Testers and users welcomed the new release candidate of Microsoft's next-generation Internet Explorer browser that was introduced on Monday.
The new iteration of the application includes several security improvements, including a noteworthy attempt to address the emerging problem of clickjacking attacks.
In the Presentation, Microsoft appears to have not only tried to address the browser-based issues, but also helped Web site owners to make IE8 less vulnerable to the attacks.
The new Internet Explorer also has automatic crash recovery, domain highlighting for spotting phishers, and a safety filter.
On a report from Appleinsider, IE8 shows better performance than any of the old IE's of Microsoft. The experiments proved that IE8 lags well than that of Safari or Chrome.
We have made IE 8 the best browser for the way people really do use the web, said Microsoft's Amy Barzdukas.
Testers and users welcomed IE8 because of its customize features. Microsoft made a feature known as an Accelerator (essentially, the ability to perform a number of common browser-based tasks like searching or blogging from wherever a user is on the Web) part of IE8's right-click menu and part of the default view of a new tab where a Web site has yet to be opened.
