IE7 and CSS Support

firefoxI see IE7 is available for download. I don't dare download it myself, but I've seen it in action and there are honest to goodness tabs at work. This IEBlog entry is from August, but if Microsoft delivered what they promised, many of those horrible CSS interpretation bugs from IE6 have been fixed. This is good news.

I can't tell you how often I'd use valid CSS for an effect that worked perfect in Firefox but was completely ignored in Internet Explorer. Of course, IE6 is still out there so we still have to code for those poor souls, but there is now a little light at the end of the tunnel.

I mentioned I haven't installed IE7 myself. At some point, I'll have to install it for development purposes, but as far as my personal use, I have no interest in leaving Firefox. There are many extensions I now rely on to get through my browsing day. I can't imagine life without Adblock. Firefox + Adblock = An ad-free torontomike.com.

Those of you running XP SP2 who refuse to ditch IE, I urge you to try IE7. The rest of you should get Firefox and try a few of my favourite Firefox Extensions.
