Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 for XP takes the Web experience beyond the page and introduces a new way to seamlessly experience the power of the Web whether you are a Web developer writing to standards, or an end user discovering a new online service. This beta release is available to everyone, but is primarily for Web developers and designers to test the new tools, layout engine, and programming enhancements.
When not developing your web site, you can click the Emulate IE7 button in the command bar to browse the web like you did in IE7.
Visit the Internet Explorer website to learn more about how Internet Explorer 8 puts the Web at Your Service.
