This has however coincided with other problems on my PC and I am not sure it is IE7 to blame. Anyone else seeing performance issues with IE7?
Just to make sure it wasn't something with my machine I loaded the same page in FF even with IE still running in the background and it worked fine.
Perhaps it's just very large pages it can't handle properly?
Today, for the second time, I decided to load up ie7, and then removed it. The first time was a few months ago. I have an ie5.0 and is5.5 simulation that the ie7 takes over. I try to load something in the simulation and ie7 grabs it.
AOL Explorer uses ie crap. Dose anyone know if it is ie7? I’d like to be able to test in ie7 and ie6.
Anyway, I’d like to vent about MS but I doubt anyone here is a MS fan. Why can’t MS just use Mozilla source code? They stole all the Firefox formatting ideas anyway, why not just take everything and give the web development community a break? It’s a challenge just getting ordinary people to understand the difference between an e-mail address and a domain name. We shouldn’t have to worry about a software monopoly mass distributing faulty garbage that makes us look incompetent because they can’t code according to documented standards for their 80k per year.
From clicking the IE7 icon to first page rendered takes 10 seconds, for comparison Opera takes 7 and FF 8s.
For general browsing between pages Opera 'feels' by far to be the quickest, IE and FF are very similar, but I do have a lot of FF extensions installed.
Looking at memory usage with one open tab, IE- 31M, Opera - 23M, FF - 38M.
I haven't used IE7 heavily, I find myself using Opera more and more, but I haven't seen it crash, unlike FF2 which seems to hate PDF files!
I think they still have some work to be done on this.
