Microsoft Releases IE8 RC1

Earlier today, released their near feature-complete “RC1″ version of Explorer 8.

Available in 25 different languages for Windows Vista, XP, and Windows Server 2003/2008, it’s available for download right now.

According to Microsoft’s IE8 team, the browser is “effectively complete and done.” Most of the kinks visible in previous betas have been ironed out; their intent with this beta is to gather feedback about critical issues that seriously impede functionality.

Security issues such as the recent “Clickjacking” one have been solved. Sites can protect themselves “out of the box”.

They’ve targeted both technology enthusiasts and the hundreds of millions of “real users” who use Internet Explorer. From the feedback, they really feel that IE8 is ready to go. That however, is for the users to decide, and that includes you.

To begin testing of this RC release, a few prerequisites are required:

Firstly, if you are one of the many people testing any of the Windows 7 Betas, the version available for download will NOT work. It will be available as an update at a later date. If you don’t fall under this category, then the following prerequisites may be applicable to your install of Windows:

Download: Prerequisite Update #1 for Windows Vista
Download: Prerequisite Update #1 for Windows Vista X64
Download: Prerequisite Update #2 for Windows Vista (KB947562)
Download: Prerequisite Update #2 for Windows Vista (KB947562)

Once you’ve installed the relevant prerequisites, you can go right ahead and download the IE8 installer and begin testing.

For a full list and explanation of prerequisites for all platforms, visit the “Upgrading to IE8 RC1” blog post on the IEBlog.
