Microsoft Makes IE8 (RC1) Available

According to Redmond, IE8 is faster, easier to use and more secure than its competitors. Bold claims?

Details in the news article

Considering that they'd never announce it as being a bug-filled slugathon, then they are almost default claims. Wasn't the amazingly horrible IE7 supposed to be the secure responsive browser for all eternity?

Aye agreed. Still, I'm going to download it to see whether any of the claims are true.

At least it should be better than the current IE7.

Isn't IE8 in the Windows 7 Beta? If so, when I used it yesterday it was pretty [email protected] tbh.

It's still something that displays and interacts with web pages - what is there to go wrong ?

Almost a 20 year old tool (the web browser).
