Does anyone know anything about Internet Explorer 7, like when it will be released? Also, will the beta in August be available to the general public?

from what I heard IE7 should be comming as part of Vista. Even XP64 has IE6.x 64-bit edition and that is the latest os from MS. I am pretty sure you can find some leaked BETA builds online, but i wouldn't try your luck because it can corrupt your whole windows.
I suggest firefox if at all possible. Opera is pretty good to for that stuff, it really is.
