    Internet Explorer 7 Is Out Today
    I just got IE 7 here. This is the release version not beta. It looks pretty good and took about 50 mins for the download and install on DSL. It allows you to set any SE as default in the little search box. All and all I'm a Firefox user thats impressed.

    Had to dl it on my laptop since I can't dl on my main since I can't get SP2. My laptop is on dial up and it took less than an hour and a half. Now it's downloading updates and installing, not sure how long that is going to take.

    20 minutes for the download. They seem to have the favicons showing at last.

    Alright looks good for the few minutes I checked it out. I wonder if there will be any noticeable change in SE usage with how the default is setup. MSN Live Search is the default search in the box in the upper right and you have to manually add Google or another SE if you want it as an option or to change the default. I guess you can get there the normal way or still have the Google toolbar.

    Ok, IE7 installed and running. I immed went to my stores and all is well, no red x's appeared like they did in the beta.

    I like the final version.

    Dial-up wasn't that bad for my download, roughly 1hr 10 mins.

    IE 7 uses Add Ons instead of Extensions and here is one to get called Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar There is no since me listing the features, but there are some very nice ones.

    Outline tables, table cells, images, or selected tags
    This is one of my favorites in Firefox and it's here also.

    Trust me no product will ever be bug free but IE 7 is as close as they get. Most of the bugs were squashed in RC1.

    Took me 1 minute to download on cable 15Mbps down

    The first thing I have noticed is the super fast page display. But it's a little blurry????? Anyone else notice?

    Still not too impressed, from a programmer point-of-view, I still prefer FireFox.

    There were some DHTML and CSS bugs on IE 6 which were critical to be fixed, still not done yet. What the heck are they doing at Microsoft????

    It downloaded fairly quickly, with my cable modem connection. It took a while to install (and there was no meaningful progress bar).

    I don't love it, and I am annoyed that the Google Toolbar cannot be merged into the blank space in another header section. Apparently the "home" button in IE 7 *must* be at the right side of the page, and that button and related icons CANNOT be moved away from the "tabs" line; and there appears to be no way to shift the Google toolbar (with my "bookmarks") to the right side, so it's going to be an annoying transition. In short, IE 7 appears less configurable than IE 6.

    I think the "tabs" take up too much vertical space - definitely a lot of unnecessary white space vertically. (I do like the "tabbed browser" concept, of course, but wish the

    And now I need to go test the QuoteProducts web site, and my personal web sites, to see if there are any special issues.

    The only issue I've seen with it and I had this issue with the beta's also - I can't view my reports at Performics. I can get links from there though.

    I had the same problem with the beta version and ie 7.01 doesn't work with Performics either.
    I'm glad I've a dedicated PC for my stats with ie6.

    That would have been my cable connection (not my dsl connections) at 2.7MB (average speed). I can't imagine why people would still be on dialup if they are in an area with even dsl.

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to upgrade -- thanks for your input about downloading IE7.
    (Yes, I am still on dial-up and I am "in love" with my original cybername -- I never want to let it go ... I believe I can hold onto it if I upgrade to DSL with my Internet Service Provider -- but when I heard of some people having difficulty with DSL, I started to lose confidence )

    Would you care to elaborate upon that? I'd be interested in reading more from a programmer's perspective. Thanks
