Windows 7: Windows 7 testers should upgrade their IE8

Windows 7 testers should upgrade their IE8

Quote:
The first release candidate for Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, released last month, addressed a number of technical behavioral issues that, according to IE8 Program Manager Herman Ng yesterday, included some serious crashes and system hangs. That's normal for even a public beta like IE8 Beta 2, and the new Crash Recovery feature in RC1 addresses 94% of these "reliability problems," Ng said, albeit with what could be for many testers a very well-used safety net.


But what about Windows 7 beta testers? The IE8 release candidates currently available are for Windows Vista and Windows XP, separately. Microsoft decided it would be a good idea to address their concerns as well, so yesterday, it begain issuing a "reliability update" for its version of IE8. This doesn't make its IE8 a "release candidate for Windows 7," though it does roll up the various fixes implemented in the Vista and XP RC versions.

Good thing because it was ridiculous for them to keep their beta testers on a less reliable version till April. It would just reinforce people to not use IE which is exactly what happened with me.

I would imagine that means it's available via Windows Update.
