The new internet explorer came to BETA testing quite a while ago now and I personally think it is quite a vast improvement. I think it is becoming more like Firefox with the tabs and RSS feeds. I have also noticed that the startup time is quite a bit faster. Unfortunately some of the icons look terrible and in the Beta stages it is still crashing quite a bit, but I have noticed one thing it never crashes the whole pc it just comes up with a error report, which is a improvement.
There are still those moments though that you just have to switch to firefox and I hope they will go soon.
I am interested to hear what you think.
