Internet Explorer version 7
· 2006-10-20 08:05 by Thijs Kroesbergen for Brokenwire.NET

Yesterday I installed the brand new internet explorer 7.
IE7 logo
Things I like about it:

  1. Fast startup time
  2. Tabs with a cool preview mode
  3. Supposed to be more standards compatible…

Things I hate about it:

  1. It’s IE (If you’re a web-developer you know what that means)
  2. WGA Check before installation is possible, really annoying. And if you can’t install IE7, what keeps you from ignoring IE completely and installing Firefox without any nags?
  3. Really annoying (== slow) phishing detection
  4. Even more annoying warning about my self signed SSL certificate. The warning itself is correct, but I cannot tell it I want to trust that certificate anyway. (With firefox I can tell it to trust that certificate, so I only get the annoying warning once)

Wel.. Check out for yourself:
