    It's a beta, not a stable version yet.

    I personally won't bother unless it has some very important features that no other browser has. I quit using IE years ago.

    Agreed. I only use (IE) if i need to. I have also stop using Win for personal usage , prefer sticking to linux and mac- never look back. Firefox and safari are my preferential browsers.

    Safari is almost as bad as Internet Exploder 8. As I generally use a Mac first, I only use Safari on sites where other browsers aren't working correctly since it's such a security risk. A Mac was compromised through Safari in just seconds the other day.

    Windows 7 might rule the Windows world because it's not nearly as bad as Vista, but I seriously doubt it's going to kick anything.

    I tried IE 8 on WinXP and it's a bit better than IE 7, but it misbehaved a few times already.

    No, it's called a monopoly. doesn't mean they're right or good.

    Ever try buying a PC and think you have a choice of buying a non-MS OS?

    At IE8 site at microsoft, there is a video about its perfomance test, supposedly to tell ppl how "fast" it is. However, only after about 2 minutes plus of rhetoric later, then it shows you the test results. There is still a line in the video "How quickly can you get where you want to go and what you one to do". How ironic.

    Nevertheless, downloaded it hoping that is is a good replacement for IE7. Less than a minute, discovered that its tab browsing not working (When u open a link it new tab is just won't load that page). Microsoft never fails to disappoint.. switching back to Chrome.

    I wouldn't especially since it's still in Beta. Besides, I've been a very happy Firefox user for the past few years anyway.
    Explorer 8: Bugs, Crashes, Glitches, Oh My!
    Early adopters of Internet Explorer 8 say the new Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) browser is causing a range of unexpected issues, including missing Web content, system crashes, and Internet tools that don't function properly.

    They are both kicking my ass only lah... and I don't mean this in a good way.
    Eversince my last update of FireFox, it just keeps crashing... stupid thing!
    Now I will have to uninstall this and reinstall an older version.
    How come each time a newer version of FF comes out, it sucks more and more?
    I have been using FF for 10 years... it is just getting worse, esp. in the past year.
    Gone are the days where FF is a good and stable browser... these days, it seems that such does not exist.... sighhhh......

    Yahhh... I had been using tabs for years before one fine day, I found that Explorer finally has tabs too. Does Microsoft really expect us to go "Wowww! Tab browsing!!!". Come on man... get real!
