Default IE7 has been released

Yes, folks you can pop over to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.mspx and download the "final" release of Internet Explorer 7 - as long as you use Windows XPSP2, XP Pro 64 or one of the Windows Server 2003 versions. This will be included in Windows updates next month.

If you need/want to keep using IE6 then you are advised to use this regfix.

There is also a patch to enable IE7 to announce itself as IE6 for those IE6 user agent specific sites which have not yet been updated!

Since I use neither, and don't use any hacks, I'm not going to worry about it!

I think I'll wait for the update: v. 7 RC1 is working fine for me, though it's slow on my computer (not on other people's).

There are some bug fixes in the final version, but I don't think any of them are real problems. I do wonder how the updater will get the job done if a beta is installed, as it will be expecting to find IE6....

Probably the same as it did when I updated from the beta 2 to RC 1: tells me to uninstal the RC1 (long wait!), reinstals IE 6 (another wait!), then uninstals IE 6 and instals IE 7 (yet another wait!). The trouble is that my computer is six years old and can't abide several things apparently going on at once, so I can't do much when Microsoft is installing something.

I tried installing the new version over the top of RC1 - no problem, it automatically uninstalled RC1 before installing itself. Took a while to do, with two restarts. The installer also installs and runs the MS Malicious Software Removal tool!

Oh, good!

I've got the Malicious Software tool, but perhaps this is still another improvement of it.

It found shreds of IE6, perhaps? ;-)

I installed IE7 a couple of days ago. Just getting used to its new look. Seems to download pitures quicker than IE6.
