Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 is released!!

June 29th, 2006 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

Microsoft just released IE7 Beta 3 for Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP x64 and Windows Server 2003 Itanium today silently.

Please see IE’s homepage at:

Download links:
Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)

Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition

Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 for Windows Server 2003 ia64 Edition (Windows Server 2003 for Itanium-based systems)

I do not expect much changes between Beta 2 and Beta 3, but I’m sure the well known bugs will be resolved in this Beta 3.

In the meantime, do keep checking out the release notes at (haven’t updated to Beta 2 at news writing time).

    I’ve installed IE7b3 on another computer, and it’s a lot smoother-running than the previous beta; I also like the improvements made. As long as Firefox has the extensibility factor in its favor, I won’t even think about switching to other browsers. I like all the extensions available that add functionality no other browser can offer.

    Until Microsoft can figure out all the major bugs in IE7 (which might not be until its final release), I never recommend installing it as a main browser. I’ve had a lot of people complain to me how it destroyed the computer’s dll library during uninstallation.

    Does anyone find that in power user mode that the run once screen does not display or its very slow to syndicate RSS feeds?
