It looks like Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) Beta 2 will be released within a couple of months, in the third quarter to be exact. As for now, Microsoft asks web site owners to make sure that their pages will be displayed correctly on IE 8. Check “Your Web site may not display correctly in Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1” article for more details about web pages compatibility.
How does it sound? I’ll start with a quote from John’s Blog which should explain everything:
So we asked ourselves what we can do to help unlock some of this latent potential — and started thinking about whether there’s a project we can do at Mozilla that does a few things:
Collects & shares data in a way that embodies the user control & privacy options which are at Mozilla’s core.
Enables everyone — from individual researchers and entrepreneurs (both the social and capitalist types) to the largest organizations in the world — to take usage data, mix it up, mash it up, derive insight, and hopefully share some of that insight with others.
Helps move the conversation around data collection and web usage forward, to help consumers make more informed decisions.
It seems obvious to us that there’s lots to be done here, and lots that we can do, if we can work with our broad community to figure it out.
According to Per Thomas post in Opera Mini Blog, the new Opera Mini 4.1 will be released in next week.

We are waiting…

Opera Dragonfly… The big secret was finally revealed. As it was expected, Opera Dragonfly is developer tools. Firefox had Firebug for a long time so it’s not a big surprise that Opera decided to create something like that as well… As David Storey said: “Opera has been lacking real developer tools far too long”. Alpha version will be released on May 6th, 2008. There aren’t many known details yet, we’re waiting.
It looks like we’re going to see a new Opera Mini Beta release soon. It’s not known yet, whether that will be Opera Mini 5, Opera Mini 4.5 or any other version (at least Opera Mini team is not telling that). It will be interesting to see what new features were added and what was improved.
