Good Start

IE 7.0 beta seems to be up to a good start. Beta 2 will be a good start. With this list of known bugs from previous versions which are now fixed. There are still a number of others and hopefully they won’t be introducing anything new.

5.5 usage is way down, 6.0 isn’t all bad, Firefox is on the rise and 7.0 is promising. I dare hope. Some favorites:

  • Peekaboo bug
  • Duplicate Character bug
  • 3 Pixel Text Jog
  • Quirky Percentages in IE
  • 1 px border style
  • CSS 2.1 Selector support (child, adjacent, attribute, first-child etc.) sweeeeeeet
  • Alpha channel in PNG images
  • Fix :hover on all elements

that’s all sweet. Now we have to see if people will switch to vista.

But Karl, as far as I know, IE7 final should be part of Windows XP SP3.

The current beta is running on XP Service Pack 2.
