8 January 2007 = 100 million IE7 installations

Party!!!  Take that Firefox  Party!!!




IE-Vista is proud to have been providing support to Internet Explorer 7 users since July 2005.  Its owner, Sandi Hardmeier, has been a Microsoft MVP since 1999 specialising in Internet Explorer.

Internet Explorer 7 is a major milestone for Microsoft and includes many changes to the user interface and under the hood. This site is dedicated to helping the user learn about, use and make the most of all the new features and protections that are part of Internet Explorer 7 in Windows XP SP2 and Longhorn. 

Microsoft is providing Internet Explorer 7 consumer customers with unlimited phone support at no charge to users in North America (English speaking) using IE7 in a non domain environment.
