While Beta 1 was for developers, we think that anyone who browses or works on the web will enjoy IE8 Beta 2. Before the team blogs about our Beta 2 in detail, here’s an overview of what you’ll find in IE8.

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).

Everyday Browsing
We looked very hard at how people really browse the web. We looked at a lot of data about how people browse and tried a lot of different designs in front of many kinds of people, not just technologists. As tempting as it is to list here all the changes both big and small in IE8, we’ll take a more holistic approach. That’s how we built the product and how we’d like to talk about it.

From our customer research, we saw that the bulk of user activity outside of web pages involved tabs and “navigation” – the act of getting to the site the user wants to get to. We also knew that adding features has an impact only if they’re “in the flow” of how people actually use the product. Another menu item might matter in a checklist on a blog somewhere, but won’t matter to real people browsing. That’s why IE8’s New Tab experience is so remarkable: it’s obvious – after you see it.

I was thinking about switching to Firefox. After all, it is a quality browser. However, IE8 has addressed my reasons for considering to switch, and continues to add default functionality that Firefox doesn't have.

I'm still using IE 6.0 and don't see the big deal. Been updating crap for years and finally had it, but then again - why update it if it already works? I remember when IE 5.0 came out and was quick to update, and was I sorry, as I saw many bugs in the software. Was stuck with that damn thing until they finally released 6.0.

You may call me "old-fashioned" or "out-dated" but one thing I know: upgrading isn't always the best thing...

Think I'll wait a few more years... ;)
