MSIE 8 safe to use or wait until final
MSIE 8 has been under development for awhile now. I haven't tried it yet
and wondered if it was safe to use (ie free from frequent crahses) or if I
should wait until the final version is out. Any severely negative
experiences with MSIE 8 so far?

Re: MSIE 8 safe to use or wait until final
Unless you are a beta tester, you should always wait for the finished
product before installing /any/ software. And even then, the wise person
waits a few more weeks or months until the inevitable initial bugs get
shaken out.

Would you drive an unfinished vehicle to work?
