Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 released
It's here!

Time to check your sites for compatibility, esp. if you have MSIE 6 hacks in place.

Will the install work directly over Release Candidate 1 - or should I uninstall that first?

If you don't it will uninstall for you, reboot and attempt to install the live version. The reinstall caused problems for me but I think that was local internet issues at a busy time.

May be safer (and take no longer) to uninstall, reboot and reinstall manually.

Installed fine, Works well, It's fast but I have issues with the GUI. I think it was too much change all at once.
If you know what you are doing, it's OK, but I dread the day my mother in-law installs it.

It worked fine for me. It was about a seven-minute upgrade process on my antiquated laptop, plus a reboot. Not bad. I'm going to have to join the minority here who actually like the new GUI. Actually I like it quite a lot, although the tabs are way bigger than they need/ought to be.

My sites look fine, although the text does seem blurry, even on the laptop's LCD monitor. I haven't had the opportunity to disable the ClearText thingy or whatever it is to see what effect it has.

Overall I like it a lot better than IE 6, but it's still nowhere near as good as Firefox or Opera.

I happen to like it. it is smoother and faster than Firefox. As of right now, I would even consider it a bit more secure. Blocks unwanted pops that Firefox could not had done. A++ for Microsoft.

How so?

I don't like the search bar at the top right, I'd rather use my google toolbar to search, so I can also see my pagerank too.

A lot of pops from those ad networks had been able to go around Firefox. In IE 7 never had a problem. Looks like Microsoft is finally getting their a$$ in gear with the browser wars. Only took them a decade.

IE7/Alexa toolbar problem?

Has anyone actually tried to configure Alexa toolbar options? The drop-down list that provides access to configuration options (beside the Alexa button logo) doesn't appear to work in IE7.

I removed all plugins, add-ons and toolbars before upgrading, then reinstalled after the upgrade, so perhaps this isn't a problem if the toolbar was carried over from IE6. I see this same issue on 3 different computers.

Not a major problem, but I'd be interested to know whether others can access Alexa settings -- couldn't find any mention of this problem anywhere, which seems strange!

Thanks XX

Although you should upgrade to IE7 because it's part of the OS, CNET does not recommend using IE7 for day-to-day browsing [news.com.com]

LegalAlien. I have been using IE 7 since RC1 and have now installed the latest version. I cannot remember when the Alexa settings problem started but I believe it was after the latest install.

I like IE 7, love the RSS feature.

I hate the menu bar below the address bar. It just not the way any application works. I also hate the Home button to the right of the tabs.

I really don't care because I use Firefox but I am dreading the calls from the family asking about cleartext and where the home button is.

I had a customer complain that my https pages did not show the "lock". Microsoft moved it from the lower right of the screen to the upper right next to the address bar.
