Another Reason to Not Use Internet Explorer

If you have read my photography blog I've recently upgraded my PC to a new Quad core machine with 8Gb RAM running Windows Vista 64. Unfortunately there are still a number of programmes that are not compatible with 64 bit operating systems like Vista. In particular the version of Internet Explorer 7 supplied with Vista is 64 bit which means many plugins such as Adobe Flash will not work with it.

Firefox 3 works perfectly so that is the route I will be taking for my web browser in conjunction with Google Chrome.

Looks like another reason not to use IE7 as more and more people move to 64bit Operating Systems to get the benefits of larger amounts of RAM.
