IE7 nukes Google, Yahoo! search? Not!
Give me a break. Its’ beta 1 for goodness sakes. Doesn’t the Register have anything better to report on rather than rumor spreading and mere speculation.
Update: Scoble has a good post with Microsoft's reply. As usual, had Andrew done his footwork on this and actually called the development team, he would have learned otherwise.
It's certainly not speculation or rumour: I know IE7 uses for whom Google and Yahoo have disappeared (as well as one's for whom it doesnt). Andrew made one mistake in the story, on the search engines, and that's now corrected.
We're talking about a beta 1, not a release candidate or even a beta 3.
That's absolutely false. The article contains many many more falsities. Here's a list: http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=93623#93623
And now Andrew is falsifying my email.
Really, though, I'm standing on the sidelines on this - I think that both you and Andrew have made mistakes, and NO ONE is benefitting from this thrash.
