Thoughts?
It's a piece of shit. I want to karate chop the person that thought it was a good idea to make a new one and try to be like Mozilla. My computer has gone schizo by downloading IE and I just bought it two weeks ago!

Once you do Firefox...you never go back.

I have and love Firefox. But there was a game that was downloaded that needed IE 7 for some reason so we ended up getting that.

I uninstalled it though. Hopefully I got it out of my computer.

I don't think it is as bad as some of you guys make it out to be. The text does look kinda blurry like Sicy says but I like the font style better. And I love the way the tabs look and the New Tab button. It has a better look and feel than Firefox but some of the features seem hidden and out of sight. Guess it needs getting used to.

Indeed, it is a vast improvement upon IE6. As someone who dabbles in web design, the problem for me is that not only do I have to make sure pages display correctly on IE7, but IE6, and Firefox as well. IE6 is a real piece of shit as far as following standards when rendering web pages.

Unfortunately there are still some things I have to use IE for. For some reason I always have 'missing plug ins' with Firefox

Me too. I use it for two things: 1) sometimes when I try to access my online banking, FireFox freezes logging in and 2) our iManager system which controls all of our Novell printing queues looks better in IE. It works in FireFox, but instead of fields with drop-down menus, it displays everything in long lists

The novelty has faded

I'm using my 20,000th post to go back to singing praises of Mozilla Firefox. Sure, IE7 looked sleek and attractive initially. But it doesn't seem as customizable and convenient as Firefox. I've just been exploring the toolbar options in Firefox and there seems to be so much you can do. There IS a "new tab" button that you can put there, which I didn't know about till now. The buttons can be made big or small, with text included if needed. There's extensions, themes etc. etc. So yeah...

What font do you guys have it set to? I hate the new font. Everything looks like I'm reading a term paper .

I also think the writing looks kind of blurry.

edited to add: I think I fixed the font problem by turning off the "clear type" option.
