I saw screenshots of IE 8 - and I know it's still beta but it looks like IE 7 with office ribbons UI. Talk about freaking innovation right there. Ha!

Now if Microsoft wants to put innovation to IE 8 - they need to put a talking dog or a wizard with a flying broomstick on the bottom right corner of the browser giving me informative advice. Like how I can close the browser window by clicking on the X button on the top right window. Or have the talking dog take a crap on the bottom right corner of the page when it detects a web site without SSL. Now that's innovation!
