Part 1: Hello feeds


Hi, I’m Jane. Everyone I know spends their free time browsing the internet… whether it’s catching up on the news, reading friends’ blog, or looking for that perfect web deal, book, person. But scanning a site to see what you’ve read versus what’s new can be tiring. And it’s frustrating to find that there’s nothing new to read after all that work. With the IE7 Beta 2 Preview, we added a convenient way interacting with the internet: Subscribing to feeds. Subscribe to Feeds


Feeds are a different format of the website’s content that allows software to determine if there is something new available. It can range from a new article on msnbc.com, a new movie release on Netflix, or a new journal entry on a friend’s blog. With IE7 Beta 2 Preview, you can subscribe to your favorite websites’ feed and read new updates directly in the browser.



1. Feed Discovery Button – The Feed Discovery button tells you if there is a feed detected on the webpage you’re looking at. It lives on the Command Bar and lights up when a feed is found. Clicking on it takes you to the Feed Reading Page.

2. Feed Reading Page – This is the view of the feed for reading. When you subscribe to a feed, you can determine the new content versus the content that you’ve seen before. We also have controls for inline search, sorting, and filtering to quickly get to the content that is interesting to you.

3. Feed list – The list of feeds that are you subscribed sits next to your favorites. A feed is bold if there is new content available for you.

There are 4 parts to the feed reading experience: discovering, subscribing, reading, and managing. If you want to find more, read the next two posts.

    I think using that icon to represent a feed is very dangerous when we are trying to make the icons represent "subscribe":

    Alex, I think "very dangerous" might be overstating the problem just a little…

    You can do a quick uninstall of ie7beta if all the normal methods like ad and remove files by following the steps below

    1. Goto %windir% and delete ie*.log

    2. Go to system32 and delete ie*.exe

    3. Goto system32dllcache and delete ie*.exe

    THIS IS VERY CRUCIAL

    4. Goto programfileinternetexplorer and delete all the files you can delete

    WINDOWS WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO DELTE SOME FILES HERE..dont worry

    5. Go to regsitry using regedit and goto current_usersoftwareMicrosoft……etc Internetexplorer and delete the whole lot

    LASTLY if you want a working edition of internet explorer on your computer you can now reinstall them from any instlalltion files which your computer will allow now

    I feel like a complete blank, but I don’t care. Pfft. I’ve pretty much been doing nothing worth mentioning.
