Let millions of others beta-test IE 7 for you

Internet Explorer 7.0 will roll out this week. It’s supposed to pop up a screen asking if you want to install it, but to be safe, disable Automatic Updates (Start/Control Panel/Automatic Updates) and wait a few weeks.

That way, tens of millions will do the final beta-testing for you. If/when it looks like there’s no monster bugs lurking, then you can install it – and disable all your IE6 add-ins before doing so (Tools/Manage Add-Ons.)

FireFox is still smarter, more intuitive and more secure. However IE 7 does have nice features.

    However IE 7 does have nice features.

    Which will likely be available in FireFox 2.0 or a revision in less time than what Microsoft took to roll out IE7. Ain’t Open Source grand?

  • Actually, I’m not sure there’s anything in IE7 that isn’t already in Firefox now!

    Just read in PCMag that IBM is now backing open source in a huge way.

    There is nothing that isn’t already in Opera either.
