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.
I'll have to agree with you. I am having a problem with paddings on my input form with custom background. Strange?

It is strange but noone has documented this padding error, even in the discussion area on MSDN site. I will wait few hours then post it.

The padding problem on lists is yet another annoying bug by IE8. Gahhh, it's just a beta.

I read somewhere that the IE team is going to realse a few versions of the beta.

The IE team has come on leaps over the last few years but I really thing that this was rushed for the MIX event.

You had to read it to realize that? :P It's the first beta, of course there will be more.

Giving it a go right now. I doubt it will curb my love for Firefox and Opera, but you've got to stay on top of new things .

I heard from another site a few weeks back that IE 8.0 couldnt actually display the microsoft website fully but ill assume they fixed that.

I'll still stick to Firefox 3.0
