There are also people with Windows 2000 who cannot install IE7 and later, as it is not available.

I am afraid IE6 will not dissapear quickly
We do that at work. I've been using IE7 for quite some time and I have yet to run into an issue though.

I just gave this a try and yes after closing the window you can reopen, click restore last browsing session, and all of the previously visited sites are present by the back button.

i wonder how many updates and stuff it takes to make this safe

so i have understood this is faster than both IE7 and FF i use FF 3.07 adn i feel it is taking alot of memory although it shouldnŽt if i have understood it right.

so i guess iŽll get rid FF and go IE8

also from one thing to another does anyone know if yamicsofts vista manager is a good app or just BS ?

see ya take care

IE8 is very slow according to that Futuremark bench thing.

Usually I'm a pretty big fan of IE, well, at least to the point where I think a lot of differences between the browsers is pointless; but IE8 crashes like mad for me, I'll actually have to switch to FF

I only have one.

If I deselect a toolbar, in order to reselect it I have to reboot. Just restarting IE doesn't work, the toolbar I deselected stays grayed out until I reboot.

I think maybe a reinstall is in order later. Right now not a big enough issue to go through the trouble.

Still very happy with it.
