Re: IE7 for XP to Arrive as High Priority Automatic Update

That's good news. No more wondering about the automatic updates.

This has me a little concerned though -

Fourth quarter?!

Re: IE7 for XP to Arrive as High Priority Automatic Update

Great, but question, is it necessary to authenticate Genuine Windows license to download the "patch"?

Re: IE7 for XP to Arrive as High Priority Automatic Update

This is good news, indeed. I like when they say "An upgrade to Internet Explorer is ready..." as opposed to "A new Internet Explorer" or something like that. Looks like the majority of the users will install it.

Re: IE7 for XP to Arrive as High Priority Automatic Update

If you want it from the horses mouth then:

http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/07/26/678149.aspx

which incidentally starts:

<< As we get close to the final availability of Internet Explorer 7, I want to provide an update on our distribution plans. To help our customers become more secure and up-to-date, we will distribute IE7 as a high-priority update via Automatic Updates (AU) shortly after the final version is released for Windows XP, planned for the fourth quarter of this year.>>

Re: IE7 for XP to Arrive as High Priority Automatic Update

It would also be interesting to track how many customers install IE7 on the first day if that data are available.

Re: IE7 for XP to Arrive as High Priority Automatic Update

It would be more interesting to know when the first day was!

I don't actually buy this fourth quarter line. Microsoft have consitently released earlier than stated, and this is very detailed for something 2 to 3 months out.

Re: IE7 for XP to Arrive as High Priority Automatic Update

Yes, but we have to remember that it will be a starting point, not a panacea. I think some IDNers have the idea that they will become millionaires the day IE7 comes out.

Not everyone will install it right away. Some will decline the upgrade. IDN support is not mentioned in any of the marketing communications that I have seen, so our sites will (hopefully) be a pleasant surprise. However, the average user may not know for quite a while that he or she can 'type in' domain names.

I am not trying to be a wet blanket, but I just don't want to hear a lot of Microsoft bashing if IE7 has 'issues' and detractors. Too many of us have been calling for IE7. After it shows up, be patient and go with the flow.

It really doesn't matter how few people will upgrade to IE7, the release itself should be a sufficient reason for you to have a safe laugh. 10% of all users upgrade is good enough to change your life forever.

I think you are being far too pessimistic here. When it is released, which I think will be sooner than we are being led to believe at this point up take will be huge. IE 6 has few fans. Enough people will get this on day one for there to be a general awareness. Not many people will choose to be stuck with IE 6.0. OK, there are some issue about whether you have a pucker XP licence, but I don't think that is going to have a serious impact.

Yes, there is an issue about how long it will take the Japanese to get used to direct navigation, which is one of the reasons why trying to get your parking pages indexed. Don't forget this does not require browser support.

Re: IE7 for XP to Arrive as High Priority Automatic Update

- As for all those who are using unlicensed ms products, give them 3-4 days and they will have it "unlocked"
- Giant or anyone who thinks so also, how do you see 10% of users that are moving from ie6 to 7 changing anything drastic?
- As for the fact most dont like ie6,i agree they will give 7 a chance (and imo 7 is not bad at all) but even if they disagree i want to think theyre not going back to 6,just moving to firefox , opera etc...

[/QUOTE]

If 10% of all users upgrade to IE7 can't chage your life, it will certainly change mine.

If I can get 2 - 3 times of my present traffic revenue, I can release myself from other responsibilies and I can start concentrating on something I really want to do. That's a big change of my life.

Don't be mistaken that you need a lot of money to change your life, you just need a little more money to buy yourself some freedom, your life is changed.

I would guess that most people here need a little more than 2 - 3 time their current traffic to leave their day job.

I am already in the process of making that transition. To get the most of my portfolio in the first year or two is going to be fairly time consuming. Why would I want to waste my time doing other people's menial crap?

This is not a school outing. Those that get their portfolios sorted and earning can buy more high quality domains before they get too expensive. This is not some hobby job. For me and probably a couple of dozen other's on here this is the future. The easy bit is over. Much of the hard work is in front of us.

burnsinternet is right, it's always wise not to be over-optimistic. But we must also realize that the release of IE7 is a very big event for all IDNers, depends on the size and quality of your IDN portfolio, it can be the most important event of your life!

The only experience that you will ever have that is going to be similar is if you are brave enough and successful enough to pay for a space shot.

Couldn't agree more. Hopefully Giant leaves some for the rest of us.

That's the big question - what multiples will we see once IE7 is out? I'd expect a step jump followed by months of uptrend in traffic. Hopefully followed by another step jump from the release of Vista. With continuing uptrends from internet growth in non-English speaking countries.
