Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 7 Beta 3 for Windows XP2

Posted in Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows


Some of us may have assumed that Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 could be the final beta release before the release candidate version is made public, but no. Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 today. Presumably there are some bugs to be fixed in IE 7 before the final version is announced.

This version of Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 will run on Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) systems, but is also available for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, and Windows Server 2003. It will ultimately support Windows Vista at later stage.

    I’ve installed IE7b3 on another computer, and it’s a lot smoother-running than the previous beta; I also like the improvements made. As long as Firefox has the extensibility factor in its favor, I won’t even think about switching to other browsers. I like all the extensions available that add functionality no other browser can offer.

    Until Microsoft can figure out all the major bugs in IE7 (which might not be until its final release), I never recommend installing it as a main browser. I’ve had a lot of people complain to me how it destroyed the computer’s dll library during uninstallation.
