Internet Explorer Microsoft has confirmed that IE7 will be released as an optional download later this month. The long-awaited next version of Microsoft's browser software will be pushed out as an automatic update a "few weeks" later, probably as part of Microsoft's regular Patch Tuesday update cycle in either November or December. Firms not ready to install IE7 will be able to temporarily block the update.

As a web developer, I am very familiar with the damage to productivity that the bugs in the various IEs have caused. Having said that, even though IE 7 doesn't fix everything, and may have introduced some more bugs, it fixes more than it breaks by far, including all of the most infamous bugs out there. And that's a good thing.
