Well for those that enjoy testing Beta software... DO NOT install on a Production System (you've been warned)

As posted on DailyTech
Microsoft Releases Internet Explorer 8 Beta

Microsoft Download site: Internet Explorer 8 Readiness Toolkit

Here is the download link for Firefox 3.0b3 Beta
click to download - Firefox 3 Beta 3

Quote:
DailyTech reported last month that Microsoft was on the verge of releasing test versions of the Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) web browser. Microsoft made good on that promise today with the public release of IE8 Beta 1 at the MIX Conference in Las Vegas.

The beta browser is available for a wide range of Windows operating systems including Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003 SP2. According to Microsoft, IE8 Beta 1 will not install on "prerelease versions of Windows Vista SP1" or "checked versions of Windows".

IE8 includes a number of new features including the "Activities" contextual data management service, a new Favorites Bar, an improved Phishing Filter, Automatic Crash Recovery and “Webslices”.

Microsoft software architect Alexander Strauss goes on to explain Webslices, stating, “Webslices are simply portions of arbitrary websites to which a user can subscribe to. This enables a user to have updates of sites he regularly visits right at his fingertips without navigating to the respective sites. A webslice behaves just like an RSS Feed. The slice itself will be added to the Favorites bar of IE8 when a user subscribes to a webslice. In order to subscribe to a slice it must be discovered. The discovery is quite easy as IE8 will display a special symbol if a page offers a Webslice.”

IE8 will face some stiff competition from Mozilla later this year. Mozilla's Firefox 3.0 web browser is currently in the Beta 3 phase and has received generally favorable reviews around the web.

I have a good program on my computer at work that has every single version of IE since version 3.

Still think Firefox is far better, fingers crossed IE8 will be a bit better and will adhere to web standards a bit better than IE7.

No FF has the web developer add in
and you can adjust ccs live and see the changes as they happen.
Even Dream weaver is slower at it then FF wink

That wouldnt be FF out of the box though would it? Hence, most people wouldnt be able to use th developer add-in to render pages, because they wouldnt install it (well wouldnt know anything about it lol).

A system that you use matey. IE. One that isnt used solely for testing new software etc...

In other words, 99.9% of user's should'nt use it.
