Within the last week I’ve installed Internet Explorer 7 on two machines: my newly built dual core ASUS/AMD 3800+ up north in California, and an old Soyo/AMD 1800+ down here in Phoenix.
There were no thrills or surprises. I like IE7 just fine. I’m getting used to multi-tab browsing and I like it. I do not see huge functional or visual differences – everything is a little harder to find, but I’ll get used to it. My main motivation was security, in the hopeful belief that the new IE7 core should be more bullet-proof even before all the expected periodic patches and updates.
