Internet Explorer The IE team at Microsoft has released the 2nd beta Internet Explorer 8. Contrary to the first beta, which was aimed at developers, this one one is aimed at normal people like you and me. The list of new features and changes is decent, all focused around three themes (marketing alert): "We focused our work around three themes: everyday browsing (the things that real people do all the time), safety (the term most people use for what we've called 'trustworthy' in previous posts), and the platform (the focus of Beta 1, how developers around the world will build the next billion web pages and the next waves of great services)." Go get it.

The planet where people with a life couldn't give a single frak about Acidtwothreetestsbogusnonsensehocuspocus.

Does it render teh google maps? Facebook? Redtube.com?

Good, means it passed the only test that matters: the real world test.

What if Facebook, RedTube and Google Maps include special code for each browser ?

They don't because unlike some fanatics they are normal humans who regonize how important it is to have solid experience instead of perfect technical site. I think that's what IE team also did since IE 8 has some nice features that are more important to users than full standard support. Smart web developers can get thru missing parts of IE 8 browser and yet making working enviroment.
