Microsoft Releases Internet Explorer 7... Finally

Posted on October 19, 2006 at 12:36 AM

For those of you who are fans of one of the most unsecured web browsers available, you may be happy to know that Microsoft has finally released Internet Explorer 7.

Trying to be more Google-like, Microsoft has made beta builds of IE 7 available for general public download for almost the past year now. For Microsoft this is a step in the right direction, as giving users the opportunity to beta test your product before you publicly release it is always a good idea. Though I can tell you that this blog can barely count on one hand the number of times I have downloaded, installed and uninstalled the previous beta versions of IE 7 ( kind of gives you a general idea of my impression of IE 7).

I will give it to Microsoft though, IE 7 is a vast improvement over IE 6. I just hope they realize they're already a few years behind Firefox, Opera and Safari.

Instead of trudging the Microsoft line, might I suggest you first try one of the aforementioned web browsers before you download IE 7. Your internets will thank you for it.
