IE 7 has XMLHttpRequest as native component. NOT ActiveX.

Category: IE

This is good news from IEBlog:

IE 7 implements a native XMLHTTPRequest object for Javascript applications, instead of requiring an ActiveXObject to be created. This also means XMLHTTPRequest will function on machines that have ActiveX disabled. We’ve providing support for International Domain Names we’ve also done some thoughtful work to prevent spoofing of URLs by using similar characters from other languages.

And, now people are already wanting XSLTTransformer and more :)

If you love the Web Developer Toolbar in Firefox, it is coming to IE world too:

Finally, in recognition of the need for great web developer tools, we are just about to beta a Web Developer Toolbar that provides web developers with rich object model and visual tools which will help them design standards-based HTML and CSS web pages. This feature will be delivered as an add-on for IE6+.
