Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 (Developer Preview)

Microsoft has made released a beta version of Internet Explorer 8, this version has been put out to allow Web Developers and Designers alike to have a look at some of the new features.

I would not recommend this to the general user however as it’s likely to be buggy.

Internet Explorer 7 to be Deployed via Automatic Updates

Microsoft has indicated in it’s Internet Explorer development blog that it will be pushing Internet Explorer 7 as a new update via Automatic Update. This is both good and bad, I’ll leave that up to you. Personally I feel that this will be for the best as the majority of users will be ignorant of the fact that a new version is coming and is on the way. But this does pose some big questions, how will those people adapt with the plethora of now features.
