ie7.jpgAfter being in beta status for quite some time now, Microsoft has now released the full public version that is intended for everyone to use…

Internet Explorer 7 provides improved navigation through tabbed browsing, web search right from the toolbar, advanced printing, easy discovery, reading and subscription to RSS feeds, and much more.

Internet Explorer 7 provides security through a robust new architecture, security features that help defend against malicious software (also known as malware), and new ways to better protect against the theft of personal data from fraudulent websites, a practice known as phishing.

Internet Explorer 7 has improved support for cascading style sheets, a rich RSS feeds platform, and robust tools for deploying and managing Internet Explorer 7 in large enterprise environments.

After using it for a little while, you certainly see a lot of improvements over Internet Explorer 6 with such features as tabbed browsing, better security and RSS additions, but whether I will use it instead of Mozilla Firefox is unlikely at the moment as it still feels quite slow in comparison.

  • Honestly, I will probably stay away from this one as long as I can. Who knows what Microsoft Update will do, and with my luck it will just install it anyways. :P

    But yeah, I tried the Beta’s and RC’s but I didn’t like it at all. It just looks to kiddie to me for some reason and I hate the fact that it’s pretty hard just to customize the toolbars. Everything kept re-ordering itself when I was trying it.

  • Not a fan of IE but best get this just to stay up to date. No idea why anyone would use this when the likes of Firefox and Opera are around though :-?
