IE7 (beta) has bugs! (what else is new)

February 2nd, 2006

Today I discovered that Internet Explorer 7 has a beta preview out, which is available to the public since two days already. Obviously I couldn’t wait, downloaded it, installed it, and checked a bunch of my sites.

Yup – discovered bugs!

One bug had to do with the method I used to get IE to encompass floats, and although it was easy to mend, I haven’t yet checked all the consequences of the change I made, but I will surely test that further.

There was also a brand new weird bug, to do with CSS rollovers using the a:hover pseudo-class. I’ve explained all about it in my new CSS section on Locus Optimus, it’s called the IE7 CSS rollover bug. Go look! 😉

    I hope you’ve told them about it. 😉

    Sort of – I’ve mentioned it in microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general, which according to IEBlog is the right place to mention new bugs. There’s 2 or 3 more ways to tell them, but I thought the newsgroup was good enough a place for now – maybe I’ll download the special bug report proggie later 🙂
