Much needed upgrade for IE. I am with firefox. If firefox is to get the lead there going to need more publicity to try and grasp the attention of non techies. I hope firefox will be read with another upgrade because bieng one step ahead of IE is what makes them awsome. Microsoft is to restrictive. People like the power to be able to make choices and custimizations.

There is no way I am gonna use IE 7. IE sucks. I'll take Opera of Firefox any day.

And I forgot that there will not be an IE 7 for Mac OS X, so even if I wanted it, that would put a damper on my plans

i dont hate MS. they just use anti-competitive tactics. i think the primary reason why theyll be releasing IE7 (browser for Windows Longhorn) sooner is that they're afraid that their precious browser would become a legend even before Win Longhorn be released because of Firefox.

I also use Firefox.
