Installing Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2

I did not install the previous beta but now I’m giving Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 a try on my Vista PC abandoning Internet Explorer 7 (at least for now and maybe permanently).


Notice that you cannot keep your previous version but you can uninstall the beta and your previous version will be restored. Or you can install it on a virtual machine or a spare PC.

Here is what it look like. But you should really look at all the new features to see what’s in this new version.


Notice that you should for now use the compatibility view button when visiting as the menus for some reason does not work. This makes IE8 work like IE7.

Compatibility View

Right now it shows Webpage Script Error: Invalid argument.
Line: 42
Char: 1
Code: 0

It seems to be a problem on this row in menu.js:
obj.clip="rect(0 auto 0 0)" //hide menu via clipping

Get Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2, the latest version of Microsoft's free web browser. If you dare to give it a try. But it seems to be working pretty good so far for me.
