Coming to a Windows PC near you - IE 7.0

Here's an article going into Microsoft's plan to roll out the new Internet Explorer 7.0 with lower priviledges enabled by default. They hope to help stop browser-based hacking by making these changes. Other changes that should ship with IE 7 are listed, like support for RSS feeds and International Domain Names (IDN).

Why worry - just use Firefox instead!

Guess it just goes to show how pervasive pop culture is in today's society.
