Stupid IE 7...how do you refresh

Since reinstalling XP on my laptop, I got stuck with IE7 and I don't see a freaking refresh button. What gives?

Just right click on the screen and choose REFERESH. Atleast that seems to work for me.

Yes, IE7 is horrible. Is it easy to downgrade?

No kidding. More than half the web apps that I run for my business won't work at all on Firefox. Yes, you could blame this on the programmers. But not really since it's the most common browser to build for.

I have started using FF2.0 now for my casual web browsing and it seems to be working better than the previous version. I like to keep familiar with both browsers. But there really isn't a whole lot that firefox does for the average person that IE7 fails at. Most people won't even touch 90% of the features.

The IE7 crashes are getting to me though.

Yeah but you can always install a little extension called IE Tab for FireFox which allows you change a page to be rendered in IE instead of FireFox. Works like a champ. I will never stop recommending FireFox.

IE Tab: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1419/

As far as the memory leaks, I personally haven't had any issues running FireFox.

i switched to maxthon awhile back, and am fine with this
all the compatibility of IE, without the instability issues.. plus the bells and whistles from ff.

they are pretty well documented.. ff is well known to have massive memory leaks

enough so, that there are alot of sites with sections dedicated to steps you can take and changes you can make to try and reduce the memory leaks in ff..
just google "firefox memory leaks"
