For those of you who have been living in a hole for the past few days, Microsoft has publically released a beta 2 preview of it’s latest version of Internet Explorer. I have yet to download it and try it out, but I definitely will have time this weekend to play with it and give you some feedback on what I think about it.
. . . we want to make sure anyone with a website can look at the changes we’ve made to our layout engine and the stricter user experience around security certificates. Developers should try out their toolbars, ActiveX controls, and applications that host or rely on the IE platform. IT Pros have their own concerns when a new browser is coming, as do domain registrars (especially with the IDN support), network operators, and many, many other groups. . . If we missed items you think we should call out, please let us know. We’re looking forward to feedback that will help us deliver a great, consumer-focused beta.
I am very excited to try it out and experiment with all of IE7’s new features.
