I heard that IE 7 was considered to be more safer than before, but I have not tried it yet.

Yeh, so safe, we can't use it for DS. Time to verify the codes to see if they are according to HTML standards! :p

Perhaps it is not 100%, but it is 100% better than IE 6.

Within a month, IE 7 will be the defacto standard. If your site won't work with it, that will be your problem!

If you site won't work with IE7 the Microsoft boys have a fix for ya!~
You can even report the "offenders" to Microsoft . lol

To enable you to workaround any remaining sites that block access to Internet Explorer 7, we developed the User Agent String Utility. The utility comes in the form of a small executable that opens an IE7 instance that sends the IE6 user agent string. It also provides a mechanism for you to report problem web sites to Microsoft so that we can follow up with the affected site owners.

I missed the point of this when I skimmed on the Blog. Thinking about it now. This is as clear a signal as you are going to get that the IE 7 Rollout is imminent.

Ready or not, here we come!
