Software giants Microsoft have surprisingly launched a public preview of their upcoming Internet Explorer update. Unlike the previous beta, this is available for anyone who is running the latest and legal version of their operating systems.

It looks like the aim is to please the current users of Internet Explorers who are being lured away by alternative offerings like Mozilla Firefox and Opera Browser. This also brings the first change in this vintage browser version is almost 5 years.

I liked IE7 initially but after sometime realised it freezes a lot and after the Firefox update to 1.5.0.1, I feel Firefox still rocks!

i think the guys at microsoft r workin hard to put up with the stiff comp. they r facing from OPERA and FIREFOX. and it's my opinion that the beta2 is a great improvement towards browsing xp(eriance).
