Public Beta of New Explorer

IE7

That’s right folks, the public beta of the great white hope is now up on the Microsoft website!

Head on over to get it!

You’ll need Service Pack 2 to make it all work… which unsurprisingly I haven’t had installed on my box at work, so I’ll have to wait till I get home to give it a spin!

Once it’s installed it will rub out IE6 from existence on your system. Yeah I know that’s generally a good thing, but unfortunately you’ll still need to check your sites in it for a good while yet… so head on over to the Standalone Collection to snag a copy that will work without the need to infest your system.

Thanks to Matt for the heads up on this

As I can’t install it in work I haven’t had a chance to see how much has improved… but it can’t be much worse than the first beta I tried out last year!
