Controlling IE 8

Microsoft is proud of IE 8 and, from what I hear, it's a pretty good browser (and will be a key part of Windows 7).

But IE 8 isn't for everyone. Many corporations have custom browsers apps, and if a new browser breaks them, there's heck to pay. The answer is an admin tool that blocks the installation of IE 8 until it's fully tested.

I asked last week why some shops use IE, and today's Mailbag section is full of highly intelligent responses. Have a look!
