Microsoft Drops Name IE 7+

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:36 pm

Microsoft Corp. has dropped the name Internet Explorer 7 , which was to be the name of the Web browser in the upcoming Windows Vista operating system.

After receiving “overwhelming” feedback — much of it negative — from people through its IE blog, Microsoft decided to stick with Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP and Vista, rather than add the “plus” sign for the latter.
