Yahoo, Microsoft race to release IE update
Microsoft’s new Internet Explorer browser is now available–from Yahoo.
Although Microsoft has yet to release the final version of IE 7, its rival has posted a Yahoo-optimized version of the Web browser. The browser is essentially the IE 7 browser with a number of tweaks, such as Yahoo home pages, Yahoo as the default search engine and a Yahoo toolbar.
