Well thats a lie. it fully supports CSS2.1.

So far not that bad but not that great either. Some issues with padding on list items I have spotted. Slow to install and is really buggy.

But you can emulate IE7 in standerds mode so it is not a total loss. IE are getting things right at last, but a lot of work to be done still.

I think I'll download it at work tomorrow to test it out.

There's been a lot of hype about how well this version will support CSS etc. I'll be interested to see if it lives up to it.

THANKYOU MS!

Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 has finally arrived! This was a surprise to all of us, even though it was well hinted at MIX08. IE8 was something that all developers have been waiting for waiting for.

Old news I posted this in the correct forum. After a good day fiddleing around and reading the browser specifications I now know what is added on a css level.

hasLayout has been removed. CSS2.1 supported as well as gernerated content.

Really big push for Microformats in a new feature called webslices. It basically lets you take part of a dynamic page and it is updated in browser bar. Good example is Ebay (current bid infomation) and Facebook (see freind status changes) with out leaving the page your on.

Another new feature called activites. Lots of use for this, good one that I seen over at the MSDN was to select a physical address and right click>activities>map. This will then let you see where it is located in a popup menu. Also you can publish straight to facebook or blog by selecting the content. As well as lots more features.

Developer tool bar that rivals firebug and web developer built in! Also you can emulate IE7 and IE6 quirkes mode.

IE8 atm is really buggy. Padding on list item is really bad. AIR crashes CSS support is not there yet at Firefox and Saffari level but its not that far off.

Overall good step my IE and when they iron out the bugs it looks like a really good browser.
