- Feb 6, 2006Hi Laurie,
I didn't see this come by. I agree, IE7 is still in beta. I am running
a copy (only works on XP), but it has been stable and no problems thus
far. I don't like the default setup ... I had to hunt all over just to
find help in fact.
It is tabbed. If you love Opera, why are you not using it? It is now
free. I have had no significant trouble with Firefox on any page except
MicroSoft's page. I however don't do Korean. Are you sure you gave
Firefox 1.5 a fair spin?

The Naver.com, a big korean portal site start to support web site
compatiblity in Firefox. It holds the Naver Bug Day with Mozilla Korean
Community during February 2006...
You WILL lose IE6. I know some have had difficulty rolling back to it
after installing IE7. There are some hacks available.
I don't really know about your bookmark issues, but you can make folders
any way you like in Firefox. I have not set one in IE7 yet (and that is
another machine so I cannot try just now). There are some great
programs that manage bookmarks in tree view format. You might try one
of those out.
Note that in the 87 bookmark extensions to choose from you have
extensions to allow you to make Firefox behave exactly like Opera:
I happen to love Firefox (if that was not apparent). There are a couple
of extensions that give you the view of the page in IE, or better yet
use IE's engine within firefox as I understand it. I might get one of
those and any time something display wrong, IE is just one click away!
Also you can of course just use your ie favorites folder right there in
