The browser wars are really just getting geared up again.
It actually really seemed like IE wasn't even going to be in the running this time around (IE7 can be summed up as "It sucks less"), but from all reports, IE8 is going to be very fast, very secure, and very standards compliant. Webkit is lightning fast, very standards compliant, and with some big js improvements coming down the pipe is turning into a very compelling choice. FF3 isn't going to be standing still on standards and will pass acid2, finally tracking down the memory and stability issues, and offering native UIs on every platform.
