The final version Internet Explorer 8 is now available! You can get it at the IE official website. Some of the new features in IE8:
Accelerators – Accelerators let you do some of the common task much easier. All you need is just a few mouse clicks to get map directions, translate words, email your friends, and more…
InPrivate Browsing – Commonly known as ‘Pr0n mode’, InPrivate browsing let you browse the web without saving your history. Now you can ‘shop online’ *ahem* with confidence knowing your family won’t accidentally find out or use a shared computer without leaving a trace.
Web Slices – Keep up with changes to the sites you care about most. Add a Web Slice and you won’t have to go back to the same website again and again for updates on news, stock quotes, online auctions, weather, or even sports scores. But this is web page dependent and not all not website have web slices yet.
Search suggestions – Search smarter with detailed suggestions from your favorite search providers and browsing history. See visual previews and get suggested content topics while you type in the enhanced Instant Search Box.
SmartScreen Filter – New security features help to protect you against deceptive and malicious websites which can compromise your data, privacy and identity.
