If you are a regular reader of the Internet Explorer team's blog then you should know that IE7 Beta 2 Preview is now available.

I've used it for about 10 minutes now and I'm still having difficulty getting used to the changes in the user interface. They seem like rather gratuitous changes to me, the browser now seems unfamiliar although I assume that I'll eventually get used to the new look and feel.  My main interest was in checking out the RSS support in the browser and so far I've been unsatisfied by the experience. Below is a screenshot of what it looks like when subscribed to a feed. 

The general RSS reading experience is rather unsatisfactory. There are so many features I take for granted from using RSS Bandit that I find the RSS experience in IE 7 to be disappointing. No search folders, no aggregated views of items within a category, no ability to flag items, no options to email an item or post it to my favorite social bookmarking site.  I couldn't even figure out how to mark individual items as read or unread. I found it to be pretty unusable as a replacement for my current RSS reader. 

PS: For some reason since upgrading to IE 7, all the HTML mail in Outlook now hurts my eyes to look at. Does IE 7 flip on ClearType by default or something?
