IE7 first impressions...not good

1. I just downloaded ie7 on my work computer. I was having a problem with the way ie6 was displaying some css, so I thought, "If ie7 renders this properly, then I will just tell the client to upgrade." Well, ie7 made the same rendering mistakes. So much for all the hype.

2. I went to download an exe file to install. In ie6 it asked me once if I wanted to run this file. IE7? you guessed it, it asks me twice; I guess that is improved security.

When I told Kevin about this (over IM) all he said: "you expected?" I think that says it all.

My first impressions are that this is a poor product. Thanks Microsoft.

I will continue to post my impressions as they happen.
