IE 8 Gets a Date
IE 8 is edging closer
, and the reaction to the news has been mixed. Some are excited
about a safer, more reliable, more capable Microsoft browser, while others see
just more bloated, insecure software.
Meanwhile, many are giving Google's Chrome a whirl and finding it clean and
fairly fast, but way short on features. In fact, I did a long
analysis of Chrome based entirely on Redmond Report readers' feedback.
An IE 8 release candidate (which is more polished than beta code but not quite
ready for release -- so it really should just be called a late beta) is due
out the first quarter of next year. For me, I'll wait for fully finished code
before blasting or toasting the new release.
