IE 7.0 Beta 1 Out

For those of you interested int rying the new Windows Internet Explorer 7.0 Beta, its already "out there". You can probably find it easily on your favorite torrent search engine, on any p2p network and heck, if you have access to newsgroups, its been posted today on alt.binaries.comp.

Basically, it steals all the nice ideas from Firefox - Popup Blocking (Which IE 6 actually aready got with the last update), tabbed browsing, fast loading, and a phishing filter that will warn you when it comes across bodgy sites asking you for personal info. Theres also a nice little searchbox that allows you to use any search engine of your choice. Guess for the first time in years Google wont be my homepage. Guess it will be Google News isntead!

So far its working smoothly, so those of you with IE6 have a good reason to upgrade even though its a beta.

Here a piccy of it:
