Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : INTERNET EXPLORER 8...

INTERNET EXPLORER 8...

Have you downloaded it yet?

When I posted on Facebook I was downloading, I was warned...

"Don't do it!"

Well I have only had it for a day, but I have had no troubles so far...

I was told of compatibility issues with certain sites.  The only trouble I did had was on the Facebook site.  A quick fix..

Click on Tools, click "compatibility", and my problem was gone.   

I have heard it is roughly twice as fast?  Maybe.  It is certainly not slower...

Everything is cleaner.

No regrets here.  I say give it a shot...

UPGRADE TO INTERNET EXPLORER 8.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

Ken

Its better period. Not better than other browsers but for IE its much improved.

Hi Ken,

I tried it but it just wasn't compatable with our new mls system so I deleted it and and somehow deleted IE 7 also -- had to take my laptop in to have Windows reinstalled.  They couldn't believe that it was even possible to delete it. -- Think I will stay away from add and remove for awhile.

Ken - I'm still struggling with it. I keep bouncing from IE8 and firefox.

Hi Jenny, Robert, Shane, and Carol.  Thanks for reading.

I have had no problems that weren't an easy fix.

I am becoming a fan!

Thanks again,

Ken

Hi Ken... I have not upgraded to IE8, mostly because I only use IE7 for MLS stuff anymore.  I have migrated to Google Chrome and am amazed at how much faster it is.  I've also read that getting off of IE altogether seems to eliminate certain internet security "holes" that Microsoft has... I am not sure if that is true, but on the chance that it is, I can live with Google Chrome very nicely.

Ken, thanks for posting this....I have been wondering about the upgrade, too.  I think I will give it a try:-)

Still no complaints.
