Well, last week Microsoft sneaked out the latest version of their web browser Internet Explorer 8, available to download from the Microsoft IE site
To be honest I was expecting a bit more drama in the press, but it really was a whimper rather than a bang.

At work we had to make some last minute changes to get things compatible, but it's all smooth as a baby's bottom now - I expect there will be quite a few webbie peeps caught out by the IE8 launch
Our pan-European daily audience of about 40,000 has just about 3% with IE8 - though I suspect we can expect this to grow if and when they release it through Windows Update.

I actually quite like IE8 and although many people will use any excuse to have a good old whinge about Microsoft being too big and all that. For the sake of those peeps you might want to consider Firefox or Google Chrome, Safari or Opera that are also excellent browsers
