Firefox won't help, it has just the same features (that are actually quite helpful). You can set the search box to any search provider, like Google. In theory, everyone can offer his/her own search to be integrated in the search field, but I don't know why anyone would want to use that.

The tab field you are annoyed about is actually a useful feature, too. You can open new tabs by clicking on the empty tab, or pressing CTRL+T. You can also open a link in a new tab by just holding CTRL while clicking on the link (at least that's how it's done in Firefox). The advantage to opening a new window is that you have far less windows cluttering up your desktop and task bar.

Font antialiasing is a cool feature, but I do not know where you can set the settings for this (it doesn't look to well in the screenshot you posted).

The following open issues in Internet Explorer 7 might be fixed in updates of Internet Explorer 7. The information applies to all Microsoft platforms, unless specified that the content is unique to Windows Vista or Windows XP SP2.

Application Compatibility Toolkit Beta 5.0 Available--The Application Compatibility Toolkit Version 5.0 Beta (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/windowsvista/appcompat/tools.mspx) program is available for download through the Microsoft Connect Program. This toolkit, which runs on Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1, and Windows Vista, replaces the Temporary Application Compatibility Toolkit which supported previous Beta versions of Internet Explorer 7. The Temporary Application Toolkit is no longer available.

Citrix©--The CITRIX ICA Client ActiveX Control does not work when run in Internet Explorer 7 Protected Mode on Microsoft Windows Vista. The user will not be able to see the remote desktop in a webpage that is hosting the control. To work around the issue, the user can right-click the Internet Explorer icon and select Run as administrator. This allows the ActiveX control to run.

Hal Screen Reader and Supernova Reader Magnifier by Dolphin--These screen readers stop responding when users click commands from Internet Explorer’s file menu. These two programs are shipped with an older version of psapi.dll that causes the program to stop responding in Internet Explorer 7.
To work around this issue, follow these steps:

Go to the installation location for Dolphin Hal Screen Reader or Supernova Reader Magnifier.
Find PSAPI.DLL in the installation location for Dolphin Hal Screen Reader or Supernova Reader Magnifier and rename it to something else, such as PSAPIOLD.DLL. Do not rename the PSAPI.DLL file in your \\Windows\System32 directory.
Restart the computer.The program will find the new PSAPI.DLL in the \Windows\System32 directory and function normally. Users might wish to contact the software vendor website (http://www.yourdolphin.com/) to check for the latest updates.

Upgrading Internet Explorer 7 from a previous build (not uninstalling Internet Explorer 7 first) can leave the computer in a confusing state for users who require Assistive Technology programs--Assistive technology software that runs on Windows, such as screen reading software, might not be able to read the screens that appear while installation is being completed (after your computer restarts) because those screens are displayed before the assistive technology starts. When the installation is complete, your computer will restart again.

Starting Internet Explorer without incompatible browser extensions or malware--If you have incompatible browser extension or add-ons installed, or have symptoms of spyware or malware, use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES) to reset Internet Explorer’s settings. See Reset Internet Explorer Settings (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/06/12/628499.aspx) on the Internet Explorer blog for more details.

Resetting Enhanced Security Configuration (ESC) Defaults on Server Machine--If you reset Internet Explorer settings (as discussed previously) when ESC is turned on, Internet Explorer will reset to the ESC defaults. If ESC is turned off, it will reset to the standard defaults. Resetting Internet Explorer does not cause the state of ESC to be changed.

Accessing websites that only work with Internet Explorer 6-- Some websites host pages that are hard coded to read the User Agent string, and only accept the value for Internet Explorer 6. You can temporarily appear to the website that you are using Internet Explorer 6 by using the User Agent Utility (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=71879). The tool will create an instance of Internet Explorer 7 that emulates Internet Explorer 6. Other instances of Internet Explorer 7 will not be affected.

RSS feed detection button--Internet Explorer 7 uses a link in the HTML source code of a webpage to enable the feed discovery button located on the Command Bar. If a page does not have that link element, Internet Explorer 7 does not detect the feed. See the Internet Explorer Blog entry (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/02/10/529692.aspx) for details.

SharePoint--Windows® SharePoint® Services (WSS) cannot import spreadsheets when Internet Explorer 7 is running.

