Microsoft Releases IE 8 Beta

Just what we needed, another version of standards-incompliant IE to support. Yet, here it is, in all it’s terrible glory. This release apparently just playing feature-catch-up with Firefox, so one begins to wonder just what the point is. Like, why waste all this development money on a free application that is vastly inferior to the competition you could try these out.

Anyway, if you’re a developer and want to get a head start on creating all those hacks and alternate stylesheets, you can download the beta here: IE 8 Beta. (Windows only)

Note: This will overwrite any existing installation of IE.
