CLARION CALL: IE 7 Not Ready For Prime Time

Before the end of the month, IE 7 is slated to be pushed to PC's everywhere.  It will be an automatic download. It isn't ready, Microsoft.  I've installed it with Windows Vista RC 2, and sites I use regularly are breaking.  Two examples:

  • The Globe and Mail: comment icons are shifted into the centre of the text.
  • WordPress Admin Console: the trackback form doesn't open completely. 

Either leave your dog at home, or make sure it's trained better before inviting it into my house to make a mess on my carpet. Please!

    Installing a beta on a beta – can't imagine why that didn't work.

    Didn't do that Mark. I am using the IE 7 that's in Windows Vista RELEASE CANDIDATE 2. Both of these products — the combined IE 7  / Windows Vista, and standalone IE 7 – are supposed to be gold this month. Moreover, if you're an IE user, it's just going to be installed automatically.  This is a problem!!!

    Do you really need IE7 ? :-)

    Why you insist on using this obsolete operating system and browser. Use any version of linux or MacOS.