Accessing Microsoft Office files online fails to install (Vista only)--In previous versions of Windows, when you tried to open a Microsoft Office file online (such as a Word document), without having the program in office installed, it would be automatically installed. In Windows Vista, when running Internet Explorer 7 in Protected Mode Internet Explorer, the Microsoft Office installer is unable to start. Users can work around this by ensuring that the Office application, such as Excel or Word, is already installed prior to accessing Office files online with Internet Explorer, or you can use one of the following workaround methods:
Temporarily disabling Protected Mode Internet Explorer by following these steps:

From Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
Click the Security tab, and then clear the Enable Protected Mode (requires restarting Internet Explorer) checkbox. We recommend re-enabling Protected Mode once the Office file has been successfully accessed.Or run Internet Explorer as an Administrator by following these steps:

In Windows, click the Start button.
Click All Programs.
Locate and right click Internet Explorer in your program listing.
From the menu, select Run as administrator.
Click Allow in the User Account Control dialog box.Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004--If Flight Simulator 2004 stops responding after you have installed Internet Explorer 7, find the oleacc.dll file in the Flight Simulator folder and rename it to oleacc.old. Then restart Flight Simulator.

SAP GUI--You cannot use the SAP GUI with Internet Explorer 7. A fix for the issue will be available in patch level 20 of the SAP GUI for Windows 6.40 and patch level 64 for Windows 6.20.

GE Pathspeed ActiveX Control--An ActiveX control that is used on old versions of Pathspeed™ from General Electric (GE) prevents users from accessing ActiveX controls and generates the following message: "Security certificate has expired." This problem is fixed on newer versions of the Pathspeed product.

Microsoft Office Handwriting Recognition Service--If you have installed the optional Handwriting Recognition Service you might encounter the following issues in Internet Explorer 7 (on XPSP2 only). Please note that this service is not installed by default when Microsoft Office is installed. This release note does not pertain to the Tablet PC’s handwriting-input feature.

When switching tabs in Internet Explorer 7, the menus might become activated or quickly expand and collapse (this is a similar experience to when a user presses the ALT key repeatedly).
When you click on a tab, the menus become activated and the tab itself is not selected.To work around this problem, disable the On-Screen Keyboard component of the Handwriting Recognition Service:

Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Regional and Language Options.
Click the Languages tab.
Click the Details button.
Under Handwriting Recognition select On-Screen Standard Keyboard.
Click Remove.
Under Handwriting Recognition select On-Screen Symbol Keyboard.
Click Remove.
Click OK twice to save and exit changes.
Restart Internet Explorer 7.Freedom Scientific--When using Freedom Scientific JAWS® for Windows screen reader with Internet Explorer 7, you might encounter the following issues:

JAWS 7 does not display the contents of individual frames when a page contains a frame set. To work around this problem, copy psapi.dll from the \WINDOWS\system32 directory to the directory where JAWS is installed.
JAWS 6 and later reads incorrect information for Select Control with Say Line and Say Control Hot Keys because of the new Internet Explorer 7 Select Control. For more information on an update to Select Control, contact Freedom Scientific.
CTRL+F opens the Internet Explorer Find dialog box rather than the JAWS Find dialog box. To work around this, use INSERT+CRTL+F. This was fixed in JAWS 7.1.
INSERT+A does not move the JAWS cursor to the Address bar. To work around this, use ALT+D to set focus on the Address bar.Internet Explorer 7 and Outlook Web Access (OWA)--When a user logs out of an Outlook Web Access server, any other sites open in other tabs in the same Internet Explorer window might be logged out if those sites use cookies to establish logon sessions.

Toolbars that are incompatible with Internet Explorer 7
We highly encourage you to install/update to the latest versions of the toolbars that you have installed. We have been actively encouraging application owners to provide updates to their toolbars to ensure compatibility and many have already released updates that work great with Internet Explorer 7.
If you are having problems with Internet Explorer 7 hanging, crashing, silently closing or other bizarre behavior, an incompatible toolbar or other add-on maybe involved. The fastest way to determine if an add-on is causing the problem is to run Internet Explorer 7 with no add-ons. You can do this by going to Start, clicking All Programs, click

Accessories, click System Tools and click Internet Explorer (No add-ons). This disables all add-ons from loading in that instance of Internet Explorer. If the problem goes away, you can manually disable specific add-ons to find the specific one causing the problem. Below are instructions on how to manually disable a specific toolbar and a list of known incompatible toolbars that can cause serious issues with Internet Explorer 7.

