PNG transparency in Internet Explorer

PNG is the format of the icons we use in one of our applications.
I develop the application using Firefox, since it has a powerful plugin: the web developer.
However, the application will almost certainly be displayed in Internet Explorer, which is unable to display correctly PNG icons, in particular cannot render correctly the PNG transparency.

While surfing the internet in search of a solution, I found this site: IE7.
Quite impressive the number of features it fixes on Internet Explorer, and I'd like to know if someone has used it and what impressions has got of IE7.

We fixed the PNG transparency problem in another way, using a script present at this URL.
