Microsoft has moved a step closer to finishing a new version of its popular Internet Explorer browser.
The software giant has released a revised test version of Internet Explorer 7 (IE 7).
It is offering free telephone support to consumers in the US, Germany and Japan who decide to try it out.
Microsoft is facing growing competition from browsers such as Firefox which already offer advanced functions such as tabbed browsing.
The final version of IE 7 is expected to be released in the second half of this year.
