The One with the Thoughts of Frans

I like Internet Explorer 7

I’m not being sarcastic here. I like Internet Explorer 7 because it has some kind of built-in protection from installing itself. If it would include a third button to directly install Opera, I’d love it.

Internet Explorer 7 requires an additional 27559 MB to install.



  1. Does Microsoft have an address for product improvement suggestions…? 😉

  4. i forgot to mention, it has to be taking the piss want that amount of space to install right? just think about it for the moment though…a lot of people (ie students) have been buying laptops and laptop hard disk capacity isn’t exactly amazing so surely they are just decreasing the market that microsoft can target or something?

  5. Well, actually I managed to install it now. I tried it this morning after rebooting and it didn’t work. But a few hours ago after starting up again I tried once more and then it did work. So either way, Microsoft has some kind of bug going on. Aside from that, I’d also like to be able to install it on a different partition for example.

    As for Internet Explorer 7 itself, it’s ugly, it still attempts to enable ClearType for webpages specifically, the IE icon is uglier and it’s still as slow and buggy as ever.
