I couldn’t resist the temptation to switch. And switch, I did. From Internet Explorer 6 to Internet Explorer 7. My initial reaction: “Things are not where they used to be!”

Now I have unwaveringly used Internet Explorer since the days of Windows 95 and I can’t use a different browser even in my dreams. I can click my way around Internet Explorer 6 blindfolded, but with Internet Explorer 7 my blindfolded clicks would lead to chaos. Because, things are not where they used to be.

That said, I think Internet Explorer 7 is a cool browser.

I don’t like IE7. Its just as slow as IE6. Even though it has tabs, you actually feel like these are different windows coz switching between them takes the same amount of time.

It also screwed up some fonts on my system.

IE7 i thought looks cool. Have not used much to comment on its speed but my company has prohibited IE7 quoting some security reason. As if it is very secure without it.

My first reaction was … Wow, its cool. But the layout being completely modified, its getting a bit messy. Anyway still not planning to switch from my current browser Maxthon to IE7.

Jesus Christ! Maxthon? G…which planet do you live on? And don’t get me started on Gaim.

Hey Gaim is one real good client. See, the logic is that it allows me to connect to Google, Yahoo, Jabber, MSN all at once. I dont have to run multiple IM clients on my already cluttered desktop. Yes, it does not come with the frills that each individual IM client has. But it serves the purpose and does it well too. But what it really lacks is a good smiley theme or emoticons [whatever].

You and your open source software. Yesuve!

Goutham, my friend, I spoke too soon. Maxthon has actually been featured on the Scoble Show! You might want to take a look (I know with a smirk on your face). Hah!
