    Default Windows 7 Programs & Applications

    Windows 7 doesn't include as many built-in applications as Windows XP/Vista did. It no longer comes with Windows Mail, Movie Maker, Photo Gallery, or Messenger. To get these applications, you now have to download them from the Windows Live Essentials package, which is available for free and from the Windows 7 Getting Started window. This is a good thing in a way because it cuts down on Windows 7's bloat and allows more user personalization in having only the programs they want.
    Microsoft includes the newest beta version of Internet Explorer (IE) with Windows 7, IE 8.0 beta. The interface is mostly unchanged from IE 7 and still includes tabs and the address bar and search bar in one toolbar. Rendering of Web pages has been improved with IE 8 beta due to improved compatibility with Web standards. There is a new feature in IE 8 called Suggested Sites. While browsing, you can click on a drop down that will search a database and provide you with links to sites that are similar to the site you are currently viewing.

    Yep, Windows 7 cut down its bloat and saved a lot of storage for user. But, I don't know why they are not upgrading Internet Explorer(IE) to a higher level, just like Chrome or Mozilla. IE has more bugs than any other browser and it is very slow. Microsoft is trying develop IE, but they are only trying to give more options and not thinking about more security. I think it's time for Microsoft to stop IE and try a new browser.

    I think we have already discussed about Microsoft IE somewhere else in this forum.

    I believe Microsoft is not interested to work on a browser as they have to face a lot of competition from other strong players like Firefox and Chrome. It is good that they understand their weaknesses and strengths and that is essential for a business to survive. They focus more on developing their OS, laptops and mobile business I think. But the fact remains that there is nobody to beat Windows as a computer OS till now.
