IE8 Beta 2 for those interested:
I got this and it said that I have to remove IE8 Beta1 to install it ... Why the heck can't I just install it over it? sheesh ..
A) the files might conflict and this will make debugging that much harder
B) fresh installs are just better
C) because you were told to
so do as your told
think i'ma try it out after i get back from work.
Anyone use this yet? Is it faster? Did it cure world Cancer and AIDS yet?
I'm using it, it's faster than IE7.
it has colorfull, un-gray default favicons
all the rage
They are going to hold a press conference next week regarding the aids thing. Although, it has been known to cure the common cold.
And, carpo - Do I have to do what I am told ?? I am in a rebellious mood .. lol
I had to uninstall ie8 beta 1 from the updates to get it out ! But other than that, it is installed. I am liking it so far. I will play with it for a while to see a diff.
There is a ton of stuff on the internets all about this. Biggest difference between Beta 1 and Beta 2 is that Beta 1 was a "developer release" while this version is supposed to be ready for everyday. Obviously not RTM so there are still bugs to be expected, but it seems cool.
The pr0n mode seems popular
I personally like the colors on the tabs to show you the groups of tabs and how you can close a group of tabs with a single click - just wish you could close all other tabs except for the group
Some nice new enhancements. Also much better with CSS/styles. Faster for sure.
Check out A Comprehensive Look at Internet Explorer Beta 2 for more about changes and enhancements.
this thread has glue, lets help make the ie 8 as good as possible
I found issues with flash sites already.
report those, I am having trouble scrolling, very choppy
I had some issues also but I hit compatability mode and the flash is now working on that site
trying to cut and paste creates a scroll instead for me, anyone else?
by the way, how to report bugs and sites that don't work?
and find really sux
I can't stand how the browser jumps around while you are typing, I want it to stay still till I get finnished typing and push the enter button
