IE 7 Available as Release Candidate

Screenshot of TheGeoffRe(y)port in new IE 7 RC1Months and months ago I posted about the new IE 7 Beta – well it’s now available as a release candidate (meaning it should crash a whole lot less). It looks pretty, has tabs, has a slightly cumbersome UI but I’m willing to get over lots of it. Basically, it’s a good browser without being great. They’ve weeded out lots of the really frustrating rendering things, so that web developers are happier people generally, and they’ve got it coming close to where Firefox is at. Personally, I think that Firefox still kicks its behind, but given that we’ve got a few apps that only work in IE at work – there are worse problems than having to end up using this puppy for them. Naturally, I’d recommend that rather than use this, you click on the “Firefox with Google Toolbar” icon on the lower left hand side. But this is better than using IE 6, so if you’re still using that – get onto IE 7 quick smart!

  1. I don’t get anything for having people click on the “Get Firefox with Google Toolbar” – only if they actually install it. So I’m pretty sure I’m allowed to spruik for the product – they want people to install rather than people just clicking through. I’m just not allowed to suggest that people click on the ads. Which I most certainly am not doing! 😉
