I'm so excited of this release so I went to read the features of IE 8. Well some of the text still pointing to Internet Explorer 7.0 hmmm.. Anyway, let's explore the features that will benefit us as a users.
- Tabbed browsing. I saw this already in IE 7.0 released. I haven't explore much about Quick Tabs and Tab Groups. I wanted to see in IE 8.0 to drag and drop to another open browser just like the Google Chrome. I have nothing to share for Instant Search Box, RSS Feeds, Favorites, etc. I think this should be part of standard internet explorer.
- Dynamic Security Protection. ActiveX opt-in is a good addition to prompt users options to install it. I suggest to disable it, you can go back and activate this feature from the Add-on Manager. The Phishing Filter is definitely a good feature to protect you against potential or known fraudulent websites.
Hmm reading these features seems the same from the last released of Internet Explorer 7.0. I think they haven't updated the website yet for IE 8.0. I will need to go back to this article again for updates. Though the download for Internet Explorer 8.0 is ready for you. Check it out.
