Microsoft made the beta 2 version of their new IE7 browser available today, for Windows XP Service Pack 2:


People testing the new browser beta should first uninstall previous betas of IE7, including the "IE7 beta 2 preview [msdn.microsoft.com]" -- using the regular Windows uninstall interface.

So it has been over a week, since they launched this new version.

If you downloaded it, how is your experience? Are you still pleased you made the download? Any serious or other problems?

The select element in IE has always been a problem, for some reason it didn't obey z-index rules and would show through any content you tried to put in front of it.

IE7 has made the select element behave properly.

I had hoped for more, but I'll take what I can get.

Hi all,

I have installed IE7 and the thing I like most is that it now uses tabs like mozilla. What I don't like however is that it seems to have a new set of style issues to contend with when designing.

Hopefully when the final release comes out these will all be sorted and it will fulfill all my hopes in a browser ;)
