IE8 in Windows 7 Beta

Paul Cutsinger,Principal Lead Program Manager has posted about IE8 in Windows 7 Beta in the IE Team's blog:
The Windows 7 Beta includes a beta of Internet Explorer 8. I say ďa betaĒ because IE8 in Windows 7 Beta is a pre-release candidate build of IE: itís IE8 Beta 2 plus end user features that are only available on Windows 7 plus many fixes based on feedback weíve gotten from IE8 Beta 2 usage. This post is an overview of what youíll find new in Windows 7ís Internet Explorer, as well as some suggestions about how to get the best experience with this pre-release software.

I am not a fan of this IE release, if I did not have to use it for MS sites I would never touch it. Keeps on stalling. IE is about the only thing i would change on this build so far.

I don't a problem with how IE8 performs, but it crahes alot. But when it works, it works well.

Yeah, that is funny, I use IE and Firefox, I didn't see that in FF because of Adblock Plus.

I love my Chrome Except for the fact that I cannot choose Open File when downloading something, you have to save it.

I hope they still have a lot of work on IE8. In my opinion, it's far from ready.

Microsoft: IE 8 Release Candidate won’t install on Windows 7

Posted by Mary Jo Foley @ 12:18 pm

Windows 7 testers won’t be able to install Microsoft’s near-final Release Candidate (RC) test build of Internet Explorer (IE) 8 — a limitation Microsoft is acknowledging and saying is by design.

The IE 8 RC is expected to be downloadable by the public any day now. Earlier this month, Microsoft made available to the public the (only expected) public beta of Windows 7.

An eagle-eyed blogging chum of mine spotted this tweet (from a freelance writer/editor colleague of mine) over the weekend:


A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that the tweet from writer Robert Vamosi was, indeed, accurate. Her e-mailed statement in response to my query:
“It’s not really a ‘won’t work’ issue as much as a ‘won’t install issue’ since it is a beta and the goal is to get feedback on the Windows 7 beta itself. (Here’s info on the IE build that’s in Win7 beta.)”
The version of IE 8 that is part of the Windows 7 beta is an interim beta release and is not the equivalent of the forthcoming RC.

lol - No, we're not supposed to quote the entire article - that is pretty much accepted as normal everywhere on the net nowadays....

Plus, they have linked to at least one of our tutorials....
