Microsoft has made Beta 2 of Internet Explorer 7 available to the public – just go to the page linked above, and follow the links to download. No hoops, no beta invitations. Even worked just fine in Firefox.
I’ve used Beta 1 pretty extensively, and it’s pretty slick. Tabbed browsing makes it feel closer to the Firefox experience I know and love. Looking forward to seeing what’s new in beta 2.
Dave Winer notes that Microsoft is finally shipping an RSS platform – you can subscribe to feeds in IE7 B2, and it even handles enclosures. Will be interesting to see how well this works.
If you’re interested, go get it, then let the world know what you think!
