What's New in IE 7.0

Mary Jo Foley reports that details are beginning to leak out about what may be coming in Internet Explorer 7.0. The focus is expected to be on "myriad security enhancements" (no surprise), some of which are enumerated in the article. Among new features, tabbed browsing makes the list (good!) along with the "likely" inclusion of a built-in news aggregator (interesting, but probably not likely to threaten the best of breed third-party tools). Full support for CSS 2 is not expected (why not?). Much of this may be speculation at this point, but with a first beta due out this summer it shouldn't be long before we begin to find out for sure.
