    I Love IE 7

    I don't know how many have upgraded to the new IE &, but it has several new features. Most are just niceties, but it has one that I have wanted for ages- spell check for web messages. For instance, I would normally type a response to a question, then do a cut and paste to word, or Outlook, and run spell check. Then, after correcting all of the errors (I can spell, I just can't type). Now, I can just finish, run the web browser's spell check. No more cut and paste!

    I have always used the Google tool bar. It has had spell check on it for at least a year now. Where do you see spell check on IE7?

    AHHHH BAH HUM BUG.

    I will not have anything to do with IE 7. I have seen it crash too many systems. I use Firefox exclusively. 2.0 has a built in spell checker too.

    I use Outlook for e-mail, so I usually copy and paste it to a fresh document, spell check is automatic, and then re copy and paste. But that's just me.

    Another Firefox user here. Although, I commend IE 7 for adding tabbed browsing and other functionality.

    Thanks for the link but I keep a Dictionary at my desk, at my age I really don't care to much about misspelled words. With all the abbr. on the web anyway, and since it isn't life threatning, who cares. Not me.

    Firefox here. Switched from IE, and will never go back.

    Another Firefox user here. I haven't used IE since I discovered Opera six years ago (I love tabbed browsing).

    I've got Firefox as my primary browser. I only use IE (6, I have 7 but don't use it) for the rare sites that don't work with FF. Most of those I use the IE tab add on (displays the page with IE in a Firefox tab).

    There are several Army websites that don't work with Firefox, otherwise I probably would have deleted IE by now.

    I mostly use Linux at home now. IE is not an option there.

    I'm not impressed with IE7. I haven't seen it do anything that I haven't ween another browser do.

    My IE7 developed a serious issue recently: It doesn't load pages. Just sits there and churns.
