Some interesting IE8 feedback from the troops.

I was scanning the internal mailing list the other day and I came across this little quotable e-mail from David Burela:

Ie8Feedback

I thought it was interesting because a lot of our guys, whilst they support Internet Explorer actually do a lot of their development with Firefox to spot any issues early and because Firebug is so damned cool.

While this quote is a week old and the IE8 honeymoon may be over it is an indication that this browser release from Microsoft may actually halt adoption of Firefox and Google Chrome (FWIW, I installed Chrome, it had some nice features but I’m back on IE8B2).

    Hey Mitch,

    Chrome has some nice features yes, but its getting a little beyond that now. “Nice features” are largely missed by most users. Chrome, especially for a beta release, is exponentially faster that IE6, 7, 8 and Firefox in their production quality release packages. For either Microsoft or the Firefox camp to ignore this simple fact is at their peril and is a huge wake up call. Its like showing us that we dont have to accept what “they” say is a fast browser, now that we have seen how much faster it can actually be, and speed is just one point. I love Chrome for this fact alone. Dont believe the hype..
