Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
As I mentioned before, I've been using Win7 full time on my laptop. Win7 ships with IE8 beta which has some nice improvements, but overall isn't ready for prime time just yet (such are the perils of beta software.)

My recent experiences with FireFox 3 (prior to installing Win7) have left me somewhat cold, so my browser of choice has been Google Chrome.

Overall, I really like Chrome a lot and there have only been a few instances where it wouldn't work well with something. One of those things is a poorly designed web app that refuses to run in anything but IE, and the other is (sadly) GeeksWithBlogs.net.

Don't misunderstand, viewing blogs is not a problem and the main page looks great, but when I want to write a quickie blog post (like this one) and I'm already in my browser, Chrome falls short because I have to manually write my HTML tags in the post. There's no Rich Text Editor or ability View HTML when writing a post. (This isn't a big deal, just a minor annoyance. Obviously it hasn't stopped me from blogging about it.)

Fortunately, Windows Live Writer works GREAT in Win7 so I do all of my longer posts in that anyway.
