The REAL Release Day of Internet Explorer 4?

Post by STR-BSOD »

The betawiki said "Internet Explorer 4 is released on 22 September 1997",so did the Wikipedia.
However, based on official Microsoft records and news reports at the time, IE4's release date appears to be 30 September.

https://news.microsoft.com/1997/09/17/t ... -internet/: "Readying for the Sept. 30 launch of Microsoft® Internet Explorer 4.0"
https://news.microsoft.com/1997/10/01/m ... worldwide/
https://www.itprotoday.com/windows-78/m ... ptember-30

I feel a little confused.

You need to know if you're referring to the MSDN channel or some other beta channel for an early release, and of course, September 30 is the exact date.
