It was only officially released yesterday, 2008 was when the beta version was released.

I tried Internet Explorer 8 and hated it. In fact, I had so many problems with it such as images or complete websites not showing up due to incompatibility (compatibility mode usually didn't fix the problem) that I had to restore my laptop to an earlier date to get rid of it as I couldn't uninstall it!

That's just it though IE7 doesn't work, it's not compliant with Web Standards for a start, has more holes than Swiss cheese and is about as flexible as a concrete floor. IE8 is better and some of the new ideas are intereting, but I still prefer Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome myself though :thumbsup:.

thanks for your help guys i will look into other options like firefox and stuff and then make up my mind

google chrome is my preference - never crashes and uses very little resources. They also sorted the incompatibility probs with hotmail - download it in seconds and give it a go. It's zippy fast... much better than FF and a world better than the IE crash monster...

Erm no.

Faster than Firefox at the moment yes, but featureless in comparison to firefox.
