Anyone had any luck getting C:\WINDOWS\ie7\iexplore.exe to work? Supposedly it lets you use the IE7 engine with the IE6 user interface, but here whenever I type in a URL it opens it in a new IE7 window.

I don't have an answer, but I wonder why would you want to do that. I find the IE7 interface a lot better, especially the tabbed browsing.

I don't like the vertical arrangement of the tool/menu/address bars in it, the chrome takes up too much space once you turn the menu and toolbars back on, and the style of the interface just doesn't seem right under XP.

Nitpicky stuff, but I like the IE6 interface.

Not particularly helpful, but...

I know there's a button in IE8 to let you emulate IE7 for compatability. Not very useful to you now, I admit, but a cool little tidbit nonetheless.

How are things anyway? Not had much chance to talk recently, so I thought I'd just drop in a line & see what I get :)

Re: Not particularly helpful, but...

Hah, now if only there was such a button in IE7...

Things are going alright here, though I do miss going to SWARM. I should get round to searching for other gaming clubs nearby, there's two nearby universities so there must be such a thing.

I've finally gotten round to reinstalling MSN, so I'm online on that most evenings if you want to chat about life, the universe and everything.
