After a week, I’ve uninstalled the IE7 beta. There were no big problems, just a feeling that things weren’t quite right – some pages that wouldn’t display correctly, some Java and Quicktime plugins that misbehaved. But more importantly, the interface didn’t grow on me. The tabbed pages were more confusing than convenient; the home button just shouldn’t be off to the side.
I’ll miss the RSS reader and I’ll come back for the next release. The good news is that the public beta of IE7 uninstalled cleanly (unlike prior IE7 beta releases) and IE6 reappeared without a hitch.
