Internet Explorer 7 (IE7)

Microsoft has released the Internet Explorer 7 in late October. 
Windows XP SP2 users will be asked to upgrade to Internet Explorer 7 
when they uses the Automatic Update for Windows. For more information 
about IE7, you may refer to the Computer News no. 123 at 
http://www.hku.hk/cc_news/ccnews123/IE7.htm by the HKU Computer 

In some computers installed with IE7, we find a problem when working 
with the Intranet and some other sites. When you close a web page in 
a tab or a pop-up (child) window of a browser window, the session 
information and user information of the web pages of other tabs in 
the same browser window *may* be lost. And you may be asked to login 
again. For example, after you have closed the pop-up message window 
of the discussion forum each time and continue browsing the Intranet, 
you may be asked to type in the username and password again.

We will let you know when IE7 is fixed and is confirmed to be working 
fine with this web site. As at the time of this post, we do not think 
it is a must to upgrade to IE7, although it is listed as a high 
priority update on the Automatic Updates for Windows.

* Note: The tab feature of the latest release of Mozilla Firefox 2 
works fine with the web site.

P.S. If any one who know any other workaround or solution, please 
feel free to let us know.
