Internet Explorer 7 Beta – “Podcast Support” – Nope – Not Even Close …

So, I drank the Kool-Aid from PodcastingNews.com and others that claim that the new IE7 beta includes Podcast support. I downloaded it. It’s nice but I think I’ll be staying with Firefox for the time being.

It has some kind of enclosure support (which means direct links to download Podcasts) that is still in beta mode so I won’t pound on it too hard (yet) – but it ain’t got Podcast support.

Podcast support is syncing the files in the background and transferring it to the device of your choice. See, we don’t like being tethered to our computers any more.

Also, to further the mess, they really do a strange job on Feedburner feeds as reported by Josh earlier today.

And one more thing guys – if you’re gonna to tabbed browsing, make an “Open in New Tab” option.
