Have downloaded Internet Explorer 8 (beta) and initially I am impressed.

Has anyone else done the same? - Impressions?

    Why????? Firefox, Opera, Safari then IE if I really have to.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Come on folks. Let's all leave the browser wars back in the 90s. There's no need for them here.

    As it happens, it looks like IE8 will be pretty decent. I'm looking forward to a stable version in a wee while.

    I would rather use sandpaper as my chamois then use Internet Explorer
  • +1 for Firefox v3, cant see myself taking the backward step that would be IE again :wink:.

    Browser wars back in the 90's? I was in the original fight back in the jungle of 1982, my 48k ZX Spectrum was better than my mates Commodore 64 :roll: .

    Firefox is fine for home users who think they're "socking it to MS" but in a corporate Windows environment Firefox just cannot compete with IE.

    I use Firefox on my mac and IE on Windows. And Safari on my phone. But they're just commodity items so who really cares?

    Opera, but tbh, i'll use anything that is customisable and has tabbed browsing,

    But the tabbed browsing in firefox just feels more thought out than IEs. Seriously, you think this looks OK, but it just feels like they made a rather poor effort to copy other browsers without trying it for themselves. But nvrmind, and if i really wanted to sock it to Bill Gates I would buy a Apple (but sadly I'm a cheapskate)

    I wouldn't use it it were available for the Mac. Firefox is my browser of choice followed by Safari.

    Like all Microsoft products, including it's many forms of Windows rubbish, it is over complicated and unreliable.
