Is that true?

I've just read that IE7 beta2 is not displaying AdSense ads with the default settings, which of course most Internet users won't change.

Please, if you have it installed, can you verify it? Thank you.

Well, anyway if this goes to the final release, surely Google will solve it for example with a different ad code (not JavaScript?).

Microsoft can not do this.

To look out ads of a main competitor in the internet would shure create a big law suite against Microsoft.

How is that different from looking out pop-ups like GG toolbar or other type of Ads like some anti-virus programs?

I'm not justifying MSFT here, but there are many examples and software out there doing the same thing.

Microsoft is going to boost the FireFox user base and kill their IE business.

All Adsense webmasters will definitely put the Firefox referal buttun on, and promote Firefox for all their web users.

Beta 2 isn't out yet as far as I know. The latest leaked build is an interim build - 2599 - often mislabeled as the actual beta 2.

I'm running 5299, and whilst it's clearly incomplete and buggy (it messes up rendering of a lot of pages), google AdSense ads are displayed in it without any problems.

Thank you, glad to read that. I read the AdSense problem on another forum, where the poster referred to the same IE version (v7.0.5299.0).

Perhaps that poster uses the high security setting (disabling JavaScript and therefore AdSense), but also has said "I haven't messed with settings". Strange...

Anyhow, since another user is seeing the ads, probably there won't be a great problem about AdSense on IE. Sorry for the false alarm.

I discussed some years ago in MSIE6 beta forum.

There are always many trouble makers where the one and only handling is the block list.

In either way, webmasters (definitely, I) will always put the Firefox buttun on my website, doesn't necessarily meaning to make great earnings from the referal, but as a strategic benefit to the internet as a whole.
