Just a warning that ie7 does not work with many many web sites. Sorry if this is old news.. I automatically downloaded it today after been prompted for weeks by the auto update thing and since I have been using it I have had so many problems with favourite web sites not working properly. In the end I did a google search on "ie7 problems" and there are 1000's of entries. Apparently even BBC sites don't fully work with it. This is not a dig at MS, although one is very much justified as this is such a wide spread problem, but a genuine warning. Yes my fault for running a PC I know... This is one site I found which said to stay with Firefox http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=102&threadID=208439&start=0 Internet Explorer 7 problems " By now it's no secret that IE7 breaks a lot of websites. What some people may not think about is the fact that, because IE is also a core OS library, a lot of apps will also be affected. They may fail, or they may function incorrectly/differently. I'd like to see this discussion develop into a reference list of IE7 issues and specific incompatibilities so that others can check here to help find, diagnose, anticipate, and prevent problems. My personal recommendation to all my clients is to stick with Firefox as their primary browser with the IEtab extension and keep a fully patched IE6. I've also warned them that MS is sending out IE7 as an update. This is an example of why I recommend most people turn off automatic updates and do weekly manual updates, choosing the 'custom' and not 'express' option. It's more work, but unfortunately, necessary."
