Internet Explorer 7: The Name Game


What's the name of Microsoft's next browser? That's not as easy a question to answer as it might seem. Internet Explorer 7 is not one browser, it's two the Windows XP one that's supposed to show up later this year, and the one that'll ship as part of Windows Vista, which has a few additional Vista specific features in the areas of security, parental controls, and diagnostics.

Back in May, Microsoft said that the XP version would be known as "Internet Explorer 7," while the Vista edition would be dubbed "Internet Explorer 7+." Now the same Microsoft blog that announced those naming conventions is saying that feedback on them wasn't so hot. PC World PC World's Techlog
