As expected, IE7 has been released.
I had to download manually from microsoft.com/ie in order to force my computer to get a copy now. Otherwise I think the idea is that you wait for your copy of Windows to decide to see if it’s up-to-date and then at that point download the update for you.
If you’re ‘working the industry’ then really you can’t afford to wait for your computer to decide to download IE – in which case I would strongly recommend downloading the client now!
Don’t forget Firefox 2.0 is also due out v soon – so keep checking the Firefox site.
