I seriously doubt that MSIE7 will truly be worth of a 7.0 version number. I suspect it will probably have partial or buggy support for modern stuff like PNG or CSS2/3 but still render most correct things the wrong way. I, as a webdevver, am always hassling to get a site working in IE while Firefox and Opera display most things as expected. Of course, IE displays most existing websites better, that's because of IE's rediculous market share. Webdevvers have to make everything compatible with at least IE, and that's what increases usage of IE on its turn. It's a circle that can only be broken by some serious competition: Firefox. Unfortunately, Firefox doesn't use the same marketing strategies as Microsoft does, and with Microsoft it's always best to fight fire with fire. IOW, bring down IE with all the force we have. Like, bribe the 4 largest OEMs to include Firefox in their PC's as the primary browser. Example: here ya go: www.randysimons.com It's a Dutch website of which the high-end version renders horribly in IE but renders beautifully in Firefox and Opera. And guess what! it's completely valid XHTML and CSS2. Bottom line: I'll be using Opera (mainly) and Firefox. I *really* don't see what makes IE better (ActiveX anyone? Even MS doesn't like it).
