On April 25, at 12:01 a.m. EST, Microsoft opened the Internet Explorer (IE) 7 Beta 2 floodgates €" and the phone support lines.

Microsoft posted for download from the Microsoft Internet Explorer Web site Beta 2 of IE 7 for Windows XP Service Pack (SP) 2 customers.

It also simultaneously posted new IE 7 Beta 2 builds for Windows XP 64-bit editions and Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1.

Until now, the only standalone test versions of IE 7 that Microsoft had delivered was the XP SP2 version.

IE 7, which Microsoft will release both as a standalone browser and as an integrated component of Windows Vista, includes a number of new features and functionality, including tabbed browsing, advanced printing, integrated RSS feed support, anti-phishing and other security-focused enhancements and more standards-adherent CSS support.

IE 7 Beta 2 follows on the heels of two different browser versions labeled as "IE 7 Beta 2 Preview."

It can be a pain getting FireFox and IE to display CSS perfectly the same... in some ways I prefer IE's box model though.

FireFox is like an anal retentive CSS nazi http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

I am a firefox user though

I like it. I've been running it since it was a closed beta. I like the way they implimented tabbed browsing a bit better than firefoxes way. Not sure about security or anything like that though.

Yea, the tabbed browsing, and the printing has my interest. I'll probably give it a try, but I'll wait till the weekend. I might need extra time http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
