IE 7 Worries October 22, 2006

Posted by WishBoNe in Technology and Gadgets.

There’re some suspicious reporting activities back to Microsoft and I’m not happy about it. I don’t want to be identified unless MS decides to have an open survey for MS users and the rules of it are clearly stated.

The problem is that certain scripts that used to be compatible with IE6 are no longer compatible in IE7. Well, for Excite. anyway. Composing emails used to have a dropdown of the email addresses you wished to send to. IE7 isn’t compatible. Hence, I’m going to stop using my Excite account from 1st Dec 2006, the problems are just not worth my efforts in preserving the account. Besides, Mail2World has unlimited email storage, so I’m migrating there. There’s no need to reload the page to check for emails too, isn’t it wonderful? […]
