While Internet Explorer 7 had only one good feature (are you curious now?), the upcoming Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) is slowly becoming a real web browser. But is it enough?
Web developers doomed IE7. Hours of wasted time, checking… Yes, it still breaks a web. Let’s do more coding… It took a while for Microsoft to realize that it’s a good thing for any web browser to support web standards.

Google + Microsoft? Yes. Looks like two giants co-operated (which is great). Apparently, Google and Microsoft IE engineers were working together in order to make Gmail more IE6 compatible.
Some information about the upcoming Microsoft event.

Not so long to wait. Microsoft expects to release Internet Explorer 8 Beta after Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP 1). They’ve promised to release a beta version of IE 8 till June. But we all know how Microsoft changes most of their software release dates, so maybe July? With the “leaked Internet Explorer 8 features”, it is also know that IE8 will be compatible with Windows Vista and Windows XP. However, due technical differences, some additional security features will work on Windows Vista only.

Internet Explorer news… I am sure you do know that annoying “Click to Activate” “feature”. Good news, Microsoft had finally licensed the technologies from Eolas, and that means… Yes, no more “Click to Activate”. However, you will have to wait a bit. The first preview release which is called “Internet Explorer Automatic Component Activation Preview” will be released in December. You can expect it in the next Windows Service Packs (Vista SP1 and XP SP3) pre-releases as well. Finally, it will be integrated directly into IE in April 2008.
