IE 7 Beta 2 - not quite ready for prime-time

So I downloaded IE7 beta 2, since the bloggers told me to. Hmm. Nice new interface - looks like they did something with ClearType perhaps, to make the fonts smoother? But then I realized that
  1. Grouper's start page no longer works
  2. IE7's pages have JavaScript errors
  3. Flickr's pages are messed up
  4. Poof - the browser closed on me without warning
  5. Uh - IE6 is gone. Sh!t.
Should have known better.


  • Other problems:
    - Yahoo Messenger fails with a security warning when trying to open an IM
    - Google Toolbar doesn't show on blank tabs
    - No easy way to make pages open in new tabs

    + Quick tabs (can be done with an extension added to Firefox)
    + Zoom (a la Opera)

  • WHY do new tabs take so long to open? In FireFox this is instant, in IE7 it's as slow as (or possibly slower than) loading a whole new window.

  • Man does the tabbing behavior in IE7 suck. There's no way to open a link in a new tab - what's the point?
