I can safely say that Microsoft have succesfully wasted their time yet again. I am yet to see what they have changed in this new version. They claim it is more secure and bug-free but, come on guys. You could have changed the toolbar layouts a little. Give IE a visual change as well, so to speak lol.


Installation Screen

The same old IE, just a revised version number lol

Well, it turns out the BETA i had was corrupt............ hmm, got it from the M$ site though

never mind, re downloaded it from M$ and reinstalled. Restarted and WOW, another Firefox copycat. The layout reminds me of Firefox 100% lol.

M$ have included new pages for when the website cant be found though. Instead of displaying a whole page of worthless trouble shooting tips, it now displays a nice clean friendly error message as shown below in the screenies.

Hmm, not sure what to think about this one. Will write a full review once I've played with it for a while.
