Windows 7: Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 Released

Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 Released

The IE team at Microsoft has released the second beta of Internet Explorer 8. Contrary to the first beta, which was aimed at developers, this one one is aimed at normal people like you and me. The list of new features and changes is decent, all focused around three themes (marketing alert):

"We focused our work around three themes: everyday browsing (the things that real people do all the time), safety (the term most people use for what we've called 'trustworthy' in previous posts), and the platform (the focus of Beta 1, how developers around the world will build the next billion web pages and the next waves of great services)."

It wasn't a silly question. I'm using beta 7000 and all of my problems are related to IE8 beta. I'd love an update.
