Default 2 versions of IE 7

Stupid Microsoft will give Vista its own "special" version of Internet Explorer 7.0. Unbelievable. In an effort to differentiate between versions of IE7 for Windows XP and Windows Vista, the Vista version will be tagged IE7+ even though both versions are built on the same code. Of course, Microsoft want to reserve some features for its brand new operating system.

IE7+ will include additional features such as: protected mode, parental controls and an improved network diagnostics engine. These new features for IE7+ for Vista are suppose to take advantage of native capabilities in the Windows Vista operating system and it wouldn't be effective to use on older operating systems like XP. Lol, Windows XP is going to be so obsolete.

There might not be hardly any difference right now since it's in the Beta stages, but the final version is hinting a change.

Microsoft is doing that to get people to switch over to Windows Vista. Whatever, I'm more interested in Firefox 2.0 instead.

I happen to like Opera, so I dont worry about all that crap. I mean, really, two versions. Obserd. I mean, they have to make EVERYTHING so complicated.
