Internet Explorer 7 to feature better printing options

Posted on Saturday, Jun 11 2005 @ 01:53 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Developers of Microsoft Internet Explorer said IE7 will make it easier for users to print content from webpages. This is definitely a great improvement because printing websites is a huge pain with IE6 and I'm sure it will save some forests.
As I indicated, printing and the print preview experience are amongst the areas we are improving in IE7. Our goal is to be able to print most web pages without losing any content using the default settings. For pages where this is impractical, we want to provide you with simple controls within print preview so that you can quickly and easily adjust the settings needed to print the way you want. We're still finalizing the details of the new functionality for printing but I will post an update once we get it locked down.
