IE8 first impressions
No site breakages yet, but then FF is my default browser, not IE. The tab management is nice. Also good to see that IE8 has a built-in Web Developer tool, but FF has had this for a long time. IE8 seems not so much innovation as catch-up. Accelerators, stealth surfing, some toolbar updates etc. Where have we seen these before? Oh yes, most of the other browsers. IE8 seems a bit slower than its predecessor, too. Supposedly more secure, but within the first day of its release a security flaw has been found. So we can expect a flood of patches. I will probably stick to FF, especially given the slower performance of IE8.
