Re: Microsoft responds!

I call upon Microsoft to release an update to the existing IE to support IDNs, now.
-> Quite unlikely. Btw, i use Win2k, so IE7 is out.

But again, i rather them fix existing bugs first before releasing - if they can't even fix bugs they know themselves, they would be overwhelmed once hackers start getting into security loopholes they can find after public release. IE is used in a lot of banking and corporate intranets, if bad news start to hit IE7 after it's launch, companies are going to hold back as what Edwin has said, and we end up with the XP situation - with many Win2ks still in use after so many years.
