    Unsure

    Now windows update is like hey, you should update to IE7. i've been using ie6 this whole time

    i don't really need the tabbed browsing thing. i have maxthon, and it's a million times better than any form of ie standalone.

    should i update to ie7?

    i heard the cookies are all bunched into 1 file now... how does that work? how would you be able to use something like cccleaner and look at which cookies you want to delete?

    Can one uninstall IE 7 , You know using System Restore or Add /Remove Wizard ? That would be my big concern if I used Microsoft's browser alot . Just a thought tho .

    Sorry I meant revert back to IE 6 if you want . I learnt a long time ago not to fuck with peoples browsers, just give a choice and they'll decide .

    Yeah, Internet Explorer 7 Now Available to Pirates

    I love tabbed browsing. I had some problems with IE7 crashingn'stuff until I used their XP pre-beta SP3. Go figure.

    If you're going with IE7 then http://www.ie7pro.com/ addon is a must.

    You can uninstall IE7 from the Add/Remove progs.

    That'll revert you back to IE6. If you try to uninstall IE6 (or the original M$ outlook) thru Windows Components it'll only pretend to. That's just weird, but true.

    i think that IE7 is more compact than 6 and with a better interface. You chose what to use!

    does anyone know about the ie7 cookies thing? does it actually consolidate all cookies into 1 file?

    Can't MS leave a person alone? First it was Vista... Now its IE7.

    They are trying to force people to use the new stuff. I'm sure one day they won't allow XP to access the internet. They'll tell you to use Vista... sheesh!

    No, but there is always the Index.dat file for both IE6 n'7.
