http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,1840714,00.asp?kc=PCYH103129TX1BTT00586 there is a new version of IE going around, the beta of IE7. it's buggy, crashes occassionally and does wierd things only it#s beta testers are prepared for. the interface and controls are changing a bit, taking on some of Firfox and Operas features, so as to maybe prevent people from going to other browsers and staying away from IE itself, although i don't see that as a major issue unless M$ are planning to gain revenue by selling off our personal details/patterns they gather by our using IE. word has always been that IE7 won't be availableuntil Longhorn, oops, sorry that should now be Vista, comes out on the market. with the bugs in IE7 and the projected date of Vista we will just be kept hanging in there with a heavy collection of windows updates after updates in or installation folders.
