    Waiting on Windows 7 release here. Is it worth it to add to XP Pro?

    IMO, if one uses IE as their main browser, then yes, I think a user should heavily consider it. There are several security related improvements. Plus feature-wise, they have added a handful of items that make using IE easier.

    A couple of examples that come to mind are changes to the tabs.

    A very basic but handy change is how tabs coming from other tabs (links clicked on in previously existing tabs) are now color coded to show they have a common origin. Makes tab organization much better.

    Another real nice addition is that Tabs now spawn their own processes. So if one crashes, the others live on.

    So yeah, I would say that if you have no specific reason to not upgrade, you probably should. (One example to not upgrade is logging into some US govt websites. Some of these sites specifically say they don't support IE 8.)
