Microsoft releases final version of IE 7

After several months of development and beta testing, Microsoft have released the final version of IE 7. This is the first browser update from Microsoft since IE 6 almost 5 years ago, and also since Microsoft announced back in 2003 that they would not be developing any standalone (non Windows integrated) browsers in the future, but chosing to spend their time integrating the browser into the OS instead.

This latest release does not really offer any new features that what have alreadty been available in Firefox. IE7 seems to be more or a ‘catch up’ release to ensure that IE has ‘me too’ features, so that there is not a chance that it will be left behind in the attention that Firefox has been generating in the past couple of years.
