    Internet Explorer 8.0 Beta 1 (7.0.5730.13)

    Has anyone installed IE 8.0 Beta 1? I understand that's the newest version available. If so, your opinion about it, please.

    Does it really say MSN on the homepage and mention Hotmail? I used FileHippo and it mentions it, otherwise I'm fully updated.

    I'm waiting until the official (non-beta) version is released.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Even though you can install IE 8 beta 1, it is targeted for developers so they can begin to change web sites that are written for older IE specifications only. You'll find many sites that do not render properly right now. I'd wait at least until beta 2, currently expected in August, if not longer.

    I will too, I don't generally install anything in beta,except programs that I have run for ages and have never given me problems.

    Joe, I have decided to NOT install it until it's released from beta. IE7 is working just fine, so the old saying "If it ain;t broke, don't fix it applies here.Same thing goes for the update for Windows XP. I'll let the brave ones be the testers before I get my feet wet.
