Greetings from the Internet Explorer Team! We are nearing the launch of Windows Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 and we will be making it available for the general public to download and test.

IE8 Beta 1 is focused on the developer community, with the goal of gaining valuable feedback to improve Internet Explorer 8 during the development process. We have identified you as a qualified beta tester and we would like to offer an opportunity to join our limited technical beta program for Windows Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1.

Participation in the Technical Beta will enable you to evaluate a common release of Windows Internet Explorer 8, the ability to submit feedback, post bug reports, download software answer surveys on product quality as well as vote on top bugs filed by others from the technical beta program.

This is a very exclusive program, by invitation only. The only way to submit feedback is to enroll in the Windows Internet Explorer 8 Technical Beta program. As such, we would be happy to have your participation. To accept this invitation and to apply to become a member of this program, follow this link:

Windows Intenet Explorer 8 is the next version of the Internet Explorer browser developed by Microsoft after Internet Explorer 7. [1][2], with a beta version planned for release in the first half of 2008.[3] From the blog and based on the conferences of MIX 2007; RSS, CSS, Ajax, microformats, more options for user interface customization and improved web development tools are possibilities for inclusion into the forthcoming version of Internet Explorer, with security still being the top priority.[4] Microsoft is investing in support for more of the CSS 2.1 specification as well as changes to the DOM for interoperability with other web browsers.[4] HasLayout functionality will also be eliminated in IE8.[5]

IE8? Man... Korea is so screwed... IE7 and Vista totally broke everything here... I suppose that's what you get for coding specifically for IE6 and using tons of ActiveX though...

I can't wait to hear all the moaning when the beta is publicly available. No matter how good it is, you know it will all be nothing more than, "IE8 sucks. Firefox rulez. I love my Mac." :)

In any event, it's nice to see that IE is being actively developed.

***Warning***

IE8 Beta 2 will break Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail.  This release is very buggy.

From the release notes:
"Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 and Windows Live Mail are currently incompatible. If you install Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2, Windows Live Mail will crash when you create or reply to an e-mail message. No workaround is currently available."

Not sure, but maybe windows live mail is very buggy? I heard good things about IE8b2 stability on another news site.
