IE7 Beta 2 Now Available
by M. David Peterson
IEBlog : Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 (and more) Available
This evening we released IE7 Beta 2 at http://www.microsoft.com/ie. This release is not the preview or the update to the preview, but the real Beta 2 of IE7 for Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1, and Windows XP 64-bit Edition. Simply: please try it.
We acted on a lot of the feedback and bug reports from the previous public releases. In particular, I feel good about changes we made based on reports from web developers around some CSS behaviors, application compatibility feedback, reliability data (yes, we do analyze the information that comes when you click "Send Error Report"), and user experience feedback. People on the team will post additional details about changes over the next few days.
Once installed, I will run the Acid2 test and provide screen shots as an update to this post.
Update: In respect to the fact that the IE7&RSS teams at MS are working their tail-ends off trying to keep dozens of groups of folks, all with EXTREMELY diverse desires/needs for the upcoming final release of IE7, satisfied with the result I'm going to break the knee caps of my Acid2 test reports for each new beta and beta-preview release between now and the time the final version ships.
|what is the case to not use firefox in light of this release?|

I'm not sure if there is a case... The point of the post is not to suggest you stop using Fx, or Opera, or etc... and instead simply inform that new beta of IE is available. In and of itself, thats the message.
