A Brief Review of Internet Explorer 7

I finally worked up the courage to upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 tonight. Anyone using Firefox isn't going to be much surprised. IE7 supports tabbed browsing, RSS feeds, and has a search box.

My first impression is not good. Some of the problems I encountered and solutions:

Somehow, the menu bar had disappeared, and I finally got it back by hitting F10. You also have to go to View->Toolbars and actually select Menu Bar for it stay put.

If you see blurry text when you're browsing, go to ClearType Tuner to fix it. You'll need to install an ActiveX control to use it.

I do like the built-in RSS reader except it crashed when I tried to subscribe to a feed. On the plus side, I did subscribe to the feed.

Now, if I could only get the tabbed browsing to work.
