IE7 now available without WGA

4 October 2007, 9:07 pm ISTFiled under: Software, Microsoft

Microsoft is now allowing users to download IE7 without with Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) check either at the download or at the time of the installations.

This means that even those who have pirated copies of the Windows XP can even download and install IE7.

I wonder why Microsoft is doing this now ? Maybe they want bring all the Windows XP system on par as far as internet security (safe browsing plateform). Or maybe they are just worried about the increasing share of the Mozilla Firefox. Or maybe they are just laying the foundation for there next version of the Internet Explorer. Who knows! Your guess is as good as mine.

Windows XP users will be able to download Internet Explorer 7 through Windows Update or from Microsoft's IE7 home page.
