The Joys Of Beta Testing

The beta version of Internet Explorer 7, too old? According to GoDaddy…

I might buy the standards compliant argument for Beta 1 (as evidenced by this heated thread at IEBlog), but too old? It’s only available to MSDN subscribers right now.

In regards to the beta, I’m not sure what kind of crack they smoke at The Register, but the Google Toolbar is working just fine (as shown in the picture), and MSN is not the only integrated search engine available(top right in the picture).

Overall it’s a pretty solid feeling browser, even if some of the UI elements can’t be resized yet – which will surely change in later betas. The new feature sure to get attention is the phishing site filter. Full details on that are available at
