Although the 2nd beta of Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) will be released on August only, new Beta 2 features were revealed earlier today.
Frame Process Merging
Instead of running 2 processes every time you launch Internet Explorer 8, it will use 1 now = improved startup performance.
More tab processes
Adding more processes gives users much better isolation in the event of a failure. If each tab is in its own process, websites are completely isolated from each other.
Virtual tabs lets you navigate across Protected Mode in the same tab since we just switch the process under the tab to the correct integrity level
Automatic Crash Recovery
In the event of a crash, Automatic Crash Recovery is designed to get you back to browsing as quickly as possible. If IE8 crashes, now it will not only recover
The travel log (your back/forward history)
Which tab was active
And the last new feature:
Windows Error Reporting (aka Watson).
In the event of a crash or a hang, you may have received a choice to “send information to Microsoft”.
