Microsoft releases Internet Explorer 7 refresh
Posted on 5-Oct-2007 05:00. | Tags Filed under: News.



Microsoft Corp is releasing an updated Internet Explorer 7 experience. The company is making available a new Internet Explorer 7 build, the IE7 Installation and Availability update (IAU) for Windows XP Service Pack 2, x64 Server and Windows Server 2003.

With this update, Internet Explorer 7 now installs without WGA validation, offering what the company calls a streamlined First Run Experience and includes some minor enhancements to the browser and tour based on user feedback.

This update is not available for Windows Vista-based PCs.

The updated IE7 will be available on the Windows Download Center (DLC) in eight initial languages. Additional languages will be added as they become available.

Users running systems in English, German, Japanese, French, Spanish, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese will be able to download the new Internet Explorer 7 at the time of this announcement. Versions for Finnish, Arabic, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Russian, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Polish, Turkish, Czech, Hungarian, Greek, Hebrew are planned for late October or early November release.

Security enhancements to Internet Explorer 7 include a built-in Phishing Filter that prevents visits to known phishing Web sites. Additionally, Internet Explorer 7 natively supports Extended Validation SSL Certificates to help prevent online fraud.

The new version brings tabbed browsing for users of the Internet Explorer 6.

For IT Pros, an updated Internet Explorer 7 Administration Kit (IEAK7) includes the ability to create an MSI package for enterprises that simplifies deployment for customers who prefer to distribute via Group Policy or those who are not using a corporate update management solution such as Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 or Software Update Services (SUS). IT Administrators need only define a Group Policy setting to deploy a branded IE7 package to relevant units within their organization.
