I downloaded ie 7 about a month ago. It takes a little to get use to but seems to be ok for me. the only problem I have with it is I get the error report that ask you to send or not send report than have to restart IE. but had that problem with all IE browsers..lol.

I have forgotten last when did I used IE. You should try out Firefox or Opera. Most people these days are working in Firefox. I was also using Firefox until I got hold of Opera. Other than normal browsing features like tabbed browsing it has RSS reader, Email client, widgets etc. So you don't need anything else. Moreover it is fast and secure and FREE too.

I use Firefox sometimes but IE6 is still my main browser, I noticed that many sites looks funny and kind of mixed up in Firefox, all web developers optimize their designs mainly for IE.. I will wait until they have a stable version of IE7 so far IE 6 is doing fine for me.

I am using it since last month and I don't encounter any major problems with it. I think it was better than the previous version which it should be and I think its faster then IE6.

Never used it, not even IE6 or IE 5. I only used Opera, Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox. that's about it. I personally don't like it. I heard that this new one is supposed to be more secure and stuff like that but I don't thrust them. Call me crazy but I play it safe.

I have switched to opera a week nack I find features like magic wand really useful in it. Got rid of the headache of remembering passwords and user names

I've been using IE 7 since it was in beta version. I love it and I haven't had any problems with it. To me it works a lot better then 6 did. I had a lot of problems with 6 and that's one reason I went to the beta version hoping it would be better and it is. I wouldn't go back or use another browser now.

I used IE7 for some time. But my experience was not so good with IE7. I faced many difficulties with it. Lot of settings changed after installation of IE7 and ultimately I uninstalled it and these days I am using ie6. I observed ie6 is littler slow but works fine.

I've been using IE 7 for about a month. I have had absolutely no problems with it at all, although I keep hearing more and more about other people's problems. Hopefully I'm going to be one of the lucky ones. From what I'm reading, though, if you haven't yet downloaded it, you might be better to wait a while until the problems are worked out. There were a few changes in 7 that took a little getting used to, but that was no big deal.

Well last month only I downloaded from mirosoft.com as fee offer for using genuine windows poduct, and since than I am using it. But, I didn't have any problem in using it. But I found more advantages than IE 6; like, a) Add-on disable mode opens IE window fastly without tool bars, Active X controls, etc. b) Tabbed browsing i.e., opening of multiple websites in a signle browser window. c) Zoom facility (like in acrobat) at the bottom right hand corner lets you enlarge or reduce the text and images. d) The new tool Phishing filter option helps to protet from phshing attacks, online fraud and spoofed web sites. If you are windows user with IE 6 than surely I advise you to download IE 7 and start using it. Before that surely read about new features, how to use them.
