The news articles said it was to go non-beta on the 18th (or maybe
yesterday). You saw it show up in Windows Updates page? I see a link
IE's home page, but that's always said that even through all the release
candidates for the beta version. The "Get It Now" link takes me to IE7
From its home page for Internet Explorer, the download link for IE8 goes
through atdmt.com, a known advertising revenue service provider. That
gets blocked by many ad-blockers, including mine. Microsoft uses them
to track from where the downloads are requested and other statistical
data. After disabling the ad blocking, I get "IE cannot display page"
which could be a server problem (perhaps with atdmt.com). Alas, the
redirect through atdmt.com doesn't provide the destination page as
parameters in the URL (so I could see where atdmt.com would go to).
I also didn't find it listed at www.microsoft.com/downloads
. So is it
really released? Until they add it to their Windows Update site, I
won't bother to download it - and only after imaging my OS partition for
a true restore (and will probably still use Returnil to trial it for
awhile to determine compatability).
