Internet Explorer 7

In case anyone is interested, IE7 Beta 3 has the look and polish of a finished product, and represents a substantial improvement over Beta 2. It's well worth the download if you're currently running Beta 2.

Gotta try it. I'm using Windows new Office beta. Everything is remote. Very little stored on your local machine. Clean new interface.

Take a look at just one feature of the Mac OS. Remember...this is free. It comes with the OS.

http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/timemachine.html

Watch the keynote address and see what is going on.

http://www.apple.com/

The new quad xeon Mac is cheaper than a Dell and comes with a ton of the best software on the planet.

The integration of hardware and software is second to none.

You can run Windows on it if you like. What you will find is that you will rarely switch out of OSX, however.

I run on a G4 Powerbook currently in an all-PC environment in the tech biz.

OK.....enough evangelizing. Just don't reject the idea until you know what you are missing.

Until the last year I used only IE browsers, but last year I discovered Maxthon (.com) and its system of tabs is far superior to IE or anything else--especially the apple stuff (it is for worms only). When Beta 7 came out earlier this year I downloaded it immediately and eagerly started using it. But I am back using Maxthon because it is an excellent browser, and is especially useful for forums like this. I can have 100 named tabs open at any one time, and just a single click away from any thread that I have looked at since opening the browser. I have tried and tried to get IE7 to do anything like that w/ their new "tabbed" system, but have found no way to make it work like Maxthon.

BTW: Maxthon is free at maxthon.com! Try their WeatherBug too. It is a great little utility!!

Doesn't anyone realize that IE in ANY version invites in viruses quicker than a sick two dollar whore with a pus dripping festering cunt? I'll stay with FireFox, Thanks.

"...invites in viruses...!?" That's just plain stupid! If anything IE is the most bullet-proof of all Windows-based browsers. FireFox is ok, but so is a Chevy. I prefer Mercedes in my cars and browsers.

The free version has a lot of adds, but have never had a problem w/ spyware. Besides, I run Windows Defender (Beta 2) which seems to look after my system quite well.
