Internet Explorer 8 launching Q3
We are encouraging site administrators to get their sites ready now for broad adoption of Internet Explorer 8, as there will be a beta release in the third quarter of this year targeted for all consumers,” MacKechnie wrote.
In March IE general manager Dean Hachamovitch pegged a “summer” release for Beta 2. Third quarter puts the browser between the start of July and end of September. We’ll have to see if the IE 8 beta follows in the well-worn footsteps of other new software from Microsoft and begins to slip backwards, this time into Autumn.
