Maybe I missed something but I was not aware that IE was officially released. I had just completed adding Yahoo messenger on my newly reformatted computer then I opened up an IE 6 browser when this message showed up (with the Yahoo Toolbar automatically added from the messenger install) asking me if I wanted to download IE 7 Optimized for Yahoo.
Yahoo! introduces the hot new look for Fall '06. Update your web browser to the new Internet Explorer 7 (BETA) optimized for Yahoo!
You see little Y!'s running around everyone in the example. This is a smart marketing move to get Yahoo ahead of the search game when IE is released.

People should stay away from Yahoo browsers. I don't know what they do with it but there are a lot of browser plug ins that will not work with Yahoo styled browsers. I know because our company has a plug in needed to use our print service and Yahoo's browser is the only one that doesn't work at all with it and we don't know why. So we have to tell out customers to use regular IE or FireFox
