Yeah, kinda. It'* a beta version, which means that you can try it, but it'* not the finished version and might have some bugs in it. It'll run up until the retail version comes out

I keep hearing good things about this, but am skeptical. I downloaded the first Vista IE browser beta when it came out and it run so quirky and erratic with XP ( It doesnt need any help in that regard I quickly dumped it, With the memory of how bad the IE4 beta screwed my computer up. .... I will wait for the final release. Tired of being a gunea pig and the same for F-disking. Because of all the great comments about Firefox here in the Club, I now use it. It has a couple downfalls but far better than IE 6, hands down.

It'* actually no longer beta, it'* RC1 (release candidate) which means it could be the final released version.

The reason people will say there'* "bugs" in it is because manufacture hardware drivers are not officially released yet. Once the manufacturers finalize and release all their drivers then it'll be rock solid.

As it is, I RARELY have any crashing issues with it, only from Hibernating many times without restarting, but hell that even happens with XP.
