IE 7 Beta 2

May 31, 2006   

Netscape, then IE, then a brief flirtation with Opera, then Firefox, and possibly back to IE? Could it be? I don’t know.

I got sick of the Firefox memory leak problems and am trying IE out of desperation. It’s hard enough to run msdev; compiling and debugging is a nightmare when Firefox is sitting on near 200MB of memory. Do you guys see this? What do you do? I often have to use my task manager to kill the process and open it up again, which just effectively resets the bomb timer, but I couldn’t figure out what else to do. I tried killing all my plugins and extension to no avail.

So far, IE 7 beta 2 seems to load pages in a snappy manner, have better tabbing, and I don’t know what else. There is a buttload of new features though. All I want is for the memory footprint to stay relatively static. I’ve got my fingers crossed.
