    IE7? Wow, only took...what 5 years for an update instead of a cumulative patch?

    I guess they realized that everyone is using FireFox/Mozilla/etc and not having to pay for all the extra security features so they decided to jump on the wagon.

    It'll be interesting to see how long it takes for someone to create a virus to target IE7.
