Today I got ad ad on search.yahoo.com.
Yahoo suggests me to upgrade to Internet Explorer 7.

Before to update I would like to get an opinion here...

I'm getting that message for 2 weeks maybe - not sure though. i tried to upgrade, but, due to a network problem, it couldn't install properly. tried the second time with no success. IE doesn't work now. I'm laisy and I'm using opera instead of installing windows again.

Yahoo were distributing a customized version of IE7 (based on an IE7 Beta release) before even Microsoft were promoting it to end users. If you had installed the earlier version of Yahoo's IE7 then you should upgrade to the final version.

If you don't have IE7 at all, then you should get the official version from Microsoft unless you really want the custom one with Yahoo toolbars/features.

I installed IE 7 from Yahoo last week and it had the effect of distorting my HTML text. Verdana was particulary bad, it created a shadow on the text and made it bolder, so I uninstalled back to IE6 and the problem disappeared.

Will probably obtain IE 7 from Microsoft direct at a latter date. Looks as though Yahoo's version is still bedding in?

Yes, it's even suggesting us poor users of Windows 2000 should update to 7. That's just rubbing salt in the wound...

Several major software companies are suggesting people NOT move to IE 7...Quickbooks and Seibel I remember offhand, but there were others.

It is, as will surprise nobody on earth, "compatibility and standards compliance as defined by Microsoft."

>>Made my sites look like horrible.

That's the very reason I installed it - to see what my website looked like ( thankfully it looked the same as IE6).

I also thought it was an improvement.
