"By default, IE8 browses the web the same way IE7 does."
I would have to disagree with that there. I code css for some sites and I have seen differences from IE7 to IE8. I wish MS would concentrate on the OS and leave the browsers up to Mozilla.
It would make life easier for the web developers and people would be more secure while browsing on their computers.
IE = Internal Error, Whats the need for it again??
