    Calling Joe Perez - IE8

    Hi Joe,

    I notice you are using IE8 (from the (Who's online) window. I was considering upgrading myself, but was concerned with how it reacts to Vista (Home edition) and IE settings and performance. What is your take on IE8 so far, based on using it?

    Tx for any heads up!
    Regards,
    Rudi

    It is BETA. The performance on the two systems where I have it is acceptable for me. Like everyone else that has it, I've found some sites that don't work properly. That ranges from being unusable to just having the layout be different that what is normal. A couple of sites have given me a warning that my browser is not supported. Usually running those in compatibility mode gets around that issue.

    I'd recommend that you wait at least until IE8 RC is released (which should be in the next week or two). If you do try it remember that it is still BETA even though a release candidate.

    Yes, I am aware that it is BETA. I was just interested in someones opinions who has already used it and observed its ins and outs. Thanks for the comments about its performance. I will take your advice to wait a week or two.

    Cheers

    Rudi,
    I too am using IE 8, with IE7 Pro, with the MSN toolbar, I have the default set to compatibility mode as Joe mentioned and so far all is well.
    Thanks John
