Internet Explorer 7.0 - disappointing so far…

I just downloaded and installed “Internet Explorer 7.0 for Windows XP SP2 Beta 2 Preview” - and I have to say I’m more than a little disappointed. PC magazine agrees with me, you can read their full review here. While offering some long overdue improvements over IE6, most notably the smaller footprint, the newest version of Microsoft’s browser is hardly innovative, me-too features like tabbed browsing and live bookmarks abound. Maybe once Vista is (finally) released, it will get better - but I’d definitely steer clear of this beta and stick with Firefox for now. But, if you really want to try it, you can download it here.
