The next update to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (version 7) is going to be released in the next couple of weeks. The update will be a critical update to your system and will download automatically. Before installing though you will have to accept the EULA (End User Licsense Agreement).
While we have been using one the IE7 release candidates on our laptop for the last little while with no real problems, we would like to take this opportunity to advise Sysguy Small Business Server Clients to hold off for a while before intalling, especially if you use web based applications. Our suggestion is install the software on one machine and test all web based applications that you use. It will take a little while before all web site owners update their sites to accomodate some of the changes with IE7 (online banking etc).
IE7 does have some very desirable features. It now includes a phishing filter that will detect if the site you re visiting is legitimate, an RSS feed reader so you that you can view blogs like this one without having to visit the page everytime as well as finally adding tabbed browsing, where you can open different web sites up on tabs instead of in individual browser windows and flip back and forth easily with one click.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or difficulties with or in regards to IE7. The latest release candidate is available for download at Microsoft’s site http://www.microsoft.com/ie
