IE version 8 Beta 2 thoughts

I’ve been using IE 8 beta 2 since it’s September release.  There are a ton of features that make it a worthy upgrade, but it has it’s share of problems.   One bug that is particularly annoying is certain sites that want to do a pop-up due to a security change cause a flood of new IE windows.  The only resolution I have found is to open task manager, sort by CPU used, and kill the top IE process.  This closes all IE windows, which is a pain but at least the problem is resolved.   I’d wait for the next release if you haven’t already installed it, but if you want to, here is a link to try it.

The IE team posted an update saying a new release candidate is due in the first part of 2009.  I look forward to the release.  read more here:
