Why IE 7 Won’t Cut It

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 15 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

…at least among the savvy computer users.

Take a look at http://www.ieaddons.com/, Add-Ons for MSIE. To me, it looks likes Microsoft version of Mozilla Firefox’s https://addons.mozilla.org/?application=firefox, Firefox Addons. There are two major differences though. First, look how sparse the IE addons are? Granted, IE7 is still Beta2, but I’d expect tons more addons by now. Second, take a look at what the addons for IE cost. That’s right, you can get IE7 for free, but if you want to extend it’s functionality you’d better be ready to shell out some green.

  1. Firefox in my opinion is a far better browse. I have tried IE 7, was not impressed. But what would one expect from a Mac user? I just went onto the laptop and tested it, and Firefox is the winner. Firefox as you said has far more addons, and I would never be willing to pay for software, let alone addons.
    P.S When you say IE 7 is free, it is only free for genuine XP copies… to my knowledge anyway.
