Default IE8 Beta2

HOLY SHIT!

IE8 is SOOO much better than FF3, it's quite a bit faster, not just a little bit, A LOT. This is a keeper, FF is uninstalled on my PC.

I have been an IE hater and FF love my whole life. But if it is as good as you say it is, then I don't mind going back to IE =]

Yep, pretty much, certainly seems to perform better that IE7. I wouldn't go as far as to say it is better than Firefox 3 but.
