Thanks for the replies
Have installed the beta 3 IE7, and i must say i like it,, pretty snazzy ( or is it just cos it looks different !)
No, in all seriousness it is quite cool. The layout and tabbing is excellent,, plenty of good things to come with the final , finnished product.
Only thing i have noticed though, which is cheesing me off a lot, is, when opening up explorer, it takes anything up to 15 seconds to open up my homepage (google).
Once its open, favorites and web searches open up as fast as they ever did, its just the initial clicking on internet that takes time. Says "detecting proxy settings " at the bottom of the page,, but boy, does it take some time.
Is this a common bug with beta 3,, or is there a fix for this that i dont know about ???
So far, am quite glad i downloaded, gives me an idea what to look forward to later this year ( or next year, or the year after !!!! )
