IE8 beta released, still sucks

Microsoft Corp. gave early testers their first glimpse of its next-generation web browser Wednesday and said Internet Explorer 8 will adhere to the same standards as competitors’ programs.Microsoft’s browsers, including the current Internet Explorer 7, gained notoriety among web developers for handling web code differently than Mozilla Corp.’s Firefox, Apple Inc.’s Safari, the now-defunct Netscape Navigator and others.

For the most part, major non-Microsoft browsers and outside developers who built web pages worked with agreed-upon technical standards, while Microsoft was accused of adding proprietary code to those standards. The result: web pages that looked good in Internet Explorer but broke on other browsers, or vice versa. (link)
