Internet Explorer 7

For those of you who don't know, there has been a lot of buss lately about the new version of internet explorer (ie7). Originally Microsoft planned on releasing the new version when Windows Vista, the new version of Windows, comes out some time next year. Now they are saying they are going to have a release of ie7 before then. Microsoft says they are moving the release date due to users wanting it sooner, but I think the real reason is because of Firefox. Microsoft is loosing more and more people to the Firefox web browser and they want to stop migration and try and get people to return. Not only that but they are only releasing it for Windows XP and above. From all the information I've read ie7 will indeed have tabbed browsing and built in rss support. Currently the beta 1 version of ie7 does not support the css standard, but on the msdn blog they comment that it will be all set by the final release. The new version is also suppose to have a lot better security and even anti-phising tools. I have no doubt about the increased security since that seems to be what Microsoft is focusing on recently. Persoanlly, I'm looking forward to the new ie7, I've always been a big ie fan, although I'm currently using firefox. I'll definitely download and install the new ie when it comes out though.

yay. thank you for the post. make dorks like us happy!
