Microsoft IE7 Beta 2 Public Preview

732 6

Microsoft is planning to release, to the public, a preview version of Internet Explorer 7.

Dubbed "Public Preview" the release includes tabbed browsing, page zoom, tab groups, RSS support and improved printing support. The release is expected to be available by this evening (GMT).

Amongst the many new features, tabbed browsing will allow customers to manage multiple web pages within one session of a browser. Firefox, an open source rival, has long intergrated this functionality by default but now Microsoft is catching up this may lure many users back to the Microsoft browser. RSS is a heavy new feature of IE7 allowing users to "syndicate" feeds from various sites.

Microsoft is expected to deliver the final version of Internet Explorer 7 at the end of the year alongside Windows Vista.

Internet Explorer 7 Public Preview will be available shortly to users with Windows XP SP2 and a genuine copy of Windows.

I may give it a try just for the pages that I can never get to load in firefox. It coudn't be any worse than IE 6 could it?

Not bad, gives me an annoying "Connect to the internet" thing once in a while though, but that's the only bug I see so far. Pages are a bit slower than a tweaked firefox, but I suppose it's not fair to compare that
All in all, it's better than IE6.

Edit// LAG LIKE NO OTHER!!!! Didn't get lag before, but once I got to overclock, there's so much lag. Just to make sure it wasn't my internet, I opened up Firefox to overclock and it works just fine.
