This is unbelievable! I downloaded the "final" IE8 last night and it's like an alpha preview! Version 8.0.6001.18702 Vista Home Premium, SP1, 32bit, never had an IE8 beta installed as I had this funny feeling that I should wait - now I'm afraid I'll need to re-format to get completely rid of this sloppy code. Windows Explorer now opens each window in new tab although explicitly told not to, documented. Trying to move data (preparing to format if needed) I can't right click/copy within Windows Explorer or it hang and crashes. Cannot open links from within Hotmail Right clicking a link doesn't open a new tab or new window - perpetual green tab "loading" - documented "Down Arrow" to go back to recent pages (near address bar) doesn't function This is all that I've found as I installed last night, used it for about 5 minutes as it was late, and realized within 10 minutes this morning that I've made a terrible mistake with this install. Had to use Firefox all day as I'm afraid that I will now need to re-format to get rid of it and I had to wait until my wife was through with the PC for the day. I'm still somewhat shocked that this was released as final code - with the current browser competition, this is a huge set back for MS. I'm not interested in disabling add-ons like some have suggested - if this needs to be done the browser should disable them during install. Back to IE7 with it's bugs and probably off to Firefox land for the next 6 months until this all gets fixed. I did make it back to IE7, all problems appear to be fixed. Find it mildly amusing that the IE8 uninstall page, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700 , was updated on the 20th "Article ID: 957700 - Last Review: March 20, 2009 - Revision: 6.0" It's obvious that MS knows there's a huge issue with the release code!
