Wait Before You Upgrade: Bug Reported in IE7

Remember a few weeks back when Apple released iTunes 7 and Windows users had several problems? My advise at the time was to never be the first to download a new product version; wait for others to give it a try first. BTW: Apple has already release iTunes 7.1, but I still have not updated, as there are still some issues for listening to podcasts.

Well, Microsoft just released Internet Explorer 7, and a bug has already been reported. Apparently the problem manifests itself in Outlook Express, but because the two are closely integrated the cause was from IE 7.

Let's review:
  • Never be the first to try a new version of a product (if you really must, test it in a sandbox first)
  • Use Firefox, not Internet Explorer
  • Use Thunderbird, not Outlook Express
Any questions?
