If it has been released, it's well hidden. I can't download it.

That's just the first run page for IE 5... for all we know it could have been created months ago.

interesting news items on that page tho... "IE 5 for mac released, millions break web site". Um, ok? The link for that news item doesnt work, but its kinda funny to see they've already created that topic. In other words, even if 2 people download the damn thing (i would be one of them ) that story would still appear, and the web site wouldn't be broken. Whatever... i guess its microsoft
everything you know is wrong (and stupid)

IE5 will be released "mid-March" which could mean anytime between tomorrow and April 1st. Just have some patience... all the posts from te MSIE team in the support newsgroups say they are on track for mid-march.

Basically, no, it's not out. Some beta versions have been leaked, but i'm not about to be posting how to get them here.

All I can think of is that the first run page is for the betas.

It is. When you first install the beta and open IE5, it goes to the "propaganda" page. It's funny how they just make up news.

it is just really not kosher to be using the MacNN forums as a base for swapping private betas of any kind whatsoever.

please be more discrete. if you must engage in these activities, please do so outside of the forums. thanks.

Seeing how MacNN 3/26/2000 has posted url for the real thing, this beta stuff, no messages in 12 days, is mute.
