    I just found out that the Internet Explorer 8 BETA has been released and I was wondering if anyone else was using it?

    If so what do you think?

    I think it looks pretty similar to IE7, but with a bit of improvements on the tabs area. But, none of my add-ons work! :-@

    I still prefer Firefox 3, so try again Microsoft!

    Yeah, I heard about the beta. I'll stick with Firefox as well though, never been a fan of Internet Explorer. Also, for websites that only work on Internet Explorer there's an add-on called IE-Tab, so I don't need it at all.

    Ive heard the second beta was released a few days ago, however I've not got round to trying it out at the moment.

    Lots have changes have been made under the hood rather than visual changes, I think the most welcomed improvement for web developers will be improved compliance with web standards.

    When it comes to web browsers im not fussy, im probly one of the few here who still use Internet Explorer as my main browser, however I have Firefox, Safari and Opera installed to makesure Digiex renders fine in all the main browsers.

    W4133D ever heard of something called a pop up blocker? There's lots of freeware ones that do really good! ;)

    IE has a popup blocker built in anyway, it has done for many years.
    I think it’s a must for any web browser these days.

    I gave up on IE long time ago. Firefox just seems so much faster and better.

    Personally I love it. I'd use it fully time but my main problem is that Firefox handles live bookmarks and I love this feature! So until another browser can give me live bookmarks, I don't use anything else.

    Use what your most happy with at the end of the day (Y)

    On the subject of web browsers I found this image and thought it was quite good.
