The IE blog says that IE 7 was released this afternoon for you to download.
well, I’m downloading the final version now, so I think it’s done.
Did u notice that IE7 (customized version) was released by Yahoo before MS as indicated by CNET
And already 3% of my visitors are using it. Amazing! I was watching this number growing since a few days now…
We shall now count the days until the first security patch. Any bets?
It’s the last verison of the re-issue Model-T
Nope, not gonna do it. I was lost to Firefox earlier this year. Not going back. Period. End of story.
“We shall now count the days until the first security patch. Any bets?”
I’m guessing the 2nd Tuesday of November.
Not that Firefox never gets security updates, seems that it gets them more and more as time goes by.
I too will not download it just yet. Only because you know in about a months time there will be an update because of some really obvious flaw
On the plus side, do you think a year from now we will see a wider adoption of RSS because of IE 7 being pushed out with windows automatic update?
How long before the first security breach in IE7 surfaces? I say within the first week of release.

Wow, that was totally underwhelming…nice, for say 5 years ago…
Cept for my friends NEWLY BOUGHT Dual-Core, that somehow 2 weeks from Dell, managed to flip up on WGA. Arrgh!
ummm, ya I downloaded and had it completely installed by 4 pm. I like it and it is smooth and fast. Have not found any problems yet and have been using it all day. I like that I can add rss feeds without any additional software or pasting any urls.
It is alot different that IE 6 but I do not think it will take too long to get used to the tabbed browsing.
MS also came out with Windows Media Player 11 Beta 2. It’s a eery copy of iTunes. Check it out.
IE7 released into the wild
Finally, Microsoft has released a new browser. …

I’m concerned about installation security. First of all, the download links redirect outside of microsoft.com — already starting warning bells ringing in my head — the redirections are to switch.adtmt.com (which has already been flagged in my HOSTS file as a site to be blocked; not necessarily a problem but still something to be checked), and the installation program warns me to TURN OFF SPYWARE AND VIRUS SCANNING DURING INSTALLATION!!!
I cannot even find an md5sum for the product to verify if it is a cleverly crafted spyware program or not.
Internet Explorer 7 Vulnerability
IE 7 was released today and within seconds there was a vulnerability released by Secunia. There are two sides to this…
First, heads are going to roll at Microsoft I would have thought because of all of the ‘we waited forever to get all of t…
Re: #3 by Sathya – with all the gloom and doom surrounding Yahoo! these days and things like the co-branded Yahoo!/IE browser and joint messneger projects still coming down the pipeline, am I the only one who thinks that the possibility of a Microsoft-Yahoo! alliance and/or takeover is still being discussed at some level?
A strategic partnership between the two keeps making more and more sense to me, not less.
Pity they didn’t fix the outstanding security flaws. Less than 24 hours? That has to be a record.
I gave it a week before some security flaw was raised and it hasn’t barely been one day. Um-ma!
Internet Explorer is a horrible product. I hate dealing with it. Its fundamentally broken implementation of CSS has caused me endless frustration and anger. And it was born of a mostly successful attempt at the sabotage of the web and interoperability, establishing a software monoculture that’s only now beginning to seriously erode.
It may be meanspirited of me to say so, but I hope someone on the IE team reads this. Too little, too late, guys. You will NEVER get me back.
Thanks Ross, and I am /not/ trolling here, but how is that any different than this one?
Trojan piggybacks on Firefox:
The security issues only become problems because malicious people walk around kicking on doors to see which ones will open up.
Most people don’t have a clue, as is evident by the sudden spike in traffic for utube.com after Google purchased YouTube.com
(see Alexa traffic for utube.com, up 440%: http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details?q=&url=http://www.utube.com ).
On another note, take something like the SPAM problem, which people can actually do something about (like tracking down who’s sending it) and yet the problem still remains.
I was pretty ambivalent about IE7 figuring that they wouldn’t break anything that works now. Then when I worked out how they are parsing RSS feeds (read – badly) and how it broke my XSL based app I got annoyed.
It appears the IE team feel that searching the first 512 bytes for an element that begins with RSS (any case and even with following chars) or FEED (any case) will cause it to show the error page for a bad feed. So ‘RssWomble’ as an element will cause it to show the error page instead of doing the XSL thing. Of the two workarounds (turn off RSS on users’ computers, or put 512bytes of comments at the start of the file) I don’t really like either, so I guess I’ve got *more* work on my hands than I anticipated.
I’ve found that placing this code in my page helps IE7 turn on the RSS discovered icon
Do you have a link to one of your feeds which IE7 has problems with?
okay – I give – couldn’t post the full code here.
