Internet Explorer has been designed to make everyday tasks easier, provide dynamic security protection and improve the development platform and manageability. End user improvements include a streamlined interface, tabbed browsing, printing advances, improved search functionality, instant feeds (RSS), dynamic security protection, and more.

Internet Explorer provides improved navigation through tabbed browsing, web search right from the toolbar, advanced printing, easy discovery, reading and subscription to RSS feeds, and much more. It also provides security through a robust new architecture, security features that help defend against malicious software, and new ways to better protect against the theft of personal data from fraudulent websites. It has improved support for cascading style sheets, a rich RSS feeds platform, and robust tools for deploying and managing Internet Explorer 7 in large enterprise environments.

The Platform Preview is an early look at the Internet Explorer platform so some features are incomplete, some may change, and some may be added.

    and not even a picture. ms just wants it shoved down your throat. f this browser
    websites that explicitly require it can KMA
    I will install it when it's stable but certainly not before. If it ever breaks whocares.
    In other news, this and windows can run on a 1ghz arm chip. Linux anyone?

    IE reminds me of the smart weak kid at school....
    He can do lots of stuff.... but the bad guys beat him up every day and take his lunch money.... he has no idea how to protect himself....

    IE any number will never make. Chrome and Firefox out do IE even on a bad day. If it weren't for IE being bundled with MS OS, there would be no IE at all.

    Slow to load, slow to close and sometimes it stays open in tsk mgr when you think it's closed. Other than that if you use windows it's difficult for the average user to simply remove it and use something else. After 30 yrs of coding I expect a lot more from it. Plus it loves ads, popups, and all the garbage that comes with the internet. Not a secure browser by any means. It just renders well is all I can say about it that's good. Unfortunately, that aint good enough these days. The ms os has this problem wherein if you are not using IE you will not be able to download some of their software. Pathetic really. My next version of the windows OS I use will not have IE at ALL.

    Agreed. XP is currently under extended support phase, so nobody expected IE9 to work on XP.

    Windows 2000 was still heavily favored after XP came out too. Now look at its share. It's just a matter of time and XP will join it.

    Attention! All losers who insist that Microsoft keep supporting XP.

    Grow up, join the current decade, quit crying about your dinosaur of an OS.

    Thank you.
