IE7 Compatability

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
So after trying to move the users here onto firefox instead of ie 5.5/6 and failing because so many of the sites we have to use on a daily basis are incompatible (god knows why) I'm thinking about IE7 as the next step. Does anyone know of any major reasons i shouldnt move just yet?

    This will provide a little info and some links for more. I don't know much about IE 7 (using a mac) but lets just hope it's better than ie 6

    its nice not to have IE on my mac or any other microsoft software, its a beautiful thing (tears falling)

    Try going on an insurance companies IFA portal which is designed for IE6 on PC then. I'm pretty sure a mac wouldnt protect you from that.

    I actually had it running for a month or so and it's quite good, a lot better then IE6 and I didn't run into any problems while using it. Though I didn't use it regularly.

    I get quite a lot of CSS problems in using IE7 (note that it's still a beta release) - which applies to Vanilla too. For some reason, that '1 to 5 of 5' (or whatever) text at the bottom of the Discussions page appears vertically to the right of the list of discussions on my Vanilla site! It got bad enough that I had to install Opera to view some sites.

    I suppose really my question should have been 'IE7 Incompatability'...what i really need to know is if IE7 is just as incompatible as IE6. Cause that'd be ideal :)

    I think there are less problems with standart compliance. The problems come from the css hacks that had been use for IE.
