IE 7 Is Officially Released

Microsoft IE7 has officially been released. If you are currently running a previous release and want to stay with IE, you should consider upgrading. If you decide to install it is going to validate that you are running a legitimate Windows operating system.

I have it installed and it will be a backup browser behind Firefox, Opera, Seamonkey, Netscape, and flock.

  1. It also runs a rather lenghty spyware scan before install too. I have been using it for a week or so now, its ok…Firefox is still BETTER,I run both same as you. The Best Extension Barr None on Firefox is “Adblock”. No annoying ads! Works Great! IE7 can’t compete!

  2. The good: IE 7 includes built-in tabbed browsing; antiphishing technology; an RSS reader; and a redesigned Favorites Center.
    The bad: IE 7 is limited to Windows XP SP2 users only; installation requires reboot; reuses old IE 6 code and doesn’t yet comply with current Web standards; doesn’t match all the features found in Firefox or Opera; carries a Microsoft legacy of not patching its IE flaws quickly enough.
    The bottom line: IE 7 was Microsoft’s one chance to leapfrog ahead of the competition, but the company has only barely caught sight of the current front-runners. For more features and greater security, switch to Mozilla Firefox.

    ZD.net agrees with you !!
