00As you can tell I am pretty excited about IE8, I believe it will fundamentally improve’s everyone’s browsing experience, people like you and me, but also my dad. Honest story my dad knows how to search the web using live search, which in of itself is impressive, but when he finds let’s say an address to a restaurant, he pulls out a map to find directions. I know what your saying, we all pull out maps, but are they made out paper? My dad’s is. So how can a browser help, by bringing everyday online services to people like my dad, in a new function called accelerators. Accelerators are just one of the many improvements that extend your browsing experience beyond the page while staying connected with the things you care about most.
There is a fantastic list of new features, from search, find on page highlighting, tab improvements (work they way they are supposed to now)..etc, that I could fill my desktop with all the improvements, not to mention Webslices! So instead of me of doing that, while don’t I show you, take a look at the screencast where I showcase all the features that make IE 8 faster and easier to use:
