    Geez. I haven't even started using 7 (heck, half the sites I know won't work properly with 7) :P

    Does 8 actually work?

    Which version of Windows are you running it on?

    IE7's a different animal on Vista than it is on XP. Seen a lot
    of issues with ActiveX applets on Vista that don't happen in
    XP. I kinda surprised they even ported IE8 to XP. Oh well,
    I'll give 'er a test drive.

    Oh, how I love the idea of the "porn mode" in IE8. Lovely that M$ is actually listening to the masses, not about security or usability, but about keeping the IT guy from seeing that you're malware comes from porn sites.

    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    Wink

    I have been using the beta since it's 1st public release.

    I have had to use the switch from ie8 to ie7 compatability option a few times now, especially on the windows update site. But it looks like they have finally fixed that little bug and now they accept it as internet explorer.

    Almost makes me pine for the ol' days when your biggest worry was if your floppy was infected.

    Looks like "pr0n mode" isn't so private.

    "Forensic experts however found it trivial to retrieve the history, according to a test by Webwereld, an IDG affiliate in the Netherlands, and Fox IT, a Dutch firm specializing in IT security and forensic research."

    OK, excuse some ignorance on my part, but I haven't used Windows much in almost 2 years.... so WTF is Pron mode? I don't have IE8, so I'm interested.
