It’s that time of the month again: web browser performance and benchmark results. This time it’s going to be a little bit different.

That’s creative. Appreciating all the IE8 beta testers work, Microsoft Corp. will be giving away great workmate toolkits. The following email was sent to them earlier this week:
“Thank you for your hard work during the Internet Explorer 8 Technical Beta Program. Your dedication to making this product the best it can be is truly amazing. We would like to personally thank you by sending you a small token of our appreciation. We will be sending you an Internet Explorer 8 Workmate Toolkits (see attached images). If you do not want this, then simply respond to this mail with “Thanks, but No Thanks.”
The waiting is over. Mozilla has finally released the very first Firefox 3.5 release candidate (RC) build.
Besides usual performance and stability improvements, Firefox 3.5 introduces HTML 5 tags support, such as: < video >, < audio >, downloadable fonts, etc. Also: private browsing feature, location aware browsing and more. For a complete list of changes, visit here.
Thanks to Mihailo Bursac (djix) and Shane Bundy for sending this.
Neowin.net reports that Microsoft Australia will be giving away $10 000 to one lucky IE8 user. The idea is really simple and that’s how it works:
“1) Ditch the web browser you’re using. If you try to find the $10,000 with your current browser, you’ll get nowhere.
2) Download Microsoft’s best ever browser, Internet Explorer 8. It’s the only browser capable of cracking all the clues.
3) Follow @tengrand_IE8 on Twitter for the daily clues. Clues will be released at random times from Friday 19th June.
4) Use the clue and your brilliance to deduce where the $10,000 is hidden.”
Yes, it’s open to Australians only.
