Seems I’m not the only one who has abandoned IE7 after initially being a supporter. I switched to Firefox and Google Reader over the summer when my IE7 feeds stopped updating and I couldn’t figure out why. Now that I’ve been using Firefox for several months, I can say I’ve become a total convert. It’s faster, more stable, and easier to use. As for Google Reader, it’s fine but I can think of a lot of ways it could be better. In any case, I think it says a lot that I tried Firefox several times but always stuck with IE until a few months ago. Now that I’ve switched, it will be a long time before I switch back.
