Internet Explorer 7

I saw something today that suggested that IE7 will be pushed out as a “high priority update” with Microsoft’s patches for Patch Tuesday. I sincerely hope this is not true. As a web developer who has seen CSS code not work as intended with IE7, I really hope it’s not true. I haven’t had enough time to fix my code yet.

That said, I really do like IE7. I’m really happy with the layout. I really like the “mini-tab to open a tab” thing. Most people are unaware of how the printing engine of IE7 has changed, but it brings the welcome addition of scaling to page. In fact, the only thing that is simply KILLING me about IE7 is how the Refresh button is on the right side of the address bar, and apparently, unmovable.

Other than that, IE7 gets a big thumbs up from me. I just hope they don’t push it too soon.
