Microsoft has officially released Internet Explorer Beta 2 Preview for download to the general public after restricting Beta 1 to developers.
Key new/enhanced features:
* New streamlined interface.
* Tabbed browsing.
* A new search bar.
* Support for RSS feeds.
* Enhanced security.
* Legitimate copy of Windows XP (32-bit) with SP2
* There are known issues with properly loading websites.
* It does crash more than you would like it to.
* You cannot perform a Repair Installation of Windows XP until you uninstall IE7 Beta 2.
* As noted by Microsoft, IE7 Beta 2 ''should not be used on production systems in mission-critical environments.''
IE 7 is coming along, but is still a Beta with several known issues. At this time, only those who know what they are doing should install the upgrade, preferably on a secondary computer. For the rest of those wishing to get a taste of the new features, click here to download Firefox, the free alternative browser that prompted Microsoft to update Internet Explorer in the first place.
Hope this helps,
