IE8 Unleased.....

It is now offical that Internet Explorer v8 is "live" in the wild and the first issue I noticed is that if you are a user of the x64 architecture then you cannot download IE8 from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie8 you have to go to the x64 version which can be found on the link here
Anyway once you have the installation file on your desktop you will need to run it in the usual fashion, if you want to review the install process then please visit the Internet Explorer 8 x64 gallery which can be found here
I would like to focus on the new features in IE8 which include this rather handy "Development Tool" which enables you to view the source code in a whole new light....

Then if you are into a little "Private" browsing then you have a feature called "InPrivate Browsing" I am sure that the naming could have been better for this, especially as other web browsers have nicer names like ScreenFilter and Chaos Mode....anyway this is what IE8 looks likes when it is running...

Ahhhhhh...it gets worse as you also get a technology called "InPrivate Filtering" (I am quite worried as to where this is going) which will actively filter your web-traffic for "share enabled" items and you have one option here which is block.....wait for IE9 for more features in the area...

If you are worried about your details being "stolen" from you (usually caused by visiting sites you know you should not) then you have another line of defense with IE8 called SmartScreen filter and if you go to a website that is "bad" then you will get an error like this:

Now...for all the curious people who wonder what the "more information" button is for....let me enlighten you when you click on this you get more options....
