Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 – New Features

We announced yesterday some additional features in Internet Explorer 8, which will be part of Beta 2. They are way cool and will help to do some additional significant steps towards a more trustworthy browsing experience. Yesterday we mainly talked about two features:

  • The XSS Filter, which helps to protect from cross-site scripting attacks
  • SmartScreen® Filter: This is the follow-up of the well-known phishing filter in Internet Explorer 7

If you want to get an overview of the comprehensive protection, you should read the overview on the IE blog
