Internet Explorer 7, First Beta

Well, everyone else is talking about it and, me being a webmaster, I really should say something but, I really don’t have much because I’m not a MSDN subscriber so, I can’t get a legal copy. Today, I’ve been reading reviews on sites of designers and developers whom I respect and the consensus is that the first beta of IE7 is disappointing. It’s looking pretty clear that programmers at the Lazy M Ranch have really only been at it since a year ago when they finally got scared of Mozilla.

This leads me to a design decision. When IE7 rolls out for XP and Vista, I’m going to install stylesheet hiding tricks on all the sites I maintain and drop presentational support for all releases of Internet Explorer before version six. This will help me maintain sanity.
