After several time Internet Explorer 8 with beta version, now in Year 2009 Internet Explorer start release full version for public. Microsoft claim that Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) will give faster time to browse webpages and also have more powerful security then the IE version before. There are not many differences at IE 8 cosmetic. This version or Internet Explorer give many attention for the security think. For better security reason, Microsoft did some research with NSS Lab, and the result, IE8 can protect twice until four time attach from outside if compare with other browser at this time.
Yes, the security is one of the most important think when we are connected to internet. Some browser also have ability to installed additional security plugin, but most user does not understand about the security threat, they rather using the browser which is already secure by default without install additional security plugin. This is what Internet Explorer 8 done and prepare for every enduser. One feature that added and interesting is InPrivate, this is the feature which is set the browser for not save the track of our browsing such as history, cookies and temporary files. This is can prevent some unwanted program tracking our important browsing data.
The second important think when choosing the internet browser is the faster browsing time. I've remember when using Internet Explorer 5 and IE6, compare with the latest browser at that time such as Opera and Firefox, the IE5 and IE6 is little bit slow then others. But at this version, IE8 claim that this is the fastest browser at this time in the market.
One issue that is happen at IE8 is the incompatibility for opening the webpage. Some pages give wrong display at IE8, while the display is good at IE7 and older versions. For this problem, Microsoft release the new feature named Compatibility View. This feature will automatically convert the webpages which is built for IE7 and can be view correctly at IE8. This Internet Explorer 8 final version can be download for free at http://www.microsoft.com/ie8 with 25 different languages.
