I’ve switched

No, not that switch yet, although seeing ScottW get a 5.1 on the Vista experience score on his Macbook Pro sure makes it tempting.

I’ve finally given up on IE 7 as a default web browser in Vista. For some reason it crashes constantly on me. At first I thought it was the Web Developer Toolbar. Removing the developer toolbar solved a lot of problems, but then I had no web developer toolbar on my default browser and it was still freezing when I had more than five tabs open.  So it’s a firefox world for me now. Firebug is much better than the IE equivalents anyway.

I heard IE 8 just passed the Acid 2 test… so I’ll give it a shot when it comes out if I’m not a part of the Mac cult by then. 🙂

    Yeah, crashes on me too. Debugger shows half of the crashes are flash. Other half mshtml.

    Bugs filed….maybe IE8….who knows.

    I did the big switch two months ago and haven't missed a beat since! get a MacBook Pro and see your life improve immediately (well after two days once you get used to the keyboard!). I mean it, your life will be better…
