With some help from the IE7 team, I got IE7 installed. Turns out that there is a conflict between Microsoft (IE7 Beta2) and Google (Desktop Version 2). The Web history indexing performed by Google Desktop somehow conflicts with the way that IE7 Beta 2 handles Web history.
Now that it’s installed I want to try it out. But so far, nothing about it rocks my world. I am sure that the IE7 team could give me an amazing tour, but it isn’t a workspace for me. Firefox is more than “just” a browser. I work in Firefox. And IE7 doesn’t feel like a workspace platform.
I will continue to try it out for a couple of weeks. Maybe I will find the killer app for it.
