Microsoft's New Browser Is Better, but Still Not Best
source: Washington Post

For all its issues, IE 8 utterly shuts down the less capable, less secure IE 6. And yet more than a fifth of Web users limp along in that horribly obsolete browser.

If they ignore IE 8 as they've ignored IE 7 -- while people without hang-ups about changing browsers continue to switch to Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Opera, most of which have seen more frequent updates than IE -- Microsoft will start running out of potential customers. If it can't step up its game, the company that once bragged about integrating its Web browser with its operating system may eventually want to think about leaving the browser business to other companies.
