Internet Explorer 7: do you find it annoying?
March 11, 2007 7:42pm CST
There are some good features about Internet Explorer 7, like the tabs system: once I got used to it I find it works okay. But what annoys me about these updates is that the makers can never leave things in the same place! I have to go searching for the page refresh button every time, and the stop loading button. The favourites have moved completely, and there's a lot more room taken up at the top by the various toolbars, when in fact they could be mostly included in one or two lines. You wonder if IE8 won't have so much stuff in the framing that there'll be almost no page to see!

I've been using firefox for so long now, I haven't really even tried IE7. I was sort of turned off IE, when I read that they couldn't add tabbed browsing to IE6. Problem is there were a number of free third party add-ons you could get for IE6 that added tabbed browsing; Microsoft was just too lazy to do it themselves. Makes you wonder what else they are too lazy or incapable of doing. Since then I've never been an IE fan...

It took a second for me to get used to, mostly because of the stop button. I always use F5 to refresh anyway so that wasn't a big deal. I still use Firefox more often but I have played around with IE7 and I'm pretty much indifferent about it. As long as it's secure, that's all I care about.
