I'm torn as to whether I'm going to keep this thing installed or go back to an image :)
IE7 brings us tabbed browsing - much better than the MSN toolbar did thank goodness. And some other niceties I'm sure. But here are the glitches I've found so far:
1) Yahoo mail thinks it is an “old” browser, so falls back to “old ugly mode.” Ugh. Granted, this is probably not an IE bug but still, it's not nice.
2) The toolbars are in the wrong order and you can't move them the right way? What? Maybe it's me. I've got the address bar on top, then the tabs, then the “pulldown” menus. And I can't move the menus to the top like “every other piece of Windows software in the world.”
3) The tabs are just plain UGLY.
4) Some of this may be caused by the IE7 not liking the MSN Toolbar :) It appears in the menu with no title. Just a “blank” entry. Good, I hated it anyway. I tolerated it for the tabs :)
But speaking of tabbed browsing - Can we get an option added that will warn you if you close IE while more than one tab is open? OMG how often have I closed the browser because I'm so used to “Open in New Window” instead of “Open in New Tab.” ARGH!
