IE7 Beta Due Soon; Will Support PNG Transparency
The most recent post the IEBlog has some hints at what to expect in the IE7 Beta, which is due out pretty soon.
Among a few CSS fixes, it was announced that IE7 will support alpha transparency in the PNG format. This is exciting for Web designers who have maybe resisted using this format because of the lack of support it has had in the browser that holds the largest marketshare. I know I have had several occasions where using a PNG with transparency would have made work much easier, but decided not to because of IE’s lack of support.
Good to see them finally catching up with every other browser available.
