Today I installed IE7 – all 14.8 megabytes of it.
Cannot say I am very impressed. It has amazing similarities to Mozilla Firefox. Tabbed browsing. Multiple search-engines on the one search-bar. Glass-faced header background.
What I regret most, and I don’t even know if I could have achieved otherwise, is that it installed OVER the previous version. If only I could have installed it alongside of IE6. Yes, IE7 might be considered better, but IE6 was simplistic, less cumbersome – despite all its attached spyware.
Didn’t Microsoft ever survey its users how many have their WindowsXP running in “Classic” view? The same applies here. It looks all ‘pretty’ – but it has nothing on the previous version. Absolutely nothing.
But I have it now, so I have to grin-and-bare it. Or do I? Anyone know something about the settings? It’s proven difficult to navigate through the help menu, let alone find the help menu.
