IE 8 Beta 2 - ready to download
Microsoft has announced that Internet Explorer 8 - Beta 2 is available for download. But, before you rush out and download it, read what others are saying, and why you might want to wait until the full version gets released.
One of the new features, the so-called "porn mode," or private browsing, is an interesting development. Even funnier is that the private browsing feature is the default mode. Just what is Microsoft saying about its customers?
As always, I recommend against putting beta version on your production machines. Use a throw-away computer to test software. Better yet, use a virtual disk or Faronics Deep Freeze. Or ... skip IE altogether and get a Mac.
