IE7 has been released, finally!

Posted by Dave Wickham

Well, today it was announced that IE7 has been released. Hooray! You may perhaps have noticed that here at AAG, we’re not what you might call the world’s greatest fans of IE6. Which is a bit of an understatement. However, IE7 is quite a major improvement over IE6 (as I noted back in June), even if it’s not as good as things like KHTML, Opera, and Gecko (the engine behind Firefox). Saying that, though, I’ve not yet been able to install the release version of IE7 on my (legit) copy of XP in VMware, so I don’t know how improved the release is over the release candidate that I tried.

Now I can’t wait for legit XP users to semi-automatically upgrade to IE7, slowly eroding the huge mass of IE6 users out there, who are browsing the Web with their outdated 5 year old HTML rendering engine, causing massive frustration to web developers everywhere.
