On October 18th Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP. The final version can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/ie .
The Group Manager, Dean Hachamovitch says “We listened carefully to feedback from many sources and worked hard to deliver a safer browser that makes everyday tasks easier. When I first posted publicly about IE7, I wrote that we would go further to defend users from phishing and malicious software. The Phishing Filter and the architectural work in IE7 around networking and ActiveX opt-in will help keep users more secure. IE7 also delivers a much easier browsing experience with features like tabbed browsing (especially with QuickTabs), shrink-to-fit printing, an easily customizable search box, and a new design that leaves more screen real estate for the web site you’re viewing. IE7’s CSS improvements are incredibly important for developers as many of you have made quite clear. I also think IE7’s RSS experience and platform are important, powerful, and innovative.”
I am downloading the latest version now. But i really dont think it will be very different from the release candidate :).
