beta 3 loaded cleanly after restoring the old image of the computer, btw. Looking at the M$ usergroups, I see I was not alone in having problems. To be expected that some users will have trouble with beta software - PITA when you are one of them, though.
I tried to install the last update and failed. The install said i still had IE installed, i removed it, which only really removed the links to it and couldnt install the new one.
The same thing is happening with this one, surely MS would know how to make an installer that can update your old installation?
1) Go to Microsoft.com and SAVE the set up for IE 7.0 Beta 3.
2) Go to control panel and uninstall "Internet Explorer"
3) Once its uninstalled, go to your desktop and run the exe file for IE 7 Beta 3.
It should work.
My fav. features if ability to move around tabs, i think its awesome.
However I would have to say the more I use firefox the more I love it and the plugins available...especially the Alarm Clock option in the foxytunes extension.
I think MS needs to review firefox further.
That's cool - couple of the css problems I was having for a new site are fixed. Yay, less work for me!
Just fall off the truck Jimmy? ;-D
The fact that a beta of IE7 doesn't show a given css problem is currently of no importance whatsoever if IE6 does show it. We're months if not years from being able to ignore IE6 and its legion of problems, whatever the final version of IE7 looks like...
Erm, this is probably a stupid question but when I try and delete IE7 Beta 2 it says that the wizard found programmes that were installed after IE7 (mainly loads of updates, security fixes etc).
Will it pose any problems continuing at that stage as it does warn the programmes may no longer run?
This is probably somethign MS will use in the future perhaps for IE plugins. So long as the programs it lists do not need IE7 you are fine to remove them.

Thanks. Braved it and everything installed properly.
IE7 B3 seems a fair bit faster than IE7 B2 but that might just be my imagination. It also seems be better handling my RSS subscriptions.
Maybe it was a bum download.
I'll wait for the final - no point testing my code in a beta browser and I'm really not even slightly excited about this release, simply because microsoft are copying what has been around for years - and because it's platform independent.
Having said that, I'm holding thumbs that they don't break anything, or introduce more quirks, even though I know they will.
Microsofts idea of standards and everyone elses are entirely different beasts - the 800lb gorilla v the 2lb weakling.
