    MS have now released the second beta of Internet Explorer 8. Get your copy here:
    Windows Internet Explorer 8: Home page

    I've just installed it and there are few changes from the other version. No button to run in IE7 mode and more options to choose from, seems ok so far..

    Using it right now. I couldn't see much difference from the previous Beta, to be honest, but I am not a very good "bug hunter". It did seem to load more quickly after a reboot though (I don't use prefetch)

    I noticed the IE7 button has been replaced with a 'compatibility button'. If the web site doesn't load up as it should, click that and the world makes sense again..
