IE 8 Closing In

IE 8 has moved from the beta stage to what used to be called a late beta, but Microsoft now says is a release candidate (RC). In this case, IE 8 is on RC1, which I guess means that once it hits RC2, 3, 4 or 5 we may have a finished product.

Release candidate also means the software has all the final features and UI elements. I'm curious to see how this new IE test release works. Many of you have written me and had big problems with IE 8 stability; in some cases the beta interfered with the rest of the PC.

If you have IE 8 RC1, write me at [email protected]. I'm doing a feature story based on your reactions!
