Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2: now available

Posted by 28 August, 2008 (1) Comment

Microsoft has officially released beta 2 of Internet Explorer 8 and is available in the following languages,

  • English
  • German
  • Japanese
  • Simplified Chinese

Following Operating Systems are supported:

  • Windows XP
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows Vista x64
  • Windows Server 2003
  • Windows Server 2003 x64

One of the most talked about new features is InPrivate Browsing, which enables you to browse the web without saving your history with Internet Explorer 8’s InPrivate Browsing. Now you can shop for that special gift with confidence knowing your family won’t accidentally find out or use a shared computer without leaving a trace.

Will you be using InPrivate Browsing mode? I think I will pass. I don’t need to use the said mode on any browser on my Home PC or on my laptop but yes on a Public Computer say in an Internet Cafe the said mode will be handy. Other than that, the way it is being marketed sounds funny.
