Internet Explorer 7 Release Candidate Available

Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Internet, Microsoft, Software

Internet Explorer 7For anyone not currently running a build of Windows Vista, the new Internet Explorer 7 RC1 has been released for your personal enjoyment. This version automatically uninstalls any previous versions of Internet Explorer, so you don’t have to, including older IE7 betas. Even better, it will detect add-ons that might be incompatible or have stability issues, allowing you to get an update if available. With the Release Candidate being made available, we can expect no more major changes to IE7 until after it ships. Vista users can expect an update to Internet Explorer 7+ when the Vista RC drops. Internet Explorer 7 RC1 is compatible with Windows XP SP2, Windows XP x64, and Windows Server 2003 SP1.

I’m really glad to see that Microsoft is making some good progress on this browser upgrade. My primary computer is packed up until I go back to school in about a week, and I was running IE7 beta 2 on it before the summer. I was pretty impressed with it, especially the large amount of screen space available (even more than I get with Firefox). I was happy to see that they released beta 3 over the summer, but I’m even happier to see this. If they addressed all the bugs that beta 2 had, then this should be a very good download. I do, however, hope that they added some more customization options (such as the ability to move around the buttons).
