    "Iternet Explorer 8"

    March 19, 2009  |   By bozecubbies

    Version: Internet Explorer 8

    Pros

    much better then the beta versions,(not sure if this is final or a rc1}nice new features and add-ons such as web-slices and accelerators .great safety and security.

    Cons

    too SLOW!i tested it on all three of my PC'S and off of my laptop,all of them have over a 2 gig processor and at least 1 gig of ram and it was slow on all of them,i did notice it does take you to the website a lot faster then IE7 but page loads slow.

    Summary

    Mozilla still the Superior browser for speed and surfing and such,IE8 ok for a second browser to do your online banking and shopping cause it has great security.

    Updated on Mar 23, 2009

    IN some cases it can take anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds for a page to fully load.That is on a VERY fast broadband connection,so it is WAY to slow still.

    "Welcome to the NEW incomplete IE8"

    March 19, 2009  |   By jlynn33

    Version: Internet Explorer 8

    Pros

    Could be nice....eventually.

    Cons

    Broken Links, slow intializing, still no menu bar at top with a hack fix.

    Summary

    Changes your links you setup in IE7 to a folder called "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder" all of these have to be moved to the folder called "Favorites Bar". Annoying. Why couldn't Microsoft have done this for you?

    Updated on Mar 19, 2009

    Can't add anything to the favorites bar with the "add to favorites bar" button. Broken. It can be done by adding the site to save to your favorites, then dragging to the favorites bar folder. Microsoft, couldn't we have fixed this one as well BEFORE launch?

    "MS has done a fine job"

    March 19, 2009  |   By Dadohayton

    Version: Internet Explorer 8

    Pros

    It's still slower than Firefox. It's not as smooth as Firefox is on my Windows Vista Home premium and far more important it lacks add-ons as good and the ones found on firefox. I almost forgot... it's a memory hog when compared to firefox.

    Cons

    It's faster than older versions of IE but let's face it... IE only dominates the market becuase it comes along with Windows, otherwise Firefox would be the the leading browser.

    Summary

    MS has certainly made some good improviments on IE8 but Firefox is faster and has the whole ecosystem of add-ons on its side. Other browsers like Google Chrome and Opera are faster than IE8. But if you are a big fan of MS and its Web Browser you should definitaly download it. I'll keep it on my PC but Firefox is still my favourite.

    Version: Internet Explorer 8

    Pros

    I am still a user twenty years plus.

    Cons

    I don't like the fact that it is not D L SERVICES INC product.

    Summary

    The competitive advantage should be clear then and now that Microsoft?s positional advantages is still not mathced. Microsoft?s competitiveness has position Microsoft
    As a MNE that creates opportunities for SME?s. We are still promoting The Microsoft Store at http://dlservicesincservices.com
