I had a moment to play with the newly released IE7 http://www.microsoft.com/ie and I’m very impressed. Tab browsing is finally there. The RSS functionality is really slick and users can subscribe to a feed easily and without seeing ugly XML code. The favorites are now nicely organized(thank you, what took you so long?). Font scaling(resizing) has finally been fixed. So has transparent PNG files. It also seems IE7 is a lighter application and slicker than Firefox 1.5x. That’s a big plus. I believe IE has regained the #1 spot in the browser world. Kudos to the IE7 team!
