The Beat Goes On For Internet Explorer: Page 7 of 7

There are other things we'd like to see as well. A better download manager would be nice. IE7 still has the old download progress window with no features to resume broken downloads or get them faster. And guess what? When you have the pop-up blocker turned on, you can't even download mail attachments unless you use the Ctrl key to over-ride it. Nor is there a tab session manager to save and restore your tabs when you close the browser window.

The builds of IE7 are getting slowly closer to a safer browser because of the new security features. But in terms of a new browsing experience, it's still not all there yet.
