Preview of Internet Explorer 7

In early August, Wei-Ming Lee provided an overview of Beta 1 of Internet Explorer 7. Although more work will be done before it is released, it does provide some new functionality for us to consider:

  • Previous/next and Back/Forward buttons have been combined.
  • Stop/refresh buttons are now one.
  • Tabbed browsing.
  • Automatically discovers RSS feeds on a page; can add them to My Favorites.
  • Can Shrink-to-Fit for printing purposes.
  • Can more easily change page orientation for printing.
  • Can change default search engine.
  • Secure sites have a padlock icon in the address bar.
  • Sites identified as phishing sites will be identified.

Good overview, easy read, lots of screenshots.
