    Internet Explorer 7.0 to Include Tabbed Browsing

    by Scott Bekker

    May 17, 2005

    Internet Explorer 7.0 will include the tabbed browsing feature already present in several rival browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Netscape, Microsoft developers confirmed this week. "Yes, IE7 has tabs," said Internet Explorer product unit manager Dean Hachamovitch, who then cautioned customers not to expect much in the technical beta of IE 7.0 scheduled for mid-summer. "The tabbed browsing experience in the upcoming IE7 beta is pretty basic. Expect additional end-user functionality to come in after the beta."

    IE 7.0 is a new version of the world's most-used browser that will work on computers running Windows XP Service Pack 2. Until recently, Microsoft had not planned to release a new version of Internet Explorer until the next version of Windows, code-named "Longhorn." In February, however, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates unveiled plans for the new version of IE.
    who expect a war? I EXPECT A WAR!

    A war between...? Firefox and IE? Mozille and Microsoft? Tabbed-browsing and non-tabbed-browsing? All of those already have a war or have had wars... I think this is simply Microsoft being scared of Firefox so they're releasing IE7 ahead of time (rather than being packaged with Longhorn)

        I say 2007 at the latest... but isn't the "official" release supposed to be 2006?

            Wouldn't it be great if Mozilla wasn't compatible with Longhorn. Then nobody would use it

                    Why would forcing everyone who prefers another browser to use one they dislike be great? It's certainly not a benefit to anyone, least of which MSFT's bottom line.

                        png transparency will be supported in IE7

                        http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/ (do a search on this page for png)


                        IMO MS aren't likely to start complying with web standards. Instead they'll do what they always do - make their own standards and then ignore everyone else.

                          It was in reponse to Loco.

                          RedHat is not longer a free solution, at least not the product named redhat, however, Fedora is free.

                            Exactly. Who gives a damn about tabs when the content within them is still rendered by 5-year-old half-standards?

                              Amen to that

                              Talking about standards: Will Microsoft do as they did in the past (define new standards and don't care about others)?
                              That's the end of that!
