IE 7.0 Details Begin to Leak

Microsoft Watch is reporting some details on what IE 7 features would look like. It has taken a page, err… tab I mean from Firefox and would be tabbed, improved support for CSS 2.0, IDN (international domain names), transparent PNG, etc. There are rumours about a built-in news aggregator. And of course, improved security which will include reduced privilege mode by default, no cross-domain scripting and/or scripting access, improved SSL user interface and possible integration between IE 7.0 and Microsoft’s new anti-spyware service (in beta currently).

It would be interesting to see how this would change the whole ActiveX integration (though I don’t think much can be done there) and also the improvements in the management of all the addins to IE. I like these browser wars, it is good for all us consumers at the end of the day. 🙂

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
