Beta 2 has arrived. I am testing it out on two machines. So far, so good. Although there is a really big bug that I have to report. It has to do with a certain website and drop down boxes.
Some of the features that IE8 brings to the table are:
Accelerators From the Microsoft website, it says: accelerators let you efficiently complete your everyday browsing activities like mapping directions, translating words, emailing your friends, and more in just a few mouse clicks.
Simply put. Amazing. I noticed that you can now type in something into the search bar and upon hovering over the search bar, several options will appear. This is something that I had hoped for but did not even think of. It is a great addition and I can only say great things about IE8 Beta 2 so far.
However, there is a lot of work to do. A LOT. There are still many CSS bugs even though they claim to be standards compliant. I will keep this post updated with any new news that I can find.
