Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1

Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 for public download. You can get it here.
There seem to be some cool new features as shown on thier website.

Some of the features that I like are:

Domain Name Highlighting in the Address bar
The address bar highlights the name of the domain. For instance in the screenshot below you can easily see that you are on

There are some easy to use activities added to the right click context menu that allows you to share information via many media like facebook, etc. You can add on more activities from Microsofts website.

It is still early days for IE8, I would not suggest using it as your default browser as I have already noticed that it does not display some pages correctly. It is however a fun application to download and play with to see where IE is going in the future.
