Has anyone else here tried IE7 beta 2? I have installed on a number of PCs of mine and noted the following side effects:

- screen fonts have changed noticeable. everything looks fuzzy and is hard to read. turning on Clear Type helps a bit, but not much

- most annoying ... fonts have changed inside applications ... e.g. outlook templates. took me a while to find and fix them

- web browsing is noticeably slower, particularly when scrolling down a web page using the window slider ... the rendering of the screen is sluggish ... probably related to the stupid font issue

That's progress (according to MicroSoft).

Have just received emails from the computer guys at work: ie Don't download IE7! Because they don't support it and it creates problems! :eek:

I actually agree with you on this one Howard. :eek:

I've been a longtime Firefox user, but recently have been using Netscape which has some of its own benefits.

And on the 8th day, he invented Safari

Particularly galling to the great unwashed would be the sub-head "get caught speeding" half way down the page. And you don't even need Quicktime to read :eek:



Go on. Read it. It won't cleanse you, but you'll be better informed :owned:

I have a question for the PC-clown-bots-macintent-dross-unwashed :)

When opening a web page on a PC, does a mac screenshot turn into a nasty thing that looks like it was created with Corel Draw 1.0 or icons that Andrew could draw? http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y105/scene66/greenrofl.gif

Of course, real Mac devotees use iCab or at least have it on their desktop for show. It's been in beta form for about 10 years and is maturing slowly. Its exclusive status is confirmed by its not even being mentioned in the Safari article. :evil: :doh:

PS This post was written using iCab. I also have Safari, Firefox and Opera - incidentally they all have tabs.

ahem ... :eek: Surely it's possible to be a Mac devotee and not have iCab as described? :whistle: I have a friend who has only just downloaded it :sheez: :)

Although I already know the answer to this question :uhoh: may I enquire as to the benefits of iCab. It doesn't accurately render http://www.sceneonline.com.au/phpBB2/ whereas as Safari and Firefox do a superb job. Q.

Creditable skin, aye!

Haha, nice joke Ian.

No Microsoft/Mozilla merger yet. http://news.com.com/2061-10805_3-6133025.html

Actually if you read the site Ian gave the link to you can't take it too seriously anyway, with Bill Gates' head popping out in the corner. ;)
