I tried it out on my Mom's computer and I see that Microsoft copied the Avant browser look  :-\ The Tabs look like the default look of the tabs on Avant.  ??? Why is this? Plus there using Yahoo instead of Google as a search!

They use Yahoo, because they don't have a contract with Google. Google seems to be more and more tough competition voor MS on the Internet services...

If you click the drop down next to the search button there is a get search providers link, click that and you can then add google to your search engines and if you wish make it default

Trust me IE7 can look like anything else, but it doesn't look like Avant browser. IE7 is pure Vista (Longhorn back then) styled browser, and using its space far more efficiently than any other browser out there. Visible space (active web page area) is much better resolved, so you are able to see much more of a web content on a page.

Also, from the designing point, I really don't see where those two meet...

Avant browser:


IE7 (Vista environment):
MB: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H Intel 7 Series  - LGA1155, CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K - Quad Core, 3.40GHz (3.80GHz Max Turbo), CPU COOLER: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Direct Heat Pipe R2, RAM: 16 GB Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3, VIDEO CARD: Galaxy GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 1GB, GDDR5, POWER SUPPLY: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 - 750 Watts, HD: Seagate Barracuda - 2TB, 7200RPM, 64MB, SATA 6Gb/s

Exactly Sasha! Those 2 are totally different looking browsers and the IE 7 looks fantastic IMHO! I don't know how someone can say that Avant and IE 7 look the same ???

That's why it is still in beta, maybe MS should leave it in beta forever :-)

Thanks Charley!

I think all you geekyguys needed a geekgirl to put in her two cents . . .

And yes, essexboy, you've been very lucky. A bunch of stuff is broken still, but in different places than IE6- and the hacks for IE6, if they haven't been HIDDEN from IE7 will break stuff in IE7. I've been going nuts hiding >IE7 hacks for the last week . . . and I doubt everyone is as caring about their webdesign clients as I am. Of course, I really don't need the agg either when they do get around to upgrading their browser, if truth be told . . .  :)

Geekguys ... where???    ???

Anyway, geekgirls are welcomed here!    ;)    8)

I did not test Beta1 but I do have Beta2 and so far, the only problem I have had is that sometimes when I have more than one IE window open (which is more often than not), the last window I close will the slow to do so.    :(
The others close right away.    :)

Oh well, it is a beta after all. Have to expect some bugs in it.    :-\    :P    8)
