    Hello,
    Why would you want to use IE7? It's a bad clone of FF 1.5-2.

    By updating IE, WinXP's Explorer core gets updated (improved & secured) too, or not?

    I would think that as long as I am obligated to use IE to keep Winodws updated, it would be better to make sure IE is as updated and secure as it can be, even if I only use it to get the updates (which is what I do). Anyway, it costs nothing to update, why not do it.

    Have a good day,

    It's definatly not a clone of any version of Firefox. I personaly like it better than firefox. But I will stick with opera.

    When I spoke to Microsoft Support earlier this evening (for issues I had) he thought maybe around December.
