Default IE7 beta 3 released

Microsoft have released a third beta of IE7. They claim that this new version which supersedes the last Beta posted back in April is stable enough for anyone to download and play with. It is available here

This new beta has some cosmetic and function changes. The redering engine has apparently been further updated, and a security issue reported for beta 2 has been fixed. Earlier beta versions of IE should be uninstalled prior to installing the new version. A lot of people (including me) have reported issues with the installation, in that it is very sensitive to background programs running, including MS's own malicious software removal tool!. The answer is to install it in safe mode.

Once installed it seems very good. However, like the earlier betas it does fall over for sites which are hard coded to accept IE5/6 connections only. MS now have a solution! They have a link to a registry patch on fiddlertool.com which forces IE7 to announce that it is IE6 - and another patch is there to convert back to IE7.
