The Internet Explorer Blog question: IE7 Is Coming This Month...Are you Ready?
My Reply: I’m ready, but is IE7?
I thought better check how this site looks so installed IE7 RC1. This blog seemed to render Ok, apart from the banner image not rescaling when you zoomed, so hopefully there will be no blog updates required – thank-you TypePad!
I found several web-related applications were un-usable but maybe they are waiting for the final version before issuing patches. What was more disturbing was I found the browser itself was flakey. Tool-bars would not stay put when locked. The main IE toolbar (home, print etc) died: click the button & no response. I had to enable the menu to get access to basic functions.
After that experience it's not a release I'll be rushing to install.
One good finding: XP System Restore works great so IE7 is gone & I’m back to IE6.
