Windows Internet Explorer 8

Recommended Posts

As of today, Thursday, March 19, 2009, Internet Explorer 8 has been released.

Click to download

 

 

 

Whether or not you use Internet Explorer as your main browser, it is tied to the operating system and as such, I would encourage all users to upgrade as soon as possible as Internet Explorer 8 introduces a number of security and compatibility upgrades. You can download the new version of the browser from Microsoft's website by clicking the large IE icon above and clicking the orange button labeled "Download Now" on the left side of the screen.

 

 

 

This is not an advertisement as Tip.It staff have posted software updates from Microsoft on the forums numerous times before, and I would encourage a Tip.It moderator to turn this topic into a global sticky. Thanks.

Yep. Safest browser on the net.

If the CORPORAL beast is this hard, imagine how hard a GENERAL or COLONEL beast would be. a corporal is not even an admirable rank in armies that use that ranking system.

 

Yeah, it is a pking minigame, so any arguments anybody makes will probably be biased.

The best way this will end :Everybody just says,"I'm not arguing with you anymore, goodbye."

The worst way this will end: I don't really know, psychological warfare? Worldwide thermonuclear war? Pie eating contest?

1- Not as many people will read it in tech and computers.. It actually is somewhat important.

 

 

 

2- He said it has important security updates, and as it's tied to the operating system (as he said again), it might be smart to get. Did you even read it all?

Yes I did. It is smart decision to get it, if you're going to use IE. But really, there are better browsers, and we're not in imminent danger using IE at the moment.

Good grief guys, he's trying to be helpful. :roll:

 

 

 

Also, how do you know the new ie hasn't surpassed firefox? Granted it probably hasn't, but you probably can't prove it. Your flippant attitude suggests you haven't even looked at it. 10 to 1 odds Microsoft looks at what its competitors do to find out what they can improve.

 

 

 

For those who use the official rs client off the main site, that is a extension of IE as I recall. While the majority of players use unofficial clients, there still are some (myself included) who use the official one.

Don't use Internet Explorer unless you want to make yourself an easier victim to hackers/viruses.

 

 

 

I hope they've realised how [cabbage] their old one was and actually improved it.

 

I sincerely doubt it'd be up to Firefox standards but I'm just one of many waiting to be proven wrong.

They both have a long ways to go to surpass Opera. ;)

 

 

 

And yes, whether anyone likes it or not, Internet Explorer has the majority market share of all browsers right now, and as such this is fairly important to post in the most populated forum. However, I'd do the same for Firefox 4; maybe Opera 10.

:thumbup:

 

 

 

Just opened up IE8 first the first time in a while. Don't think I could ever go back...

 

 

 

Off-topic: As long as we're on the topic of browser speed, it's fun watching how fast Google Chrome loads =P

Yay opera!! I tried Opera 10 Alpha and got no problems (using atm) I'd like to see full release if it's good at alpha :D

 

 

 

OT: Interesting.... I'm install it to see if SK go any faster.

Opera 10 is going to be the god of web browsers... passing the Acid3 test at 100% score. But let's try to keep this topic mostly to IE8, hm? ;)

Yes, IE8 was just RTM (Release to manufacturing), which means the final version. It's been out of beta for a while now.

I was really unimpressed by the IE8 beta, I'll download the finished version now though, and see if it is any better.

from using ie, firefox, and chrome, id say that chrome is the fastest to load. However with some internet savvy i belive you can make firefox just as fast by tweaking the number of connections it allows per page.

Ehhh... I should say good things about IE8 since I have a friend

 

that works on the project at Microsoft...

 

 

 

But...

 

 

 

Frankly... IE has way too many problems for me to deal with.

 

I'm still going to be using Firefox. :\

 

 

 

Thanks for the info though, I'll inform my friends that use it though. :P