To disable a toolbar open Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:

In Windows, click the Start button.
Click All Programs.
Click Accessories.
Click System Tools and then click Internet Explorer (No add-ons).Once you determine the toolbar causing the issue, you should uninstall the toolbar through Add or Remove Programs in Windows Control Panel and then check the toolbar’s website for an updated version.
The following toolbars have known issues or have updates available.

Google Desktop--Earlier Google toolbars could cause Internet Explorer 7 to stop responding when opening new tabs. You need to install the latest version of the Google desktop (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=71877).

MSN 1.02 Toolbar--The MSN toolbar version 1.02 causes Internet Explorer 7 to stop responding. You can download the latest version of the MSN Toolbar here (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=71880).

Microsoft Developer Toolbar and Internet Explorer 7--The latest version of the Microsoft Developer Toolbar runs correctly with Internet Explorer 7. You can download it from the Internet Explorer Download Page (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=71881). Previous versions of the Developer Toolbar do not display correctly on systems running Internet Explorer 7 and sometimes cause Internet Explorer to hang.

VeriSign i-Nav™ Plug-in--Users of the VeriSign i-Nav IDN Resolver Plug-in might notice that they are unable to navigate to Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) in Internet Explorer 7. This is caused by Internet Explorer 7 enhanced support for IDNs. To navigate to IDNs in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:

Open Internet Explorer, and then click the Tools button.
Click Manage Add Ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add Ons.
Find and click the listing for i-Nav browser extensions.
Under Settings, click Disable.RoboForm Toolbar version 6.3.96--Opening multiple tabs in Internet Explorer 7 with the RoboForm Toolbar might cause the browser to stop responding when it is used with Internet Explorer 7.

Cooxie Toolbar version 1.1.05--The Cooxie Toolbar might cause Internet Explorer 7 to stop responding.

Diodia Toolbar version 2.4.01--Internet Explorer 7 might stop responding when running this toolbar.

Ask Toolbar by AskJeeves version 4.0.1.1--Internet Explorer 7 might stop responding when running this toolbar.

Yellow Pages Toolbar version 4.0--This toolbar does not work correctly with Internet Explorer 7 installed.

Mojicon Dispenser--This toolbar can cause Internet Explorer 7 to stop responding.

Logos Word Toolbar--Internet Explorer 7 can stop responding if there are multiple tabs open with this toolbar installed.

Adelphia Toolbar version 1.2--Opening multiple tabs with this toolbar can cause Internet Explorer 7 to stop responding.

Website Connectivity Issues

SSL Changes--When navigating to an HTTPS site in Windows Vista, you might encounter a connection failure error page if the server does not correctly support the TLS standard. A description of the changes in SSL can be found in the Internet Explorer blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2005/10/22/483795.aspx). To work around this problem, follow these steps:

Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
Click the Advanced tab, and scroll down to the Security section.
Find and clear the Use TLS v1.0 check box.
Click OK.Proxy Connectivity--If you are on a network that uses a proxy server, and you notice slowness or a problem connecting to websites after upgrading to Internet Explorer 7, it might be due to web proxy auto-detection problems. To fix these problems, follow these steps:

Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
Click the Connections tab.
Under Local Area Networks (LAN) settings, click the LAN Settings button.
Clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
Click the Use a proxy server for your LAN check box.
Type the address and port of your proxy server.
Click OK twice.You will now be able to navigate to Internet sites.

Internet Connection Settings--If you notice a problem connecting to websites, it might be because the upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 changed your Internet connection settings from what they were set at in Internet Explorer 6. To work around the problem, follow these steps:

Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
Click the Connections tab.
Click the first entry in the Dialup and Virtual Private Networks list, and then click Settings.
Select the Automatically detect settings check box, and then click OK.
Repeat the previous two steps for each entry in the Dialup and Virtual Private Networks list.
Click the Lan Settings button in the Connections tab, and repeat steps 4-6. Click OK on the Connections tab.
Close Internet Explorer, and then restart it.Functionality Removed and Changed in Internet Explorer 7

Offline Favorites--Offline Favorites and Scheduled Offline Favorites have been removed from Internet Explorer 7. Internet Explorer supports RSS feeds, which provide scheduled updates to web content and offline reading of this content. For more information about RSS feeds, read the RSS Blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/rssteam/archive/2006/02/02/523555.aspx).

