Here is the marketing bit…..concentrate ;):
· Faster for accomplishing tasks, from mapping a location to checking the status of an auction. In side-by-side measures of speed, IE8 was as fast or faster than Firefox in opening top websites more than 50% of the time. The rest of the time you need an ultra-slow motion video camera to catch the difference between IE8, Firefox and Google Chrome.
· Easier to find information, to navigate, to search, to work with tabs. Accelerators and Web Slices blur the lines between the online services that make each person’s browsing unique and the browser itself, making the IE8 experience richer.
· Safer and more reliable with advanced privacy protection that no other browser can match.
