    Disable cleartype!

    Also, what type of monitor are you using? CRT or TFT? What res? oh and any other details would be handy.

    The high memory usage is probably because it's a beta version? :)

    It uses 0MB on my machine and will continue to so unless they redesign it ;)

    Try another 0 on the end of that. Firefox has major memory leak issues.

    I've been using IE7 Beta 2 at work for a short while and I really like it. Especially the little touches like 'shrink to fit' when printing off web pages.

    The tabs work well most of the time and I've not encountered any sites which create problems.

    Cleartype is a bit of a strange one though - you can download it for Windows from the MS site. This plug-in is better than IEs because you can fine tune it.

    It's built into Windows XP, isn't it? Don't think you need to download it. I like Cleartype - I have it enabled in IE7 and in Windows. Think it looks far better.
