Internet Explorer 7.0 Beta 2 reviewed

The second beta version of Internet Explorer 7.0 was publicly released by Microsoft yesterday and today Paul from SuperSite for Windows has already taken a critical look at this new public preview.
The Internet Explorer (IE) team at Microsoft has been eager to get me to switch back to IE ever since I began writing about my use and advocacy of Mozilla Firefox, a Web browser that is much safer and feature-packed than Microsoft's current offering, IE 6.0. I haven't been particularly keen on doing so. Firefox works so well, and is so safe, that I've seen no good reason to switch. But with the upcoming release of Internet Explorer 7.0, the software giant finally makes a compelling argument..
He concludes IE 7.0 is a great improvement over IE 6.0 and calls it a credible competitor to Mozilla's Firefox browser. But he claims Firefox may still be better for power users, at least for a while, because it includes certain power user features like inline search that aren't available yet in Internet Explorer 7.
