Windows 7: Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer

I've been testing Windows 7 beta as a whole and it seems there still needs to be a lot of work to be done on Internet Explorer as the browser doesn't render pages correctly and crashes often. From my experience Internet Explorer 7 is a lot more stable and renders pages better.

Is anyone else having this problem in Windows 7 beta 64-bit? Take a look here:

Remember, W7 is a Beta OS - and IE 8 is still a Beta browser.

Expect some things that need ironing out.

FWIW - the last time I tried IE 8 Beta 1 on Vista - I complained loudly and got rid of it inside of a week....

Are you using IE8 64-bit or 32-bit? I'm using the 32-bit version.

Is anyone else getting frequent crashes or is it just me?

Hello lhinckley,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I'm with Mr. GRiM. I used IE a couple times and now use Firefox.

firefox not an option here

The site above - icastnews.com - sends a 24/7 live stream with live programs or broadcast feeds (same as live - not on-demand) if there is no breaking news - firefox won't play it except using ieTab. The WMP firefox plugin from microsoft doesn't seem to work here. The source of the stream is a dedicated windows media server. btw. On-demand windows media streams are no problem form this site, only the live one. I should note that live streams are rather unusual except for special events. I found the same problem on other live stresm feeds.

This is ie7 64bit. IE7 in XP or Vista works fine on this feed.
