    "Who needs FireFox now that IE7 has tabs?"

    June 28, 2006  |   By ramsj900

    Pros

    Yes the tabbed browsing is copycat, but it is what the public wants so no browser can be without it. Who cares who had tabs first.

    Like the easy magnification button on the bottom left of the status bar. One or two clicks and I am at 125%, 150% then one more click and back to normal. Really helps with all those crazy "designer sites" with the tiny text and interfaces.

    Runs fast with the anti-phishing filter off since I never have been sucked into those sites anyways. If I am not sure just click the icon and IE7 will check that site and return to the off position.

    So many sites I frequent require IE for the Active-X including WellsFargo.com and HP.com I always hated IE6 for the multiple window BS, but I must say I use FireFox less and less on my machine with IE7

    Cons

    Toolbar layouts are generally unimpressive, but maybe some creative types will make some cool skin.

    Some high security sites don't recognize the browser yet, but that is fixble between and final release
