      Well - I wouldn't say IE7 is great :)

      Firefox is way better - and not in beta...

      Chris.

      Thanks Chris for the great info on merging Yahoo Beta with IE7. I
      am computer illiterate however I did figure out how to merge the old
      IE6 into the registry editor. Now I have this great IE7 interface
      along with the Yahoo Beta Email which I think is also great...just
      has a
      few kinks here and there. P.S. for those of you (like Me) who
      didn't quite get what to do...open up the below .reg file and save
      it to your desktop. then go to RUN and type REGEDIT to open up your
      registry editor. Click on Files and Import and chose the file you
      previously saved...and tada! BetaEmail works!
      Thanks again
      Janet
