    Internet Explorer 7 Beta Preview

    Posted on Wednesday 1 February 2006



    Download it here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/IE/ie7/ie7betaredirect.mspx



    To install it alongside your current ie6 :



    Once the IE7 installer file is downloaded, extract the files via WinRAR, or any other archiving software that can extract an exe file.



    1. Open the folder where you extracted the IE7 files, and delete the file SHLWAPI.DLL and the folder Update.

    2. Open a text editor, like Notepad, and save a blank file as ‘IEXPLORE.exe.local’ to the IE7 folder.

    3. Click iexplore.exe from the IE7 folder



    However, it looks like you can’t run the browser as a limited user on a PC, even if its not under a protected folder.

    Well I do, but it's still an improvement for windows users that don't really know about firefox, at least in security.

    Yea its definitly no firefox, but it flows IE6 out of the water. Plus it has support to transparent .pngs and all that new CSS stuff that Ie6 doesnt but firefox has had for a while. Id say its getting close to firefox but not better.
