I (and many of you) have tried IE7 by now.
Although it is more secure, I find 2 things irritating (so far):
- It doesn’t have a menu bar by default. Yes, Windows Media Player is similar. Yes, MS want to make things as non-technical as they can. Yes it means they can put IE7 into settop boxes, mobile phones, and kitchen sinks, without confusing ordinary people. Yes, you can easily put it back (I got it back on my 5th or 6th guess).
- You can’t move the various “bars” around. Most of you are used to having the menu bar at the top, just below the window title. But I cannot move the @#$%*& bar anywhere. In fact, I don’t seem to be able to move much at all. In fact, to move the menu bar to its “rightful” place, I need to edit the registry (which very few people are game to try). To fix it, just do a google search on: moving ie7 “menu bar”
I hope IE7.01 will address these problems. Not that I care much, since I use Maxthon, but because its going to confuse a lot of people.
