Internet Explorer Ars takes a closer look at the Internet Explorer 8 beta (released yesterday), and concludes. "Niggles aside, IE8 is shaping up quite well. Clearly, a lot of work has been done on standards compliance, and it looks like it's paying off. If IE8's development continues down the path it's on, it will finally be a version of Internet Explorer fit for the 21st century."

Just handle CSS, please!

Like I've stated before, if it can properly handle CSS without the need for quirky IE-specific hacks, I'm all for it. It can be a real pain, or at least rather limiting, for those of us who want to use features that make web development easier.

They will have to fix bugs. I have a standard-compliant web site that renders properly in IE6, IE7, Opera, Firefox and Safari, but that breaks totally in IE8 (Unless I toggle the IE7 rendering engine).

I would check your site and make sure. IE8 is having some issues, however is rendering full standard compliant sites just fine. At least it is for me so far, and I have been making stuff to throw at it.
