    IE7 details leak onto web

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/03/16/ie7_leak/

    if the rumours are true, IE 7.0 will have tabbed browsing, a built-in news-aggregator, and could be integrated with Microsoft's currently-in-beta anti-spyware product.
    Microsoft-Watch says that Microsoft plans a range of security improvements beyond the possible spyware integration, including no cross-domain scripting, and/or scripting access; an improved SSL user interface and the browser will now default to reduced privilege mode. The next generation browser will also be able to display overlayed images, will include international domain name (IDN) support, a built-in news aggregator, and will feature simpler printing from inside the browser.

    But as has been pointed out there is absolutely no room for it in a world where Mozilla is available.

    Hmmmmmmmmm,

    I don't think it matters what your opinion of IE is? The fact is that around 80% of the World's PCs run Microsoft operating systems and IE ships with them. That makes it a major potential vector in the spread of malware, so I would have thought that its quality or lack thereof would be of more than passing interest to the IT security community?

    I say this, having considered that most of the people who chose an alternative browser have at least some security awareness and are probably taking other precautions as well.

    Unfortunately, IE is the biggest target, and is used by the most security illiterate sectors of the PC user community.

    just my 0.02
