Internet Explorer "Elements of Microsoft's next-generation Web browsing software have been posted on a Windows-related blog site, including screen shots of what the application may look like and a link to some of its code. While the links to the build code for what appears to be a beta version of Internet Explorer 7 have since been yanked off the Windows forum, the site is still showing off roughly 14 screen shots of the browser. The person who originally posted the links and photos to the site has since removed the ability for users to click through to the code sample, reportedly at Microsoft's request. However, indicated that before removing the code it was downloaded as many as 12000 times."

I wonder why the code was downloaded 12,000 times..... lol

I have a feeling that MS will probably end up trying to rewrite some of that code for fear of "vulnerabilities".

That has always been MS's main reason given for not releasing code.....

Lol typical of MS: Vulns are circulating before the actual product comes out XD

Anyone know what exactly the code was of? Sounds like it may have been of the security areas (bad enough), I doubt it's the code of ALL of IE 7......
