With Windows 7 is coming the options to remove Internet Explorer. It can be turned on or off like a feature in Windows. So far, the versions of Windows came with Microsoft’s browser installed by default, and wasn’t a removal option.
The information comes from a screen capture made by AeroXperience of beta build 7048 of Windows 7, they commented also that to remove IE8 takes two reboots and a configuration step needs to be completed. However, the system works perfectly after this, which is more than can be said of the earlier versions of Windows to be removed IE.
