Internet Explorer "We've gotten some questions here today about public reports claiming there's a new vulnerability in Internet Explorer 7. These reports are technically inaccurate: the issue concerned in these reports is not in Internet Explorer 7 (or any other version) at all. Rather, it is in a different Windows component, specifically a component in Outlook Express. While these reports use Internet Explorer as a vector the vulnerability itself is in Outlook Express." Meanwhile, Adam has published an article on IE7 on his blog: "IE7 is a major plus for anyone who understands the internet and networks, and especially for those who do web development. Read on for a lengthy review."

Double standards

The author recommends us all to upgrade to RC1 right now and would urge all his family to install it, yet he writes he will continue to use Firefox and Camino because IE7 is actually not that much of an improvement to make him drop them. So I guess that means they are still better but he wants the rest of us to use an inferior product. Talking about double standards.

"This browser is a step up and a valiant effort from a company whose innovation pipeline has been exhausted for some time."

Shame though that a company with these resources could 've done so much better if they were actually really interested in giving us a good product rather than doing some half assed quickie 'it's good enough' development. Could 've started with the interface.
