Microsoft has released the lastest beta for its next-generation Internet Explorer 7 web browser to the public today.
The beta, which is dubbed Internet Explorer Beta 2 Preview
, is available from Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 homepage
requires Windows XP with Service Pack 2. Versions supporting Windows XP Professional x64 and Windows Server 2003 are understood to be coming soon.
According to an article on Arstechnica
, the preview is intended for advanced users and developers. The report suggests that there will be a general-use public beta sometime in the summer.
The browser has several new features including RSS support, an advanced tabbed browsing interface with a funky quick tabs
enhancement that allows you to preview the contents of your tabs, an anti-phishing filter, better printing support and also a favourites centre that should help to improve favourite's management.
