Ok so i clicked and downloaded teh wrong IE when i was updating this ancient laptop(i normally use firefox but it sometimes strops so i like to have IE as back up)What is a beta version? and why do i need this?(i intended to d/l IE7 btw)
Beta is a testing one, so it's still being tested.
Beta version is largely unreleased, sort of for public testingYou don't need it particularly(How is it different?)
well so far the only difference is that when i click on add message it doesn't take me to the box and it will auto suggest websitesit will do for a back up! Its supposed to be faster too and more secure but i don't know how
Doesn't make sense to have beta software 'as a back up', particularly on an old PC. Beta software doesn't work properly, when it does work properly (or before) it will be released.Uninstall it and get IE7.
i clicked by mistake as i was distracted by DCs (and didn't read properly), i didn't know what beta meant in internet explorer terms so carried on with the installation.will d/l 7 i think
