Internet Explorer[edit]

"Internet Explorer lacks important features like tabbed browsing, which makes your daily work in Wikimedia Commons a lot easier and has severe bugs like the infamous PNG transparency bug." As of version 7 this is no longer true. –Dilaudid 13:03, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm currently using Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) on my university laptop (I use Firefox on my home desktop PC), so I can see that you're right about tabbed browsing; IE7 definitely has that feature. But have they really fixed the PNG transparency bug (whatever that is) as well? Also, the paragraph in question says that IE has severe bugs (emphasis added); are there really other severe bugs in IE, and if so, which of them have been fixed in IE7? —Neuromath 01:04, 3 January 2007 (UTC)
