IE 7 Beta May Be At Hand



Courtesy of TechWeb News

A Windows hobbyist Web site says Internet Explorer 7 may arrive as early as next week. Microsoft is mum.

The beta of Internet Explorer 7 may show up as early as next week, if reports by a Windows enthusiast Web site are on the mark.

According to ActiveWin.com, sources say that the first beta of Longhorn, now dubbed Windows Vista, will release Wednesday, July 27. (Microsoft has only said Beta 1 of Vista will go out by August 3.)

The fact that Longhorn, or Vista, will include its own version of Internet Explorer 7 has fueled talk that the long-awaited beta of IE 7 for Windows XP SP2 -- the only other platform scheduled to receive the security and feature update -- will appear at the same time.

According to the few details that Microsoft has publicly released, IE 7 will feature tabs -- a tool that rival Firefox has had since its inception -- run only on Windows XP SP2 (and not, for instance, on the still-in-use Windows 2000), support RSS, and layer on additional security.

Microsoft has promised IE 7 will ship in final form by the end of 2005.

Well, Microsoft has "unfolded" its "Origami" ultra-mobile PC platform Thursday. It turned out to be a full-featured PC smaller than a tablet but bigger than a PDA. Are you impressed?
Yes! I want one!
Sort of. We'll see.
No! It's too big for a pocket and too small for real computing. What's the point?
