I know that Firefox didn't introduce tabbed browsing; I was just taking a cheap shot at Microsoft by bagging on how crappy IE is right now, and that the next version of it will just be catching up to it.
All that other stuff (except for the gaming part) I knew. But that was a good, valid post and I thank you for it.
I didnt mean to take a shot at you personally. I understand why the attacks are coming at Vista. I have made more than my fair share of attacks at it for the AV/Firewall business that they are talking.
You are right M$ is playing catch up with IE7 but also with IE7 in Vista it will have 256Bit encryption which is far more powerful than any browser currently on the market. It will be 2x more powerful than it currently is for security against hackers.
Like i said i have personally tried all build from 5112 up to the current build of 5308. I have seen improvements along with downsides. Games still has its downfall right now since they dont allow for DX to be installed fully. They just have the components installed needed to run the OS. I havent even been able to get Doom 3 running on my Vista system yet.
5308 has many good points and bad points from what i hear so far. Explorer is still buggy as heck. With crashes more often then not. I havent installed it yet to try. Have plans that dont allow for me to install. But when i do i will make sure to post some screens and a review.
