Vista gets its own version of Internet Explorer 7.0
In an effort to differentiate between versions of IE7 for Windows XP and Windows Vista, the latter will be tagged IE7+. Although both versions are both built on the same code base, Microsoft naturally reserves some features for its brand new operating system.

IE7+ will include additional features such as protected mode, parental controls and an improved network diagnostics engine. According to the IEBlog, these features take advantage of native capabilities in the Windows Vista operating system and it wouldn’t have been feasible to port them to older operating systems.

Microsoft recently announced Windows Vista Beta 2 which is currently available to persons with MSDN and TechNet subscriptions. The highly anticipated operating system has been struck by delays and it was recently reported that Vista may suffer yet another delay.
