O'Reilly Inside Look: Internet Explorer 7, Beta 2


This IE 7 Beta 2 Preview is the first public beta designed for IT pros and developers, and it especially targets Windows XP SP2 users. IT pros and developers can use this beta preview to test their toolbars and ActiveX controls. But what about end users? In this article, I will update you on the features in IE 7 Beta 2 and what has changed since the last beta preview.

Installation

Before you head out to install IE 7 Beta 2, here is some useful information:

1. When you install IE 7 Beta 2, it will upgrade your current IE 6. Side-by-side running of IE 6 and IE 7 is not supported. Hence you will not be able to run IE 6 after IE 7 is installed.
2. You can uninstall IE 7 if you don't like it. This process will return IE 6 to its original state.
3. If you have IE 7 Beta 1 installed, you need to uninstall it first before you install Beta 2. Check out this page for more information. WindowsDevCenter.com -- Inside Look: Internet Explorer 7, Beta 2
