For all of those early adopters out there that are still into Microsoft...
Did I clear the room? Well for the two of you that are still left the Beta of Internet Explorer 8... Yes IE8 has arrived on the scene for you to help the big guys in Redmond troubleshoot and debug this first round beta. Unleash the bugs on your machine...
Here is the official IE8 download link and just an FYI I just upgraded my IE to 7 a weeks ago! But this new version looks to be promising! I hear rumors of FireFox-esque plugin's and a sub-sub-sub Rumor that you might be able to use some FireFox/Mozilla Plugins on the dark side! (But don't hold me to it. I will investigate and get back @ you!)
From the Internet Explore 8 Beta Page:
Over the last ten years, the intensity of web usage and people's reliance on the web has increased dramatically. The evolution of the web has introduced a new set of opportunities, immersive experiences, online services, and standards. Daily life without the web is simply hard for many people to imagine.
With this intensity and reliance, web developers and designers face an evolving set of needs including:
- Interoperability and compatibility
- Built-in tools that help both first time and experienced developers and designers get pages built right
- Browser capabilities that enable innovative experiences
Internet Explorer 8 will take the web experience beyond the page and introduce a new way to seamlessly experience the best of the web, whether you are a web developer writing to standards or an end-user discovering a new online service.
