Microsoft has released the latest version of Internet Explorer – IE8 – as a free download for Windows Vista and Windows XP. IE8 is a manual download now, but will be pushed out to all Windows users running Windows Updater later this spring.
The company has promised that IE8 improves speed, stability, security, standards and search. Among the enhancements are: a new bookmark manager, the ability to isolate and print a specific part of any page, right-clicking on addresses to go straight to a map without leaving your page, and putting keywords in the address bar to recall sites visited related to that word.
