Internet Explorer 7.0 could roll out later today
Microsoft has confirmed that the final version of Internet Explorer 7.0 will be rolled out via Windows Update this month, the Washington Post reports. The company failed to specify a precise release date, but the new browser could very well be introduced later today as part of Microsoft's monthly "patch Tuesday." The so-called patch Tuesday falls on the second Tuesday of each month, and this month Microsoft plans to roll out 11 security updates for Windows, Office, and the .NET Framework. If IE 7.0 doesn't make the cut, the company will likely release the browser later this month outside the normal patch cycle, as it occasionally does for high-priority security updates. In the meantime, the RC1 build of IE 7.0 released in August is still available for download from Microsoft.
