Tried it yet? What do you think? So far, I like it. Kinda matches the style of XP a little better than 6 did. I really likt the tab feature.

Nah, I only trust Microsoft with one thing, it'* OS, and only part of the time at that :P
Download Firefox, my friend, and you'll see the light

I like IE7 a lot. Big improvement over IE6.

FF is for those who are click-happy.

I tried it out of curiosity, but a big FireFox fan. Hate the new layout, they tried to clone some FireFox features and didnt come close. And compared to FF it'* still bulky, slower, and still quirkey in some areas. Maybe the FF team out to write an operating system for Bill Gates Not impressed with clunky XP either, and what i've seen of Vista.... big f'in deal.

Shadow, Opera is a good browser. I just like that FF is in a format I'm use to and works almost seamlessly.
