Welcome to CoDe Focus for Internet Explorer 8!
In this issue, you’ll find information on all things related to Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2. From Web Slices to Developer Tools, from our improvements in performance to the great new features for building Web 2.0 applications, there’s something here for everyone.
Since I joined the Internet Explorer team back in 1995, I’ve helped ship a lot of Internet Explorer releases, and Internet Explorer 8 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting, with a full set of new capabilities and improvements for users and developers.
Finally, we wanted to make the Web more efficient and approachable for users, and encourage users to reach beyond just a single Web page with Accelerators, Web Slices and new Search features. Not only does this let users navigate the resources of the Web more effectively, but it also provides new opportunities for Web services to integrate into the browsing experience, rather than just being a destination.
With this issue of CoDe Focus, several of my colleagues have written some great articles on these areas of Internet Explorer to help you start developing for Internet Explorer 8. Happy browsing!
