IE8 is finally here

You can add the meta which displays IE8 in IE7 mode, I have however in the beta noticed a few discrepancies in how IE7 and IE8 run JavaScript, mainly Ajax. This isn't fixed by the meta though, and I am pretty sure it is a fix TBH, but regardless it is a pain in the ass.

Ideally you want 2 computers, one running XP with IE7 and Tredsofts IE6 software on it, and 1 running IE8 IMO and you can then run all 3.

Yeah the problem I think is that Vista wont allow IE6 to work on it due to the upgraded OS.
I know the guy at Tredsoft tried but it's just not possible.
Now IE8's out he may do a work around for IE7 and IE8 but I don't know TBH.
