Default Internet Explorer 7.0 Beta 3

Is anyone using IE7 Beta 3 already? My browser is not updated, so the new IE release sounds like a good option. Big download, though, at 12.5 MB. It is said to address security issues in earlier versions. Some of the features that appeal to me are:
  • Phishing filter: Proactively warns and helps protect you against potential or known fraudulent sites and blocks the site if appropriate.
  • Cross-domain barriers: Limits script on webpages from interacting with content from other domains or windows.
  • URL Handling Security: Redesigned URL parsing ensures consistent processing and minimizes possible exploits.
  • Security Status Bar: Enhances awareness of website security and privacy settings by displaying color-coded notifications next to the address bar.

Some good features, but I'm not using it yet. I'm one of those people who is a little uneasy with some beta stuff, so I'm waiting a bit.

IE7 will apparently be distributed in a Windows autoupdate later in the year:

I have the IE 7 beta right now. ITs ok for now. They still need to work out some kinks. Their phishing filter and security status bars run just fine and I actually like the phising filter. But the cross-domain barriers and the URL handling security needs a quite bit more work. More so on the cross domain barriers.

Sometimes I call up a certain domain and another one pops up. It doesnt happen to often but it happens. It comes out more like a pop up situation than anything and not as far as pop ads. Just other domains pop up thats all.
