    Yeah, so beta 1 got me hooked, beta 2 is just amazing. I'm really looking forward to the final release of Internet Explorer 8. I know they "stole" alot from Fire Fox but in reality the things they stole dont come standard in a firefox installation. For instance you wuold have to hunt down at least 2-3 different pugins to get the functionality of a webslice. Anyway take a look at it, see if you like it.

    It still doesen't show the page correct tho lol. In my template, now I need 3 CSS files, 1 for every other browser, 1 for IE 7 and down, and one for IE8

    Been using Internet Explorer since version 3 and Firefox since 0.6 beta.

    Why does Microsoft need to take a beating before they feel incentivized to catch up to the competition?

    I haven't tried the IE8 Beta. Still might get around to it. Yet again I might just install the final product.

    Agreed. And I got so mad when my teacher said that I couldn't use Firefox on the school computers. She doesn't know what shes missing.
