New Version of IE Beta 2 Released

news from Sarah In Tampa, Apr 2006

 

Ie7 Early today, Microsoft posted a new Beta 2 release of Internet Explorer 7, their new standalone browser for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. This is not a preview release, but the real deal...or perhaps I should say...the real "beta." Along with the release comes a new Add-Ons website for the IE 7 browser. From the IE Blog, Dean writes: "This evening we released IE7 Beta 2 at http://www.microsoft.com/ie. This release is not the preview or the update to the preview, but the real Beta 2 of IE7 for Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1, and Windows XP 64-bit Edition. Simply: please try it." Changes to this release include some CSS behaviors, application compatibility feedback, reliability data, and user experience feedback. He jokingly adds, that "yes, we do analyze the information that comes when you click “Send Error Report”..." Good to know! Free phone support is being offered to customers in North America, Germany, and Japan to encourage people to try this beta software without fear of messing up their computer. Michael Arrington of TechCrunch notes of this new release: "The key features are tabbed browsing (including “Quick Tabs”, a way to see multiple web pages on a single tab), a continuation of the minimalist approach on the UI and toolbars, and enhancements to the RSS reader built into the browser." Looks like it's time to try the new IE!
