    Hey,

    any of you other cnuts using IE8?
    I've just been offered IE8 for Vista x64 during the standard windows update
    which is a bit of a surprise.

    I'd give it a go but don't feel that compelled to just yet.

    Does it **** up internet banking and online shopping as new releases of IE
    usually do?

    I installed it on two XP machines.

    On my GF's laptop it worked perfectly


    On my own machine it made my whole system unstable so I uninstalled it
    and luckily no harm was done.

    At that point I switched over to Linux for once and all and said to hell
    with it.

    And? Did IE8 work better on Linux?

    I installed it just now, apart from it telling me that children's BBC is
    similar to Google it seems pretty good.

    IE8 hasn't been offered to me during AutoUpdate. Might be because I'm a
    cheap ****, ofcourse.

    I've been using it for a day or so now, it's actually a really good
    improvement over IE7.
    I was pretty shocked to see it being forced down my throat, especially for
    64bit Vista.
    Still it's not been that much use so I may find it fucks up somewhere but
    there's a compatibility button to press if a site doesn't work properly and
    it reverts back to the IE7 way of doing things.

    The biggest improvement is the address bar and the way it roots around in
    your faves and history to see if you're after something you've been to
    before.
    Could be embarrassing for some though.

    I'm certain you'll approve.

    IE 8 is the default browser in 7 RC and running "acceptable", but I use
    Opera for everyday browsing.

    TA.
    As a MSDN subscriber, I have access to RC's already. W7 wouldn't install
    on my test box and I couldn't be arsed to find out why not. I'll give it
    a try on another machine when I find the time.

    Mmm, as you know, I'm a lazy **** and Win 7 installed flawlessly in Vm
    workstation (easy install) in exactly 18 minutes from booting the iso, with
    only 1 gig. assigned RAM.
    As it is running now, I bet that I dump Vista for 7, real soon.

    I dumped Vista having used it for 3 weeks. It reminded me of Win ME.

    Likewise,but to be fair,it was just after Vista came out.
    Nevertheless,at the time,half of the drivers weren't available,which
    obviously made Vista unusable.
