This is it - I am sure FireFox lit a fire under a couple executives here in Redmond (probably in the same building I work). Yes there has been a looong time since the last significant update to IE. But Microsoft is responding, and I like what I see:
- Support for Windows RSS and OPML in the browser
- Tabbed browsing - very nice implementation
- Much improved user interface, for example Page Zoom
- "Dynamic Security Protection" including Phishing filters, Active-X opt-in and more
- Much improved printing - finally!!
