Internet Explorer 7 Released

The long overdue IE7 is no longer a beta. For those of us who need to test sites on IE6 and IE7 concurrently there’s a quick work-around which works up to RC1. It should technically work with this release. Does anyone find the new interface “easier”? I don’t.

One of the most interesting aspects of the IE vs. Firefox battle is the development of the ecosystem of extensions or add-ons. Right now firefox had a great advantage in this space but you can see microsoft trying to catch up.

Microsoft has a interesting partner in Trailfire, a recommended download for IE7. See link:http://www.ieaddons.com/SearchResults.aspx?keywords=trailfire

But this extension is also available for firefox. See link:https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/3524/

I think the ecosystem for firefox and IE will decide who wins this battle. What do you think?

I can’t be bothered with ie7. Of my experience with it, the only good thing is that it’s slightly faster than firefox to start up. Other than that it’s clumsy and feels like it’s been slapped together quickly.

Also has anoyone noticed that Microsoft is checking if you have a valid copy of windows before letting you install ie7? So much for a free browser. Firefox all the way.
