IE7 Beta now publically available


Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Internet Explorer 7Just days after it was leaked, Microsoft have decided to publically realease he Beta 2 version of Internet Explorer. As a relatively recent Firefox convert, this release is designed to target people like me, and get me to switch back to Internet Explorer (as an aside, note that it’s now Windows Internet Explorer rather than Microsoft Internet Explorer). I’m downloading it as I type, and in the coming days I’ll no doubt post some of my thoughts on the latest IE experience. You should feel free to do the same – leave your comments or a link to them here if you want. But don’t feel obliged 😉

I didn’t use it for very long, I have to say. While I like the nifty QuickTabs feature, the software is so buggy as to be unusable. Even considering it’s a Beta, it’s full of ’em.

Certainly for the moment, Firefox wins hands-down.
