Preview of Internet Explorer 7
September 7, 2005Posted by on
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.
