    it seems like, IE7 is more on negative side. As i read all the post, I never
    see any good feedback or good comment about IE7.

    Mine just uninstalled yesterday, hahaha.

    Try Firefox RC3, recommended!

    Well for one thing, people generally do not seek out a forum to post their
    happiness with something. It is usually for some kind of a problem or
    another. But, I still think that a lot of people are not happy with the lack
    of comtomization users are able to do with IE7. It's almost as if Microsoft
    just completely ignored user requests for features and usability. I am
    interested in when the new Firefox will be out. I'm hoping for some
    improvement there as well as it could also use some.

    Firefox's latest will be out Tuesday. It isn't much different on the outside
    but they have made some significant internal changes. One thing I especially
    like about it besides its customizability is that it will continue to be
    ported to Windows 98SE. Even though I've got XP I still prefer 98 for a lot
    of reasons and that allows me to keep surfing on it with at least some
    security.

    I uninstalled IE7 the same day. Luckily the Uninstall seemed to go very
    smoothly.

    I've been an avid IE user, evangilist, apologist, and developer since IE
    2.0. This version is sheer unadulterated crap. Save for the tabs... there is
    not a single innovation in it. "Favorites" bookmarking hasn't improved... in
    fact it's more laborious to use (why not implement it as a flyaway rollover
    pane like the toolboxes in Visual Studio?). The UI is absurdly
    non-customizable... and completely inconsistent with all other apps in the
    Windows world.

    Sorry MS... I can understand what you're trying to do in IE/Vista/Office...
    but the toolbar above the menu and the generall non-costumize ability is
    UTTERLY HORRID. Fire your managers, stop using "focus groups," and hire
    somone with UI brains and artistic merit to design your UI's. Your current
    crop of managers aren't cutting it.

    You're dead on about the favorites, who thought of that one? It's not really
    new as the side bar favorite center has been part of the browser for several
    versions now. The only difference is it's sort of being pushed on us by the
    fact the toolbar can't be removed to make more room for the traditional drop
    down menu. And in full screen that old menu doesn't even show so basically
    we're forced to use that side favorite bar. If you have folders several
    layers deep you're constantly clicking, which is very user unfriendly.
