    When IE7 is released in the fourth quarter of this year, it will be labeled as a high priority update in Windows update. Microsoft sees the alarming amount of security flaws in IE6 as justification for this forced upgrade. Although most people think they will have no choice then to update to IE7, Microsoft has decided to release an IE7 auto-install blocker, found here.

    One thing I hate about the IE7 Beta as it stands now (yes I got it and its not bad) is that it doesnt accept cookies or anything, even if you tell it to. This seriously pisses me off. I cant get it to store any kind of information or login stuff. I hope they fix some of this crap. I also cant get it to work with some sites as well. Really annoying!
