    So, what do you think about the future Internet Explorer? Is Microsoft just popping more hype about it? Will the new Internet Explorer be more secure or even less secure?

    I think Microsoft are finally feeling the heat about Mozilla's Firefox and its about time.

    Im still 50 - 50 about this release, but i have seen screenshots and it doesnt look anything like the IE we know. But It is about time they are making a new release it has been IE 6 since ..... dam ages now. Windows ME, was it?

    I like the hype about new security features, well over due.
    But whether they make a fantastic browser or a heap of ****, they will still rule this market.



    (FIREFOX IS THE BEST lol)

    there has been discussions about Firefox and Mozilla being vulnerable so spyware could infect us but then using the vulnerabilities in IE to infect our machines.

    like spawning the vulnerabilities from ie while using FFX or Moz...

    that doesn't sound too good if this theorie is correct.

    They do not dare to say "Internet Explorer 7.0 will be the most secure that has ever been released by anyone", just "that WE have released". Better than IE 5 or 6? Yes. Better than Firefox, Opera etc? :doubt:

    what else do they need to say about the version7? off course they'll say that, if not that won't be proper marketing :)

    I'm still not keen on a new IE. Last time I downloaded a full copy it was over 25 Mb's. That's a lot of bugs, far more than in the competitors' versions. Even with the trusted computing initiatives and all other secure programming measures in place I don't have the good feeling of trust with IE. No trust, no use.

    Besides, unless they offer a w2k version, it's a very expensive update from my IE 6 on w2k, and it's no incentive at all not to move over to linux.

    IE7 will expose yet unknown exploits only MS knows how to open. All for the good of the Vaterland, of course!!!