Scriptlets--Internet Explorer 7 disables Dynamic HTML (DHTML) scriptlets by default. (Scriptlets were phased out in Internet Explorer 5). They can be re-enabled by system administrators by changing the advanced settings in the Internet Control Panel. To change the setting, open Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options. In
Internet Options, click the Advanced tab, and then scroll down to find Allow Scriptlets. If you are a developer and your programs rely on scriptlets, we recommend that you use more efficient DHTML behaviors. Disabling scriptlets by default is done to deemphasize unsupported technology in Internet Explorer.

ActiveX controls--The new Internet Explorer 7 ActiveX Opt-In feature disables ActiveX controls on a user's machine. When the user visits a webpage that is trying to use a disabled ActiveX control, they see an Information bar to enable the control. Controls which were used in Internet Explorer 6 before upgrading to Internet Explorer 7, along with some pre-approved controls, are not disabled.

Channel Definition Format (CDF)--All CDF support was removed from Internet Explorer 7 and replaced with the RSS feed reading experience. Feeds that the user is subscribed to are available to other applications through the RSS Platform. For details, read the RSS Platform (http://blogs.msdn.com/rssteam/archive/2006/02/02/522642.aspx).

DirectAnimation--All DLLs to support the Internet Explorer DirectAnimation component were removed in Internet Explorer 7.

XBM-- XBM, an imaging format designed for X-based systems, is no longer supported.

SSL--Support for weak SSL ciphers was removed from Windows Vista and support for SSLv2 was disabled for Internet Explorer 7 on all platforms.

Windowed Select--The Windowed Select Element was replaced by Windowless Select in Internet Explorer 7. This results in some cosmetic changes.

BASE Element--Internet Explorer 7 strictly enforces the BASE element rule, as documented in the HTML 4.01 standard. We no longer allow BASE tags outside of the HEAD of the document. The standard specifies that the base element must appear within the head of the document, before any elements that refer to an external source.

window.opener and window.close--Internet Explorer 7 no longer allows the window.opener trick to bypass the window.close prompt. Browser windows cannot close themselves unless the windows were created in script. This security enhancement no longer allows browsing to a random site when the main browser window closes unexpectedly.

Changes that affect modal or modeless dialogs created from script--Modal or modeless dialogs created from script in Internet Explorer 7 might seem to be slightly bigger than their Internet Explorer 6 counterparts. This is caused by a change to the behavior of the dialogWidth and dialogHeight properties, which now set and retrieve dimensions of the content area of a dialog (from Internet Explorer 7 and later). It will no longer be necessary to calculate the area lost by elements of a dialog’s frame. Information on these changes will be posted on the Internet Explorer Blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/).

Generic Spoofing Risk Reduction in Internet Explorer 7--The window.prompt script method is blocked and the gold Information bar is displayed by default in Internet Zone for Internet Explorer 7. The helps prevent websites from spoofing things such as the logon screens of other websites. This is a new security enhancement for Internet Explorer 7.

WWW-Auth--Internet Explorer 7 changes the precedence rules for WWW-Auth. Previous releases of Internet Explorer used the first header encountered. Internet Explorer 7 uses the first header except when the header is Basic. Internet Explorer 7 uses Basic authentication if no other authentication mechanism is present.

HTTPOnly Cookies--HTTPOnly cookies can no longer be overwritten from scripts.

_SEARCH--The _SEARCH sidebar is disabled by default in Internet Explorer 7. It is now a setting and can be turned by checking Enable websites to use the search pane in the Advanced tab of the Internet control panel.

View Source--The view-source protocol no longer works in Internet Explorer 7.

Gopher Protocol--Support for the Gopher protocol was removed at the WinINET level. (Gopher support was turned off by default in Internet Explorer 6.)

window.external.ImportExportFavorites--window.external.ImportExportFavorites has been removed in Internet Explorer 7.

Telnet--The Telnet protocol handler is no longer supported in Internet Explorer 7.

SysImage URL Scheme--The SysImage URL Scheme has been removed from Internet Explorer 7.

Status Bar Scripting--Scripts will no longer be able to set the status bar text through the window.status and window.defaultStatus methods by default in the Internet and Restricted Zones. This helps prevent attackers from leveraging those methods to spoof the status bar. To revert to previous behavior and allow scripts to set the status bar through window.status and window.defaultStatus, follow these steps:

Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, click Internet Options, and then click the Security tab.
Click Internet or Restricted sites, and then click the Custom level button.
Scroll down to Allow status bar updates via script, select Enable.
Click OK until you return to Internet Explorer.Security Settings for Script Access to the Clipboard--New security-related updates for Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 include a change in the default security settings for Script Access to the clipboard. Sites using scripts to access the clipboard in the Internet and Trusted sites zones will receive a prompt that will inform the user that their clipboard is being accessed by script. The prompt will require user permission to continue. Giving permission will allow the website to save information to the clipboard, and read any existing information from the clipboard. This security setting is designed to help prevent the possibility of information disclosure through script access to the clipboard.

