    Internet Explorer 7: Beta 2 Preview - Problems and Solutions with MiceChat

    Microsoft has released a pre Beta 2 version of IE7, and there are a few issues with MiceChat:

    Problem: WYSIWYG Editor Doesn't Show Correct Text
    Analysis: IE7 doesn't update the editor as often as earlier browsers.
    Solution: Use the Standard Editor (Preference can be changed in User CP)

    Problem: Some MiceGames Arcade Games do not work
    Analysis: Some users have not upgraded to Flash 8
    Solution: Update to Flash 8

    Problem: Occasionaly when browsing, I get a "Suspisious Website" box in the Phishing Filter
    Analysis: This is due to the fact that MiceChat may collect your Date of Birth on some pages. Note that we do not use this information for more than age-checking purposes. We have allready contacted Microsoft to fix the problem.
    Solution: None at this time.

    Problem: Some RSS Feeds do not properly show in IE7
    Analysis: IE7 only works with RSS2 and ATOM based feeds.
    Solution: Make sure you are using http://www.micechat.com/forums/external.php?type=rss2

    These are the only known IE7 problems at this time.

    I'm using IE7 and the superior experience in other areas is worth putting up with the little things. I like the interface and tabbing support MUCH better than FF's inplementations.

    I have been BETA testing IE7 for a few months now and I am very impressed with it, thanks for letting us know about how to overcome some of these problems that may occur.

    A major problem I found is the fact that IE7 renders CSS properly - so when you view your pages in IE6 or Mozilla they are all broken because they both dont render the pages correctly.

    Ok, I'm not a technical person but I think I'll download this new IE for the tabbing alone. The site says it was released yesterday, the 20th. How is it going so far with you guys who have had it for a while?
