Microsoft have just announced Beta V2 of their IE web browser. Details on their official site.
There is an emphasis on RSS feeds, tabbed browsing, improved print handling, search and of course, security, for end users while web designers and developers should notice improved handling and implementation of web standards.
First impressions just from the screenshots are (and this is purely aesthetic) that the new GUI (Graphical User Interface) is a little busy. But this is only a BETA.
There’s some nice design work going on over on the site too. Microsoft seem to have upped the stakes for their web design department. Nice work.
Great IE 7 blog too. Wonder who does their PR :O)
