloaded IE 7 and love it.  BTW, tabbed windows have been around since '94.  Firefox borrowed someone's idea too.
    Wow ... since 94! Amazing, IE didn't event exist back then! But I think previously no one anticipated that people will be opening more than one site at the same time

    Jxnc, Yes, Totally agree, thanks to Firefox, Opera and all others for forcing Microsoft to update the stagnant IE6
    laweeeeeeeeeeeesh blogi mesh bel screen shot?
    what you are doing is very similar to what our lovely government is doing everyday; supporting expats (An American in Jordan) and kicking citizen asses; and this happens under the name of Privatization and investment, I wonder what was the bribe you got from Dave?

    :D
    Now tell me I'm negative :p
    Dude ... I can't have all 50 blogs in here .... :D
