"An Improvement"

August 17, 2008  |  By Zachy2411

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 8 beta 1

Pros

Better than IE7, doesn't freeze the entire computer, and sites respond snappier. A good comeback for an awful web browser.

Cons

I can't download things, it freezes!

"Why even bother?"

August 07, 2008  |  By carltornell

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 8 beta 1

Pros

It is difficult to think of anything you like about this software. I use Opera and, to some extent, Firefox, on my laptop, but in my office I am stuck with IE because we are not allowed to install new programs. This allows me to compare different on a daily basis.

Cons

IE is slow and unituitive. It is difficult to understand and difficult to clean from data you do not want stored on your computer, thus being a major risk factor.

"Good, but a developers beta"

July 31, 2008  |  By siyangqiu

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 8 beta 1

Pros

faster, ie 7 pages support.

Cons

i hate the slight ui tweaks. acid 3 support is a joke.It won't be a problem for anyone, because ie has most market share no matter how idiotic some web developer is, they won't alienate ie users because of its huge market share.

"Awesome"

July 18, 2008  |  By Yacdogg

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 8 beta 1

Pros

I love it, one thing though. It should not be called a Beta ! It is a programmers beta. Once the final version comes you every will love it.

Cons

Like I said, this beta is not for the average user.

"Excuse me............this is just the beta version!"

July 03, 2008  |  By denigma78

 |  Version: Internet Explorer 8 beta 1

Pros

This is the beta version of the product not the official release so it should be graded as such. I'm not sure why it is getting 1, 2, or even 3 stars. It's best to download any beta product months after it has came out so that "most" of the bugs are worked out.

Cons

IE 8 has made tremendous strides in speed of pulling up websites and security. I noticed that from the get go as soon as I downloaded it and started surfing the web. The interface for internet explorer is just fine. A web browser does not have to be pretty or dressed up like Mozilla Firefox to be effective. You have to consider IE was around before opera and mozilla so of course it is going to be the focal point of most malware creators and has more users than firefox and opera. I gave it 5 stars b/c you can notice the difference in speed and finally it has some of the same security features as firefox.
