IE 7 beta 3 download- an update

Having told everyone that Beta 3 is available for download, I was a little short on details.

The IE team have blogged several things on beta 3 -

1st - It is available in multiple languages and also now for XP and Windows Server - so you could run this on your server - I would not do that just yet on a production machine.  Of course, the thing you notice very quickly on IE7 is when accessing RWW if the certificate is not set up correctly for the machine (most often the interface name) then you get a huge shiny error!

Also, as a direct quote 'I’m looking forward to reading the feedback - positive and negative - as it comes in. I also want to encourage developers, web developers, designers, and IT Pros to use Readiness Toolkit to help you deliver the best possible experience to your sites’ IE7 visitors. '

2nd, the UI has change a little - the details are in the blog, but things to look out for include:

  1. new icons following feedback
  2. You can drag the tabs around to re-order them
  3. others such as ftp and image zoon features

enjoy the product - I am already running it :-)
