    The long overdue Internet Explorer 8 is FINALLY released

    Today, we’re excited to release the final build of Internet Explorer 8 to the web. It’s now available for download from microsoft.com/ie8. It’s available in 25 languages, across Windows Vista, XP and Server in 32-bit and 64-bit versions

    -Dean Hachamovitch

    Faster

    More secure

    IE blocks over a million phishing attacks a month. It also has a huge impact on protecting against malware – our data shows that one in forty users running IE8 have been protected from malware each week. An independent study shows that IE8 protects against twice as many malware attacks as any other browser. IE8 has click-jacking protection, per user ActiveX, cross-browser scripting attack prevention and many other security enhancements that will make end-users’ online lives safer.

    And works! (for real), out of the box, and protects it's users!

    We discovered that users don’t care about why a browser crashes when it fails, they care about getting back quickly to where they were and minimizing downtime. In IE8, we now have tab crash isolation – when one tab of the browser fails, it doesn’t bring down the entire browser

    There are over 1,200 accelerators, web slices and visual search providers out there already today, including Digg, ESPN, OneRiot, Amazon, Sina, TaoBao, and Yahoo.

    Here's where you can get rid of your old stupid IE7 and get IE 8

    (Did I mention that it's free?)

    It's no secret, I run with 5 different browsers on my machine. IE, FireFox, Opera, Safari and Chrome. They're all good, they work most of the time.

    But the only one that I REALLY trust is Internet Explorer. And I have pretty good reasons for doing so. But now it's more compelling than ever! Especially the part concerning SmartScreen technology. It stops you from visiting malicious sites that may harm your computer or steal your information.

    There are tons of new improvements in IE8 and I for one am reaping the benefits, it's FAST, just watch that video and I'm sure you'll understand why I say it's fast!

    Go ahead ... Indulge yourself 

    An interesting historical factoid...

    The release of IE8 isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning. It’s easy to underestimate this opportunity. Ten years ago, we shipped IE5. Wikipedia credits IE5 with introducing AJAX to the world, even though nobody was talking about AJAX at the time. The next step is up to you. What developers do with IE8 makes all the difference

    You know, I have no idea! But I wouldn't rule it out. After all Microsoft has Silverlight for Mac, and Office for Mac, so why not a browser for Mac as well?

    In other news, IE8 is almost making 2% Market share in the first day. It took Firefox couple of years to do that, and Chrome is still around 1.18%. Opera is still struggling with 0.9%

    Looks like people are happyily recieving IE8 so far

    I dont know why, but for some reason, ever since I started using the EI8, everything seems to be going at a slower pace.
    Am I the only having problems with it?

    Slower!? No way, mine is blazing fast! Even on an older XP machine that I have at home. It runs like a banshee out of hell! :)
    However, you might have some incompatible add-ons that are slowing your whole experience down
    I can see you're using GoogleToolBar v5. You might be happy to know that V6 is out and an upgrade might help the overall performance. It might be the reason for the slowdown you're feeling

    Thanks for the info, I'll try that.......one thing though, how did you know that I'm using google toolbar v5?
    Yeah, I admit, I'm kinda slow when it comes to these things. :)

    It's part of your "User Agent"(UA) string. It's how your browser identifies itself to the server. Think of it as your browser's calling driver's license. It tells the server what kind of add-ons it has so that the server can serve it content that is suitable. Or even redirect it to get specific additions to help it work better
