Anyone download I.E.7?

I heard lots of people had trouble with this upgrade and I haven't got a free machine to try IE7 on yet. If you've downloaded it, let me know if the pages here are rendering ok.

BTW, Microsoft sent Firefox a cake because Firefox 2.0 also shipped.

I'm typing this from Firefox 2.0 and for those who have asked for spell check (many many many many years now) Firefox has it built in. Fixed a couple typos right in this post. Pretty cute. Upgrade to Firefox 2.0 here

I purposely have not upgraded since I'm sure there will be some bugs to fix. Isn't there always with new releases? So I'll probably wait until after the first of the year and see how it is recieved by others first.

Does the firefox work with this forum only or will it be integrated into all areas of my computer?

I downloaded the firefox. It's pretty good, I don't use it all the time. It does show spelling errors but doesn't help you fix them. Now that would of been cool! Does some cool things with the mouse and scrolling. And it does seem faster too! I just can't figure out how to save images with it yet. I'll keep playing with it and maybe someday I'll master it!

Right click the underlined red word and it offers alternatives. Click on the one you want. If the word is not in the built-in dictionary, fr example, BigRedPayne, just click "Add to Dictionary" and it won't ask you again.

Right click, "Save Image As".

Thanks Gilbert! I'm getting old and it's hard for this old dog to learn new tricks sometimes. Even the simple ones! I sometimes forget there is a right click! LOL Appreciate the help! I will definately put it to use.

Haven't bothered with IE 7 yet, and I won't until we upgrade at work.

I prefer Firefox also. Lots of good and useful plugins(though my Abe Vigoda status no longer works). I love the new spell check feature.

Now, I just need for the View Formatted Source plugin to get fixed for 2.0.

The only thing I like about IE better is that is much easier to copy and paste table data into Excel(you need a plugin for Firefox).

funny thing, today my computer updated itself through ms update.... it called ie7 a critcal update and downloaded it automatically and then asked if i wanted to install...
sooo.. i have it now, and it looks good, i especially like the way it makes the type easier to read, i have a dell ulrtasharp flat display with an nvidia geforce video card and it really makes a nice web display with that upgrade.. i do like the tabs also, so far no problems... alo the zoom feature on the browser window, gotta love it...

Yes, I decided to download it after updates recommended it. I like the graphics, and the way favorites are done better, but it took a while to get used to. The zoom is nice, too.

I have had it for quite some time now and no problems whatsoever, just had not noticed this post lol
They incorperated the tabbed browsing, simplified the clearing of files ect.., let you choose your search provider not bad all in all.