Installing Internet Explorer 7 with The Microsoft Windows Server® 2003 operating systems with Service Pack SP1 (SP1)--The home page will be reset to the secure page (res://shdoclc.dll/hardadmin.htm).

Upgrading from Internet Explorer 6 to Internet Explorer 7 on Windows Server® 2003 operating systems with Service Pack SP1 (SP1)--Users upgrading from Internet Explorer 6 to Internet Explorer 7 on Windows Server® 2003 with the setting Enhance Security Configuration turned on might notice that the machine will not be set to the correct Enhanced Security Configuration (Internet Explorer Hardening) defaults for Internet Explorer 7. To change the settings back to the correct defaults, an administrator should turn OFF Enhanced Security Configuration and then turn it ON again. To do this,

Open the Control panel.
Select Add/ Remove Programs.
Locate the Enhanced Security Configuration option.
Turn it OFF.
And now turn it ON again.Your server settings would be set to the correct Enhanced Security Configuration defaults for Internet Explorer 7.
Active Desktop--Active Desktop has been removed from Windows Vista. It is still available on 32-bit versions of Windows 2003 Server and Windows XP SP2 with reduced functionality. The following features have changed:

Synchronization of Active Desktop with online content is no longer supported.
The ability to restore Active Desktop if software or the operating system stops responding is no longer supported.
The Active Desktop item’s window does not show the title of the webpage (it shows the address of the webpage).
For a webpage restricted by Content Advisor, the Action Cancelled page is not displayed.

View source disabled for security reasons? Now that sounds like Microsoft was just a little too caring about security.

Joseph
22-10-06, 13:15
View Source still exists in Internet Explorer on Vista RC2.
Maybe they only disabled that in IE7 installed on XP?

Maybe they mean URLs like view-source:http://www.tombraiderforums.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=1304990 (not a link because this board would append another http:// before it). I have to admit, I see little point in keeping support for them anyway, so that would be a not bad decision of Microsoft.

Maybe they mean URLs like view-source:http://www.tombraiderforums.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=1304990 (not a link because this board would append another http:// before it). I have to admit, I see little point in keeping support for them anyway, so that would be a not bad decision of Microsoft.
I think they mean View Source as in (see below)

Overview

Windows Mail is the successor to Outlook Express

Windows Mail builds on the foundation of Outlook Express, adding a variety of new features designed to make your e-mail experience more productive and fun, while helping to reduce risks and annoyances such as phishing and junk e-mail.

Getting started

If you're upgrading from Outlook Express, Windows Mail can import your existing account information and e-mail addresses. The first time you start Windows Mail, you will be prompted to set up an e-mail account. If you skip this step and want to set up a new account later, click the Tools menu, click Accounts, and then click Add.

In addition to sending and receiving e-mail, you can use Windows Mail to read newsgroups, which are Internet discussion forums where groups of people gather to talk about common interests. To participate in a newsgroup (you can send a message or just read what other people are talking about), click Microsoft Communities in the folder pane. You can choose from a variety of newsgroups devoted to Windows and other Microsoft products.

To get help using Windows Mail, click the Help menu, and then click View Help. You can also get help from other Windows Mail users in the microsoft.public.windows.vista.mail (mhtml:{19300494-859E-4E9E-9F28-569DCC15E95C}mid://00000000/!x-usc:news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.windows.vista.mail) newsgroup.

New Features


Improved e-mail searching

To quickly search your messages in Windows Mail, you can type complete or partial words into the search box. You'll instantly get a list of all of the messages that contain those words. The list of results will show messages that contain your search criteria in both the headers and message text of your mail messages. <LI class=MsoNormal>For fast access to search, press CTRL+E to move the cursor into the search box. Press ESC to clear the search box.
You can also search your e-mail inbox from Windows by using the search box. Searching from Windows instead of Windows Mail will produce the same results: matches are based on both the headers and message text of the mail in your inbox.Junk e-mail and phishing filters

