Move Over IE 5.5, Here Comes IE 6

Just days after Microsoft released Service Pack 1 for Internet Explorer 5.5, Mary Jo Foley over at ZDNet reports that the Redmond giant is looking for testers for the next version of the popular Internet browsing software. Late last week Microsoft put out the word that it was beginning the search for qualified testers.

ActiveWin and Paul Thurrotts WinInformant told Mary Jo that the new version will incorporate an easy access toolbar for multimedia functions and possible anti-virus solutions added to IE's e-mail counterpart, MS Outlook. In addition to these new features Microsoft is expected to update the browser to support the latest DHTML and CSS specifications.
