try loading anything fast in IE7... I understand the limitations of the IE browser-set and how many people are stuck with IE6 even.
There are some solutions (chromeframe etc), but not all admins, or old computers can run it.
Either way, if you use IE7 on a regular basis, you know the performance.
Use more iframes and other techniques described elsewhere.

I hope they "finish" the 4.x before try anything on 5.x.
I don't want to have my Commercial License invalidated (3.x/4.x) with a product unfinished. Sencha promised wonderful things before the 4.x release and now is hard to find someone 100% happy with it.

Ext 5 ??? You still can't save associations in 4.2.

I think you'll find many people with Ext JS licenses are working for, or writing products for corporate customers, who are like oil tankers in their turning speed. 90% of our customers are on IE7/8.
It's not going to get any better soon, since even if they upgrade from XP to Win7, that shipped with IE8 so most are using that.
Yes, Ext JS is amazing that it even supports IE7 and 8, and fairly unique in doing so, I think some of the comments in this thread are a little harsh. There's no argument that it was faster in Ext 2/3 though, and in 4 it requires a lot of work and discipline to get the performance acceptable.
The major saving grace is that people who use IE7 day in, day out are used to it's 'performance', so don't kick up too much of a fuss most of the time.
Saying that though, we have a few customers who have talked their IT overlords into rolling out Chromeframe to a team or two, and that makes them very happy campers indeed...
