Default IE7 market penetration

It has only been out a short while, but IE7 now has a browser user market share of nearly 30% in the UK and 18% in the US. Reported by Onestat.

Must admit that I'm surprised how quickly this level has been reached.

Me, too. Must you be running Vista to use it?

No, but one has to have at least Windows XP. I find it much slower to load than FireFox 2.

I think you have to have XP + SP2 even.

I like it now that I am used to TAB'd browsing which I tried with Maxthon and gave up.

Turn off the phishing "protection" and that speeds things up considerably.

>> XP + SP2

Yes. I installed it on a test machine the other day.

I'm wondering what happens if enough people decide to pound somebody's site by reporting it as a phishing site, whether or not it is.

I've done that (at your suggestion), but it doesn't seem to have made an appreciable difference.

Probably because it instals itself automatically. I didn't particularly want it on my PC but it told me I did so I clicked OK and there it was.

Default Automatic Installs by Microsoft

I have those automatic installs from Microsoft shut off. I forget where I did that. The Microsoft update checks once allowed the user to select what updates they made, but no longer, and I shut it off before that point.

There is an independent site that allows the user to control what MS updates are made, but I don't remember where that is. Perhaps another forum member knows.

Maybe I should shut it off too -- before they auto update my machine to Vista and give me 10 days to pay before it stops functioning.

You can still do that - just select the option for notify without download or install. Under control panel/automatic updates.
