IE7 Beta 2 released to the public

Microsoft has just made IE7 Beta 2 available to everyone who wants it. It is available here for download. I am just downloading it now, and will report back with my opinion on it.

If you don't already know, 'Beta 2' means that the program should only be installed by people who are prepared to risk potential computer problems. Before it is released to everyone, it will go through the 'release candidate' stage, and then released for everyone.

Features that IE7 include are:
  • Tabbed browsing
  • Phishing filter (tells you if you visit a fraudulent website)
  • Improved rendering engine
  • Lots of other stuff as well.
The installation has finished so I'm going to restart my computer now.
