As promised by Microsoft earlier, the 2nd beta of Internet Explorer 8 was released today. I really never thought to say that about IE, but it feels “OK” and assuming the fact that it’s only a Beta 2, it has a bit of potential to stop losing big pieces of market share every month.
What’s new in Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2?
New Tab experience
Here’s what you are going to see after new tab opened
IE8 takes into account that there are often relationships between new tabs that users open, and the browser can make it a lot easier to figure out which tabs go with which.

IE8 has finally received a Smart Address Bar which will surely increase users experience.
As well as increased Safety and better web standards support.
Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 is available for 32- and 64-bit editions of Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008.
