The new browser wars

Having a few problems with the new Firefox 2.0 (which to be fair is still Beta) makes me look with renewed interest at the new Internet Explorer 7. Unlike Robin's less than laudatory review of IE7 the other day, Hamish at Polemic has reviewed both and is impressed enough by what Microsoft have done with IE7 that he's almost ready to go back to Bill Gates for his browser -- but note his comments here on security.

  1. Cheers for the link! I might get more than the usual 8 hits today :P!

  2. Autodesk have released a beta patch for their DWF Viewer which means might try again with IE7 this weekend.
