Hmm. So, IE7 Beta 2 is out. Some of the guys at work have been having a look. So, it has tabs. It has integrated searching. It has RSS feeds. A native XMLHTTPRequest object. Well, damn, doesn’t that sound another browser? Yup, IE7 – proving Firefox got it right.
So, who will win? Well, Microsoft clearly have an advantage as they’ll be shipping IE7 with their next OS – whenever that is. To be honest, though, the thing that interests me most is if this stimulates better standards across browsers. I just had a fight with aligning an image with a line of text – and I had to hack it to fix it – so here’s to hoping.
Personally, though, I’ll stick with Firefox for now.
