IE 7 Beta 2 Leaked Online


The next beta release of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7, Beta 2, has been leaked on the net, with code and screenshots showing up on various Web sites late last week. The screenshots show a tabbed browsing interface and thumbnail QuickTabs.

Microsoft has been giving out drabbles of information regarding the new Internet browser – which is being developed for Windows Vista and Windows XP – including that it will be more secure and have some of FireFox’s features.

One forum poster said of the leak: “We believe that with these images breaking out into the wild suggests that we may be in for a treat quite soon.”

  The real question is  
Have they got around to fixing the bloody alpha channel problem with PNG graphics?

  A Treat?  
Unles it can do laundry and cook, it's nothing special. IE is about the only browser to not have tabs (even most IE front-ends use tabs), and if you want security, well...don't use IE...

  Wayy too late on this.  
Stick to Firefox, or any other tabbed browser for better security with the exact same features.

Although for some reason I still have to use IE at work for some company related apps, I was told they use something called I-frames.

  I have the same problem  
The cisco unity server (ip phone system) at work uses IE - it doesnt display at all in firefox.

  Mac+Safari=Complete Browser

...but I can't run any good online games in firefox

I-Frames work 100% in Firefox. I use them all the time for applications I write. They can be quite handy when used right. Talk to your people, they may just not like Firefox (which is fine, people have their own opinions and are entitled to them).

Just because they don't like Firefox? There has to be a more grounded reason for the incompatibility, relating back to the way the code was written. If not iframes, could it be the way it implements javascript? What else is there about IE that would only allow some pages to work with it? I'm not a programmer, but there must be some aspect of the differences in how IE and other browsers such as Firefox interpret html/javascript etc. that account for only IE being able to run certain apps at my work.

The two main differences between IE and standards compatible browsers are ActiveX and DOM, Microsoft, unlike everyone else, implemented a non-standard, pseudo-compatibile document object model in IE, and a lot of compatibility coding has to go into web pages to provide from handling the two different DOM models if you are trying to do somethign fancy.

ActiveX is MS only, should be avoided like the plague.

Hey look here you can get an exclusive 'leaked' version of IE 7. It has even more exciting bugs than the final

any of you tried it?
  by: Emp3r0r     01/24/2006 04:20 PM     
That was my first thought lol. I am so sick, they have been promising us that for years. open in firefox and look at the ad, then in IE and tell me which one you like better.

  From a web designer's POV...  
IE is lame. Firefox is where it's at. I bet that 95% of the users that have switched to Firefox will not switch back to the new IE. 8)

I have ie 7 beta 1 already installed on my computer (but I use firefox mainly).

ie7b1 has tabs - so they are trying to catch up
  by: Syoware   01/25/2006 01:47 PM     
  . . ...  
7 2 has improved the tabs.

  It doesn't matter what MS does anymore  
IE will never dominate again - Firefox (and other mozilla based browsers) are designed from the ground up for extensibility, anything MS can do, they can do, or will be able to do in short time. With greater standards compliance, and no reliance or proprietary technologies, Firefox and family will always be able to compete by turning MS's embrace and extend MO back on them.

  Same old...  
Instead of weighing into this with the usual responses of how overhyped firefox is, i'll post a link instead.

"IE will never dominate again"
Don't they have like 89% of all users?

Why is tabbed browsing seen as the second coming or something? This just in : Windows has tabbed browsing built in to all progs.... some call it the taskbar.

comment submitted in 1 of the 3 open tabs on my Firefox.

Ever notice how often that seems to happen at Microsoft? Every time they want us to beta-test some "new" software for them, they spring a leak...
