Are you guys advising that we download Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2? I only hesitate because it's not included when I check Windows Updates.

Thanks for any replys!

IE7 is in Beta stage, therefore you should not use it on critical systems - such as works computers - because it has the potential to do quite a lot of damage being a beta.

It will not be included on Windows Update for quite a while I reckon.

As a Micro$oft Beta tester, I would follow Mr. Jones' advice and not use Beta software on your primary machine unless you know how to recover from any problems. I have IE 7.0 on my primary machine (do as I say do, not as I do :whistling: ) and love the heck out of it so far. Some little annoyances, but much better than IE 6.0.

Not saying you would have any problems, but wait until it comes out of beta.
