Microsoft’s IE 8 Beta 2 released

Today is the big day after a few days playing with beta 1 of Microsoft’s new Internet Explorer 8 I finally upgraded to beta 2 and have to say I am surprised! This new version was released today.

This is by far the fastest and best looking browser on the market at the moment. The extension support java, ActiveX… is far ahead of any other vendor.

The greatest new features are the new tabs and the webslices. The tabs run all as a separate process that means in case a tab locks up only this tab disappears and you can still use all the other open ones. The webslices allow you to open several dynamic websites in your own private main page.
