Microsoft previews Internet Explorer 5

As expected, Microsoft Corp. said today that the beta version of its Internet Explorer 5.0 browser software is now available.

The beta release is intended to allow information technology managers and PC users to try out the software and give it a technology evaluation, providing feedback to Microsoft, the company said.

The 5.0 release is the first time that Microsoft's IntelliSense technologies package has been incorporated into the browser. According to the company, IntelliSense simplifies Internet browsing tasks, allowing easier use of various search engines. The beta version also automates Internet tasks, eliminating the need for multiple mouse clicking and keystrokes.

The beta version is available for free download at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ or http://www.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/ The Internet Explorer Administration Kit 5 beta is available at http://ieak.microsoft.com/default.asp/

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
