New Interface
Say goodbye to bulky toolbars. Internet Explorer 7 has a new interface that shows more of each webpage you visit. The streamlined toolbar makes it easier to add websites to your Favorites, search the web, clear your history, and access the other tasks and tools you use most.

Optimized Design
The new design, including consolidated menu items, smaller icons, and an overall decrease in toolbar height, optimizes the space on your screen so you see more of the websites you're visiting.

Favorites Center
The new Favorites Center makes it even easier to manage your favorite websites, your browsing history, and your RSS feeds with just a few clicks.

Tabbed Browsing
Whether you're searching the web, comparing prices, or just staying on top of your favorite topic, Internet Explorer 7 lets you view many different websites at one time — all within one organized window.

How to Use Tabbed Browsing
Launch Internet Explorer 7 and your home page opens in the first tab. To view other sites at the same time, just click the new tab button in the toolbar and then type the address of the site you want to visit in the address bar. Your home page stays open in the first tab.

Close Tabs
Closing tabs is as easy as opening them. Just click the close button that appears on the right side of the selected tab.

Quick Tabs
When you have several tabs open, use Quick Tabs to find the site you want to view or to close sites you're no longer interested in viewing.

Search
Internet Explorer 7 brings your favorite web search providers to you. With the built-in search box, you can search the web at any time without having to open a search provider page. You can display search results in a separate tab, and then open the results in other tabs to quickly compare sites and find the information you want. You can even customize your search by setting your favorite search provider as the default.

The Power of Multiple Search Providers
You can choose which search provider you want to use as your default and then compare its results with those of other search providers by choosing another search provider from the list. You can also add search providers by selecting "Get Search Provider" from the dropdown list.

RSS Feeds
Don't waste time checking many different sites and blogs for updates. Just select the sites or topics you care about and Internet Explorer 7 delivers all the new headlines and updates to your Favorites Center.

Security
Internet Explorer 7 helps keep your information safe by alerting you to potential phishing sites — sites that look legitimate but actually are designed to capture your personal information. It's also easier to see which sites provide secure data exchange, so you can shop and bank online with confidence.

Security
At a glance you'll see whether the site you're visiting has a valid secure sockets layer ( SSL) certificate or if there are irregularities in the certificate information. Phishing Filter™ warns you of suspicious sites that might attempt to collect your personal information.

Peace of Mind
And while you browse the web, Internet Explorer 7 automatically monitors your computer to protect you from unwanted and malicious programs that can be installed on your system as a result of surfing the web.

On Thursday Feb 9th at 10:00AM PST there will be a public Expert Zone chat on Internet Explorer. The Expert Zone is a community of Windows enthusiasts and this is the Internet Explorer team’s turn to host a chat session.

Members of the IE team will be available and ready to discuss Internet Explorer and of course the recent preview of beta 2 of IE7 is likely to be a hot topic. There is a limit on the number of people that the chat room can contain so get there early!

Looks like the new IE7 took a lot of ideas from Firefox. I will never use IE again unless it somehow gets better than Firefox.

i have never used IE7 beta 2, but i have used IE7 beta1 and it really sucks, the only difference between it and IE6 is that it is Tabbed browser.

Well gee stop going to those site and then you wont get those. Also now with IE7 Beta 2 no Active X controller can be installed without your permission. But that has been implemented since SP2 anyways.

You gotta remember Opera had tabbed browsing before FF. So FF didnt create it. Neither did Opera for that matter. It was around a long time ago. Opera was the first to bring it main stream then Firefox.

Also if you want security then use Opera not FF. Opera has more security and other feature built in then FF. FF only seems so much better cause of all the extensions.
