Well, IE8 break other MS products too.
As it is, MS Flight Simulator X (FSX) uses (some type of) html to display the all so vital "kneeboard", and for whatever reason, with ie8, the kneeboard is broken.
Where the content usually goes, there's now a big black square.
Very irritating, very bad that this happens to an MS program.
I did try after reading this thread, to enable "compatibility mode" for all pages, but that hasn't helped.
So a big
and a big
to MS for that.
