We’ve written a few posts here on IE8 centered around what you need to know as an IT Pro and/or dev. In fact I just wrote one and posted it a few hours ago. I have been using IE8 final now for a couple of days (call it a perk of working here) as well as participating in the beta and RC trials and thought I’d share some of the new features I’m using…

Canada.com is one of the sites I visit for Canadian news and they also have built a Web Slice that has some really cool interactive features.
The feature I use the most so far has to be the Accelerators. I love the fact that I don’t have to copy and paste any more, just select the text and search, define, email, blog, map or…the list goes on.
You can find more Accelerators here http://www.ieaddons.com/en/accelerators as well as guidance on how to write your own here http://blogs.msdn.com/miah/archive/2008/10/04/ie8-rocks-creating-custom-accelerators.aspx
