IE 5.5 Nears Final Public Release

It looks like Microsoft is much closer to releasing the long awaited new version of their Web browser, Internet Explorer. The Internet Explorer 5.5 .dat files, which guide the Active Setup program, have finally been updated. Instead of displaying build 3406 as the RTW (Release to Web) version, the .dat files now point to correct download sites for the final release of IE 5.5. Once Microsoft posts the various language folders, users will be able to download the update. Hitting RTM on June 13th, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 is set for public release within the next 2 weeks. ActiveWin contributed to this report.
