IE 7 Beta 2 Preview is out

Please spare me the crap about firefox being better. Yesterday IE was better, today firefox is better.

That's fine but this is a new product. You want to download it and try it with an open mind then come back here and say it's crap that's fine but don't tell me it's crap if you haven't tried it.

Well, I haven't tried it yet and so far, I can honestly say it's crap. Why? Because I can't even install the fucking thing! I have to "validate" my copy of Windows XP. But since it doesn't like Firefox (deja-vu), I have to download a program and validate XP manually. But when I go to do that, I get an error message.

It validated through Netscape 8.1, which just came out and loads faster than IE 7, IMO

Any nice new features on Netscape 8.1? I still use 7.2, like it better than IE and Firefox, which IMO, is worse than IE.

Really the only things I noticed are new skins, a search thing then when you start typing it finds that word anywhere on the page, a built in spyware blocker(it caught a few things while surfing and stopped them from loading), the pop up blocker seems to work better then before and it loads pages faster

You have to validate now to install any windows updates. How are you doing that?

BTW I have Firefox and Opera installed on my computer and I was able to install IE7 without a problem. So I don't think it's related to it not liking firefox.

No you don't. It's a plugin. All you have to do is disable the plugin. I believe there is a thread in this section somewhere that mentions how to do it, or has links to how to do it.
