Having used the IE 7 Beta for some time now, it is such an improvement from IE 6, and finally a match for Firefox. Some of the new features include:
The tabbed browsing features of Firefox made surfing so much easier. Often I ended up with 10+ IE browser windows open, so the addition to IE 7 allowing the viewing of multiple sites in a single browser window, and the easy switch from one site to another through tabs at the top of the browser frame is a very welcome addition.
The redesigned, clean, streamlined interface removes some of the clutter that started to take up the top of the screen in IE6 etc. The new maximized screen gives focus to the displayed webpages, rather than the IE menu bar.
The page zoom feature (CTRL + / CTRL -) allows users to enlarge individual webpages, including both text and graphics, to either focus on specific content. This make pages and content more user friendly to those with accessibility limitations.
Easy Access To Favourites
The favourites centre takes features found in Safari, allowing for easy access to your favourites, browsing history and RSS feed subscriptions.
The new version of IE 7 is a very welcome upgrade, even though it has taken some time coming. If you haven’t upgraded yet… well nows the time to do it.
