    I use some sort of wan connector to connect to the internet from my network what i experienced is that when after connecting it open local network homepage and it opens it in an interface of IE6 but in the about menu it says IE7

    What is that

    Isn’t it a bit of a shame to make a product so integrated into the OS so you have to use a virtual machine to be able to run several version of it? It is pretty clear that it is possible to do a browser without to do it in this way, so what is really the reason for it. I guess I’ll never get an answerer for this, because if Microsoft make a truthful official statement about this they will most certainly get a antitrust case on their necks 😉

    That is great news. Thank you!

    Pete, will you post a notice here?  I’ve temporarily subscribed to your RSS hoping you’ll post a notice when it’s available.  Is there a more appropriate feed to which I can subscribe?

    At least its doable – if only Microsoft would take the same approach with developing desktop apps. Don’t want to have to subscribe to MSDN to test apps on vista/XP/2003 etc.

    Anyway I look forward to the download.
