    Update IE7 to IE8?

    I have been interested in knowing if IE8 is at a secure level to install on my machine which is currantly running IE7,!

    I keep reading comments that users are condeming IE8 with hang up's instable at times and other annoying things
    which, if true, would be a reason to delay installing IE8.

    Additionally, Ms, Bradley hasn't had any comments regarding IE8 as a download to consider in the Win Secrests newsletter!

    Any firm opion's?

    Thank you for your vies.

    IE 8 is much more secure than IE 7. Also Ms Bradley did, I believe, a long time ago recommend the upgrade. You have Win XP so IE 9 is NOT available to you.
