Microsoft will release the final build of IE7 today to customers, with the company expected to push the build by automatic updates on 1st November.

At the moment there is no link on Microsoft.com, but Yahoo has the final build bundled with Yahoo Mail. All you need to do is download the Yahoo edition and use WinRAR to extract the files and run IE7-Setup.exe.

Might still be a beta as it isn't on Microsofts website yet. Build is 7.0.5730.11CO

Interesting... Think I'll check which build is included in Vista/Longhorn Server Build 5744... But wasn't it said that Vista's/Longhorn's IE7 would be more feature-rich than the standalone IE7 for XP/Server 2003?

The one in 5744 is 7.0.5744.16384. So that means that is NOT FINAL... (unless it's different for xp than vista)

IE for XP is certainly different - remember how they keep going on about the (relatively minor) differences and calling the Vista version "7+" to try to persuade us that there's a reason to buy Vista? I'd guess that the build number for XP IE won't correspond to the Vista one because:

>5744 isn't the final Vista build so if they wanted the numbers to be the same they'd have called the final IE build 6000 (presuming that's what the final Vista build will be).

>5744 isn't the latest Vista build - internally they'll be up higher than that now - Vista 5744 is older than this IE build.

Anyway, I'm not going to download this IE7 until it's officially on the Microsoft page, just to make sure.


EDIT: They just updated their page - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/dow ... fault.mspx :D


An interesting point I just found is that you can still run IE6 after you've upgraded to IE7 if you wanted to: just run %windir%\ie7\iexplore.exe and it's there!

My build is that, but without the "CO" bit - what's that about? :?


Also, have any of you tried the "make your own search provider" thing on the page you get when you go to add search engines? When I saw it I thought it was an absolutely brilliant idea as I've quite often wanted to make a search engine thing for Firefox when there hasn't been one available, but whenever I try to make one I just get an error :(


PS. I just had my first crash, half an hour after installing it...I clicked the arrow next to a Favourites folder to see what happened - it opened a whole load of tabs containing all of the favourites in that folder (although it wasn't enough to trigger the "this may take a long time" message) and promptly crashed. After I managed to get rid of it, Windows Explorer decided it would go down as well...not sure if that was related or not (I was emptying the Recycle Bin at the time, and the Recycle Bin can still be remarkably buggy after all these years...).

IE7 XP and IE7 Vista have different build numbers. For instance, IE7 RC1 was build 5700, while Vista RC1 was build 5600.

Doesn't matter what's the build number. If MS calls it the final build, then that's the final build :).

I like IE7, I think they have came a long way with IE but I think Firefox will still beat IE on maby levels.

the versionnumber is a bit strange. I tried the IE7 but I like FF 2.0 a bit more :)
