Internet Explorer 7 to be more secure and convenient

Posted on Wednesday, June 08 2005 @ 20:57:24 CEST by

Microsoft said Internet Explorer 7 will ship with reduced privilege mode turned on by default to protect users more against hacking attacks. IE7 is claimed to be a lot more resistant against online attacks thanks to lots of new security and privacy enhancements.
"We've re-architected it to defend against exploits," Mangione said, describing IE 7.0 as a "lower rights IE" with base minimal privileges. The new browser will also feature major changes in the way files are executed and new anti-spoofing and anti-phishing technology to let users identify fake scam Web sites.
IE7 will also feature support for IDN (International Domain Names) and will have a built-in RSS news reader. Another more than welcome change is a 'fit-to-page" feature to make the printing of web pages more convenient. More details at eWeek. Microsoft also said its anti-spyware program has already been downloaded more than 17 million times. A paid version for enterprises with admin controls and management capabilities will be released in the near-future.
