Re: IE7 Beta 2 Officially released

What's crazy is they don't seem to mention IDN (i.e. Japanese) domain support, even on Microsoft Japan's site...

Re: IE7 Beta 2 Officially released

I'm tempted to say something like.... "another update to the test version of the patched pre-released beta of the experimental developer-preview browser." Although, this one seems to be significant, as a release for "regular users" (consumers) and not just developers.

Re: IE7 Beta 2 Officially released

Seems they just can't stop making betas.

Quote:
What’s next? Windows Vista Beta 2, and then Beta 3 of IE7, release candidates, and then a final release before end of year.
This way they can draw it out as much as possible never taking the responsibility of having to release the full version. Think the full version is next? Nope, Beta 3.

anyway is this good news? i guess it is just a news not single common user reads.

Re: IE7 Beta 2 Officially released

What's good about it beyond the "news" is that any users visiting the IE page on Microsoft are going to see this. Its very high profile and I bet you are going to see downloads accelerate tremendously. That means more recognition created for IDN and more potential type-ins for IDNs.


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.mspx

Its also on the main windows XP page:

Re: IE7 Beta 2 Officially released

Actually, you are absolutely correct. There is some kind of fudge going on here, as although it is stll marked Beta 2, it is actually more or less being pushed as the Internet Explorer.

Go to the main Window Page

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/default.mspx

Under Technologies You have the Option Internet Explorer (either right or left hand side)

Clicking on this takes you straight to the IE 7.0 Download Page. Only then do you see an Option for IE 6.0, If you click on that the first link you get to is EI 7.0 again!

If from the Windows Page you click the XP Home Page. What do you get? Surprise, Surprise you get IE 7.0.

IE 7.0 is now the De Facto Default Web Browser Option for XP. They really could not be pushing it harder without including it on the Automatic Update Feature.

Re: IE7 Beta 2 Officially released

I would also like to add they are having phone support for consumers with issues. Should give it more appeal to a wider audience.

Quote:
Phone support will start at 5am PST on Tuesday April 25th.
Support number: 1-866-876-4926
Hours of operation:
Monday-Friday 5 am - 9 pm Pacific Standard Time
Saturday-Sunday 6 am - 3 pm Pacific Standard Time
I hope that everyone enjoys the second beta of IE7.

I wonder how many lines they have ready for this. The way it is featured on the site there must be a hell of a lot of downloading going on right now! This is one of the top two events during the release cycle. Forget the Vista launch, the only one that is going to top this is when they add it to the Automatic Updates!

Re: IE7 Beta 2 Officially released

Yup. It's not there yet though. Tested it on another computer and it wasn't offered in optional updates but then again this is new so we'll see. Phone support is for North America, Germany and Japan.
