No New Standalone IE Browsers

There’s been some talk about when Microsoft will release a new update to the Internet Explorer browser, namely a 7.0 version. According to Brian Countryman, Program Manager for Internet Explorer, in this May 7th chat transcript, IE 6.0 SP1 is the last standalone version of the browser that MS will release to the public. He says something about it reaching the “zenith” of browsers and any further innovation will be done at the underlying OS level. I don’t know what to think about this, but my initial reaction upon hearing this news is: “that sucks, glad I’m switched to Firebird”.
