Internet Explorer 7 – update

Hmmm. No sooner do I mention the preview of Beta 2 of Internet Explorer 7 than a new preview becomes available. This one fixes my favourite bug, and probably some more besides, so it’s worth updating. And if you haven’t tried it yet, this is as good a time as any.

I had some fun installing it this time. There’s a known problem with permissions on a registry key or two that can prevent the installation from working[1], but I found the answer on the IE7 blog, and it’s now working. I’ll do some tests to see if some other things that broke slightly are happier now.

[1] The error message that pops up gives no clue whatsoever that that’s what’s gone wrong, of course
