Tomorrow is Patch Tuesday at Microsoft, and the Washington Post's Brian Krebs says it's likely that among the patches we'll see tomorrow will be Internet Explorer 7
. That would mean that everybody who has Windows Update set to automatically install patches will reboot to find a brand new IE on their desktop. Microsoft has declined to comment, but has confirmed that IE7 would be shipping this month. Patch Tuesday seems like the obvious opportunity. Krebs also says that one of IE7's most-touted features, its security "containment wall," won't be present in the Windows XP version of the browser.
