Internet Explorer 8 available today


You’ll be able to download Microsoft’s newest web browser, Internet Explorer 8, at 12PM Eastern time today (link here). Microsoft promises that IE8 “is one of the fastest browsers on the market today” and features new goodies like Web Slices, Instant search, and Accelerators – basically right-clicking on highlighted text to bring up a list of routine tasks like mapping, e-mailing, definitions, translation, and more.

The release candidate dropped in January so here’s hoping this new version will amaze us all.

The browser has been in beta for over a year now, so it’ll be interesting to see how the final product performs. What would it take for IE8 to lure you away from your current browser?

We’ll have a full look at the new browser this week.
