Internet Explorer 8

Overall, IE8 is a great development over earlier Microsoft browsers, and I believe it is on a par with rivals such as FireFox and Safari in terms of features, performance and ease of use. This may not be adequate to entice back users who have defected to FireFox over the last few years, but it is absolutely worth the upgrade for those still using older versions of IE.

The most important feature of IE8 is its greater adherence to standards such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The positive aspect of this is that it drives superior Web interoperability, but it may cause problems with web content designed around the idiosyncrasy found in earlier versions of IE.
