Internet Explorer 2.0b3 -- Microsoft released beta 3 of Internet Explorer last week. The release includes support for Netscape plug-ins, Internet Config, and GIF animations, as well as an enhanced History feature and support for inline QuickTime movies without a plug-in. If you have a Power Mac and QuickDraw 3D, Internet Explorer also includes preliminary support for VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language); ironically, Internet Explorer now directly supports more Mac-specific technologies than Netscape Navigator. The beta can be downloaded from Microsoft's Web site, and is a little over 1 MB in size. [GD]
