Microsoft has removed the ‘Preview’ label from Internet Explorer (IE) 7 beta 2 and released the first version of its new browser that it will support with frequent security updates. According to Microsoft, its new release is identical to the March 20 version of IE 7 beta 2 Preview but claims it’s much more stable. Debug code however is still present in beta 2. “We’ll continue to do performance tuning and bug fixes, and improve the reliability through the beta process,” stated Gary Schare, director of product management for IE on techtree.com. “IE 7 will go through another beta round and then likely into the typical Microsoft ‘Release Candidate’ trials,” he added. According to Schare, support for IE 7 beta 2 will be localised for Finnish and Arabic users and these language versions will be available from May 3. Users interested in trying the new beta can download it from www.microsoft.com/windows/ie. It runs on Windows XP SP2, Windows XP 64-Bit Edition and Windows Server 2003. Microsoft has also unveiled a new website, called www.ieaddons.com, which holds all IE’s add-on tools and software.
