Internet Explorer 8 Beta released

ie8.jpgJust a quick need-to-know: Microsoft has made available the first public beta of the new Internet Explorer 8.

If you’re a designer for your news site, you’ll want to become familiar with the new browser as soon as you can and start looking at potential problem areas with your site’s design (though keep in mind that IE8 is still in beta). IE8 is touted as being very standards-compliant, so hopefully this’ll be the beginning of less CSS headaches for everyone. If you’re interested in more of the nitty gritty details of how IE8 works under the hood, check out the official IEBlog.
