    This is an attempt to make Microsoft Internet Explorer more compliant when it comes to web standards.

    Web developers are becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of convergence of the major browser vendors. We need a level playing field!

    CSS is a powerful technology. Many of it’s more advanced features go unused by web developers because of Explorer’s poor support of CSS standards.

    IE7 provides support for most of the important CSS enhancements. A full list is available on the compatibility page.

    7 loads and parses all style sheets into a form that Explorer can understand. You can then use most CSS2/CSS3 selectors without having to resort to CSS hacks.

    The lightweight script is a single-line inclusion in your HTML/XML document. No alteration of your original markup is necessary. Neither do you have to alter your CSS.

    Now we just have to wait and see how helpful it really is with CSS as these things have been said before.
    When life gets you down grab some M&M's.

    I've used it for PNG transparency, it basically replaces <img>'s with <div>'s of the same size, with their background set to the PNG's URL. It doesn't cope with you dynamically resizing the PNG (it only changes the height for some reason), and it doesn't cope with you dynamically putting new PNG's into the document.

    Pretty good for static images though, and its only in alpha version.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the actual IE7 came with an "uninstall Mozilla Firefox" option that to be manually unchecked.
