IE7 beta 2 released into the wild!

From Sandi Hardmeier's blog:

Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 has now been released for download and evaluation by all Technology Enthusiasts. This is the 'full' Beta 2, not just a download.

For the IE7 Beta 2, Microsoft is providing consumer customers with unlimited phone support at no charge! They are doing this to encourage adoption because we feel that IE7 – even in the beta stage - will help keep customers safer online and provide them with an improved browsing experience.

Also, IE7 Beta 2 is available in English and will now run on Windows XP 64-bit Edition and Windows Server 2003 SP1 in addition to Windows XP SP2.

Installation tips:
Please remember that this is a Beta build, and some stuff may still be broken. There is a risk to downloading and installing beta software. Please do not install it if problems are going to cause a crisis for you.

Note: The activex update commonly known as the 912945 update is an integral part of IE7 Beta 2. Please review this Blog post to familiarise yourself with the changes to activex behaviour:
