Microsoft took the wraps off Internet Explorer 7 Tuesday, releasing the new "preview" version of its Web browser to the general public for testing.
This should be exciting news for anyone interested in where internet browsing is heading in the future. I know, Internet Explorer gets a bad wrap (and rightly so), and that from all I've heard, IE 7 is still going to be quite flawed, but I think we'll find Microsoft beginning to become more in tune with everything else that is going on in the computer world (for example, Microsoft and Mozilla working together to integrate the RSS feed style that Firfox has into IE). And, although other web browsers are becoming more popular, most people will be sticking with IE for at least the immediate future, so it's good to know what people will be using. I'll probably be downloading the beta soon and toying with it a bit, if I feel like I have any comments worthwhile, I'll post 'em up. Download the IE 7 Beta here.
