Yep, however some corporations are already clamoring (Don't ask me why) about this, so there is a blocker toolkit to download now.

IE7 is great; I hope this goes smoothly so people can experience it and give it a chance.

That's what I think so too.
Try to run XAML through IE6. Good, it works. Now try to run it through IE7. You get 127 verclsid.exe processes... <_<

I am not a fan of IE7. I don't like the way the tabs work. Ill just stick with Firefox -_-

All of the IE7 betas and RCs I've used have been faster than Firefox, on my PC. Weird.
