Internet Explorer 7.0 nears completion


— 10:53 AM on August 25, 2006

The first release candidate for the final version of Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7.0 has made it out of Redmond and is now available to download. This RC1 release comes about two month after the Beta 3 version, which itself arrived two months after the initial public Beta 2 release of the browser. IE Group Product Manager Margaret Cobb told Microsoft Watch that the new RC1 version brings "under-the-cover tweaks" in Cascading Style Sheet rendering, performance, and reliability. The IE team also "tightened" site rendering for developers and added French and Spanish language support. If tester feedback is positive, this could be the last public test release before Microsoft rolls out IE7.0 to Windows XP users via Windows Update next quarter.
