Why a lock? We're not talking about anything illegal, this is purely for information purposes only, and if no files are provided to the public it's completely legal .

Goto Tools > Internet Options

Then click the settings button in the tabs section of the general tab

There is a section called "When a popup is encountered" - pick always open in a new tab.

That's what I use and I never get popups opening in a new window. Always in a new tab.

Ah, I see, it's not entirely obvious is it? I thought that was for actual popups only.

Hmm, that could be cause of XP 32 bit. I can assure you that IE7 on Vista RC2 X64 is blazing. I've tried all kinds of pages that weren't cached and almost everyone loaded instantely.

IE7 was looking a bit nice until Firefox 2 totally trumped it IMO. And firefox 2 will probably see the light of day before IE7 will.

I am using both IE7 RC1 and FF 2 RC 2. I really enjoy both and find they are actually fairly similar.

I used the original FF a while abck and simply didn't like it. I have IE7 now and I think it is much better. I will be using this for some time.

Well there are a ton of things in firefox that IE7 doesn't have, for example the spell checker which actually works well unlike previous spellchecker mods that have existed for both firefox and IE.
