Microsoft launches Explorer 7

Microsoft finally presented Expolorer7, yesterday. They've been talking about this for years, now it's finally there and real :) Let's first make something very very clear: the tagline used to be > if you're surfing the web, anyway what-so-ever or whatever purposes you have... don't use Explorer, it's a developers nightmare!! Firefox is the deal, exporer has it's own rules and regulations for all kinds of stuff, and that's really horrible. But anyway I use macintosh so I'm not bothered.

It is the first explorer update since.. years, about time Microsoft accomplished something in this 21st century. It is because of Microsofts lack of innovation and standarisation that browsers such as firefox get foot a ground this internet-landscape. Microsoft lost a lot of credibility due to older Explorer versions, although still most of the world uses Microsofts browser.

Explorer 7 intigrates most functions taht are allready adapted by browsers like Firefox, extra security and the tabbrowsingsystem. Unsecure site will also be indicated with a colorsystem, or something like that.. Explorer 7 also holds RSS integrated feeds en improved build-in search navigators (improved, yeah right)..also printing service from browsers should be up to date according to Microsoft.

If you're interested and surfing a pc you can, download Explorer 7 here.

* ps, I won lastnights pokertournament (buy-in was 3€, 11 players that makes a winner payoff for 20€, 2nd 10€ and 3th 3€) My top hand was a FullHouse of 8s over 5s, but the triple 2s hooked me for the win about the when still 6 players were running up the table, labdance!!
