The 1st Release Candidate of Internet Explorer 8 is now available to download and use.
IE8 in the next in a long line Internet browsers from Microsoft. IE8 Beta 2 could be a little flaky at times (it was a beta after all), so this version should be better.
Since Beta 2, some of the changes in RC1 include the following:
ClickJacking protection. The SmartScreen Filter now includes the ability to help detect and prevent “ClickJacking” which is a malicious technique of tricking web users into revealing confidential information or taking control of their computer.
InPrivate. Helps to protect user’s data and privacy from being retained “locally” on a PC. InPrivate Browsing and InPrivate Filtering can now be used independently.
Performance improvements. Reduces the time that users must wait when starting the browser, opening a “new tab”, or loading a page.
User interface and experience updates to help ensure a better user experience.
