Download of the day: Internet Explorer 8 Beta ( MSIE 8 )

Internet Explorer 8 (MSIE 8) has been in development since August 2007. In March 2008, a public beta (Beta 1) was released to the general public. Microsoft has revealed a list of the new features in IE8, including two interesting new additions called Activities and WebSlices:

Activities are contextual services to quickly access a service from any webpage. Users typically copy and paste from one webpage to another. Internet Explorer 8 Activities make this common pattern easier to do.

WebSlices is a new feature for websites to connect to their users by subscribing to content directly within a webpage. WebSlices behave just like feeds where clients can subscribe to get updates and notify the user of changes.

Download Apple Safari 3 browser for Windows XP and Vista

Apple has launched a version of its web browser Safari for Windows, competing head to head with Microsoft’s Explorer and Mozilla’s Firefox.

According to Apple’s website:

The fastest web browser on any platform, Safari loads pages up to 2 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2. And it executes JavaScript up to 2.8 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2. What does all that mean for you? Less time loading pages and more time enjoying them.
A test version of Safari 3 for Windows XP, Vista and Apple Macs running OSX, is available for download from the Apple website. Apple is hoping to replicate the success of iTunes, which has proved enormously popular on both Macs and Windows machines.

“We think Windows users are going to be really impressed when they see how fast and intuitive web browsing can be with Safari,” said Mr Jobs.
