Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 has arrived

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.
