Hi
This version allows me access to these pages, but more importantly to CDR INFO.COM. Which I couldn't with previous version of IE 7.
Thanks for the pionter Silicon Freak.

Nice to hear that m8...

Btw...how it looks/works? I read above that it's "not intended to be a functional product for Web surfers"!?...so tell me more...does everything works...or/and what doesnt...?

I guess I'll wait for final version before installing it....but must say...that so far I have heard many positive things about IE7...soooooo...although IE6 isnt bad at all (at least I think so), but it will be nice to get some "new fresh wave" after long years with it (IE6)...

   Hi
Yes for the typical user it's probably more trouble than it's worth. Too buggy by far. Some very nice touches though. I for one can't wait for a fully working version. So for now limited appeal for those who either like a challenge or too much time on their hands.Try the tour http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie7/tour/default.mspx

Thanks!

I did a quick tour...and IE7 really has many nice new options....I like this "Tabbed browsing" - to have more sites displayed in one window....cause it's killing me as it is in IE6....(sometimes i have up to 30+ windows opened at one time....so you can imagine how messy it looks/works )...also RSS Feed is option is nice....and better security too (although we know how M$'s security works...well...let just hope it gets better in a years to come )...also overall new look/interface looks really cool....so all i can say is CAN'T WAIT FOR FINAL VERSION!

Cya around Zebadee...and have a nice day/night...

Interesting....so still some tweaking/fixing needed....but afterall...arent we all used to that (especially with M$ ).

Its still BETA....so they are exused for now....but it would be very dissapointing to experience such problems with final version...hopefully they'll fix all that until then...
