    Misleading title, but I shouldn't expect any less from CNet.

    True, however, the CNet article has already been modified since the link was taken down.

    The title hasn't been changed though, that's what I was talking about.

    DL link now included!

    Just to note: This has already crashed my system and i've already found a few bugs. Also the CSS/HTML rendering support seems to be much improved.

    Yeah I got a bluescreen after installing too (on a Dell Optiplex at work).

    They actually didn't do much to improve HTML rendering (or CSS for that matter, but they did a little more to CSS than HTML). I already have one thing I need to fix on one of my sites

    I'm also not a fan of the fact that they REMOVED THE TOP MENU BAR.

    You can add the top menu bar by clicking the tools icon > toolbars > Classic Menu

    ...which sticks it under the address bar. Hooray for UI consistency!

    Lest many people think I only downloaded it to complain: I didn't. I think it's a good thing that they're updating IE. Some of the things they did to it really puzzle me though.

    For ui retardedness, you should have seen MSDN beta. I have not installed this one yet* so I don't know of any new ui retardation they introduced since.

    *no spare machines running XP/2003; if anyone knows how to get it running on 2000 let me know)

    PS: Coolest new feature I have heard of->xmlhttp is now a native object. No mo active x kludges.

    It only runs on XPSP2 and newer, no 2000 support unfortunately.

    In 5 years when IE5/6 maybe finally die, yes. Until then we're still stuck with code forking. I do find it cool that a network admin can disable ActiveX and AJAX apps will still work though

    Well, it bombs the Acid Test 2 pretty hard.

    Also, check out how it renders this site:

    At least it renders png files correctly...

    I downloaded it but I like FireFox better. I'll continue to give this release of IE a chance but I'm still liking FireFox a lot better.

    Regarding my issue if anyone else has it, Go to Internet options than Advanced Tab then under Multimedia turn off Clear Type. Overall its pretty good, is the font on sitepoint's main page on right side smaller for anyone else too? And why is there a bottom scroll bar on site point now?

    I think IE7 enables ClearType for itself by default. I'm not sure how to change it since I use ClearType all over Windows anyway

    I think there are just some things that were technically unfeasible to backport to Windows 2000.

    Wow, this is, well, horrible!!!

    I find it to be completely laggy. Scrolling down a page feels clunky. The tabs look like they were just thrown together, and the entire UI looks messy. I don't undersetand it, they are the biggest software company in the world, yet we still get semi-standard applications out of them. Why?

    I like the option of adding feeds, as well as the drop down for back/forward navigation, but that is about it. Besides that, I can't see myself ever using this. I'll design allowing for whatever bugs are introduced in IE7, but will never use it personally.

    Such a pity that this is the next generation of Internet Explorer.

    Regards,
    Jordan

    OMG, that sure was crap - more bugs that I can count - glad it was easy to uninstall.

    IŽll wait until the final version is released.

    While the CSS rendering is a HUGE improvement, this thing is still full of bugs! Let's hope this not even CLOSE to the final release!

    I wouldn't "fix" anything on your sites viewing it with BETA software. From other people's comments about bugs this thing seems to be pretty far from a final release anyway. Don't fix it yet - wait until a closer beta is released or just wait for the actual thing. You wouldn't want to "fix" it only to end up somehow breaking is even more horribly when the bug that is causing it gets fixed for the final release.

    Absolutely! Don't do a THING to your current sites ..... knowing MS everything could change by the time the final is out.
