Yahoo! on Friday released its own customized version of Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2, which sets Yahoo as the default search provider and makes the browser load up the portal's services upon launch. Yahoo's homepage loads in the first tab with Yahoo! Mail in the second.
"Yahoo! used the beta version of the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) to customize IE7 to meet their needs. The IEAK is available to all developers and partners who want to create their own customized versions of IE7, as well as IT pros who want to use it to ease enterprise deployment," explained IE7 program manager Dean Hachamovitch.
