Interesting IE8 Features...

Interesting IE8 Features...

In today's MIX08 keynote, Microsoft showed off IE8 and there are some interesting feautres:

  • AJAX related support for non-fullscreen postbacks.  So that the back-forward button does what it should.
  • The debugging story is interesting but seems to be FireBug# to me.
  • Webslices is interesting...but again, if FF3 doesn't support it, who cares?

The beta will be available after noon PST on 3/5/2008:
