No lie. Only reason I looked at it is because will probably have to go to it
at some point (sites that don't work with Firefox that we have to use).

And it blew up again a little while later with some stupid error about the
Macromedia plug-in, of all things !

Looking REAL good so far :-)

Have you downloaded Mozilla Firefox 2.0 ? It was due to be released today
but the "check for updates" isn't finding it yet.

Wow, that didn't take long. Installed it last Friday and didn't use it

Ditto for yesterday. Playing around with it a bit more today and had about

an
error report to Microsoft.


Thanks for beta testing IE7 for us, Chuck!  Really appreciate it.  ;-)

And it opens up an Online Crash Analysis in Mozilla Firefox :-) :


???????????????  IE7 crashed Firefox?  Wow, M$ is getting really aggressive
now, aren't they?

<snip>

So WHY didn't it just TELL me I needed this rather than blowing up ?


You sound surprised.  Chuck, Chuck, Chuck.  The proper way to address this
would have been to have the IE7 install app to automatically download and
install the latest Flash or at least notify the user to do so.  But this is
Microsoft we're talking about, hence things will blow up in your face.  Was
there anything in the IE7 release notes about plugins?

Got any other IE plugins?  Might want to check for upgrades for those as
well.

The only thing that would compel me to upgrade to IE7 is if M$ stopped
issuing fixes for IE6.  I dunno if M$ has indicated an end-of-support
directive for IE6; I figure I'll hear about it from one or more of the
newsletters I subscribe to.

<sarcasm>  Can't wait for Vista!  </sarcasm>