Windows Mail now includes Microsoft SmartScreen technology to help keep unwanted junk e-mail out of your Inbox. Suspected junk e-mail messages are automatically moved to the Junk E-mail folder.
The anti-phishing features in Windows Mail help protect against phishing messages, which attempt to trick you into revealing personal or financial information. When Windows Mail detects a possible phishing message, it allows you to view the message, but it blocks any links or dangerous content that might be in the message. You can choose to delete a message, or to allow a message that you know is safe.Communities

Windows Mail Communities let you rate the usefulness of newsgroup messages by clicking the Rate this Post button. This makes it easier and faster to find helpful, trusted information in busy newsgroups.
The Communities rating feature uses Windows Live ID to help ensure that the people who post messages in newsgroups are who they claim to be. (You can still utilize the Communities feature without using Windows Live ID.)
About Newsgroups

Using newsgroups

Windows Mail is about more than just e-mail. You can use Windows Mail to access Microsoft's Help newsgroups at msnews.microsoft.com (mhtml:{19300494-859E-4E9E-9F28-569DCC15E95C}mid://00000000/!x-usc:news://msnews.microsoft.com/) by clicking Microsoft Communities in the folder pane. These newsgroups allow you to ask questions and read answers from other people who are also using Microsoft products.
What you should know before you get started
1. Find the appropriate group.You'll find newsgroups covering most Microsoft products. Picking the appropriate newsgroup is the best way to receive the information you want. Select folders related to the product that you have questions about. For example, the group "microsoft.public.powerpoint" would be the place to go for Microsoft PowerPoint questions. For more information about subscribing to newsgroups, go to Help and Support and search for "subscribe to a newsgroup."

2. Browse before asking. If you have a common question about a product, chances are good that there is already an answer in an existing newsgroup discussion. By browsing the discussions you might find the answer you need so that you don't have to post the question.


3. Expand the list of responses. The responses to each question are displayed as a collapsed list to make the postings easier to read.. To see all of the answers to a question, click the plus sign (+) next to the message topic. This will expand the list so that you can see all of the answers to a question.

4. Good questions get more helpful answers. The more information you provide, the more likely people will be able to help you. For example, write a very descriptive title for your question. People will decide whether to read your message based on the title. A question with a title like, "How do I print multiple e-mail messages?" is more likely to get useful responses than a question with a title like "Help!" If you're having a technical problem, include the relevant details about the hardware and software that you're using. This information helps other people in the newsgroup replicate your problem.

5. Response time for questions. If you post a question to a newsgroup, other people in that newsgroups will often answer your question within 24 hours. If you don't get an answer within a day or two, consider reposting your question with a more descriptive title and more detailed information.

6. Mind your "netiquette." In a newsgroup, you encounter both anonymity and the inability to determine someone's tone, so it's sometimes easy to get drawn into heated discussions (commonly called "flame wars"). This can be compounded if you're visiting the newsgroup because you're frustrated by a problem in the first place. While it might be tempting to lash back at someone who posts a less-than-helpful reply, it does no good in the end. For a guide to the dos and don'ts of newsgroup discussion, see Netiquette 101 for New Netizens (mhtml:{19300494-859E-4E9E-9F28-569DCC15E95C}mid://00000000/!x-usc:http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=51301).

7. Who are MVPs? MVPs are experienced users of certain Microsoft products who use their expertise in answering questions from other users.

View Source works perfectly on all my computers using IE7.

All using XP Pro SP2.

Yes it works fine for me too.

I have used IE7 on Windows Vista.. After about 10 mins, I decided it was crap and installed Firefox :D

I do not read arguments in your post why you think it's crap. And i don't agree, i find it neat.

I just didn't like it somehow. Like all the options are crammed into dropdown boxes, like refresh.. and I didn't like the tab feature as much as that in Firefox.

EDIT: And I actually found Firefox to be faster, and IE was just as slow as it was in IE6.

The Refresh button is at the top at the end of the address bar or you can just press F5.

I know I can press F5, I just find it annoying at times.

Even still, I prefer Firefox (seening as I have using it for years so I'm used to it). I prefer how Firefox is defauly layed out and how the features are accesible.

Much people speak about Explorer or Firefox, I recommend Maxthon browser ( http://www.maxthon.com/ ) to you, it's really a very good one browser, has all type of plugins, blocking of pop-ups and possibilities :)

Maxthon is in my opinion (which is from the view of a website designer) no real web browser, only IE on steroids. It has all kinds of additions, but the rendering and javascript engine is still IE, with all it's drawbacks. That, of course, doesn't mean that Maxthon is a bad browser.
