Microsoft is slowly but surely losing the browser battle, although it still holds a huge chunk of the browser market with its Internet Explorer. Microsoft won’t be resting on its laurels though, having just released Internet Explorer 8 Beta that will comes with a suite of improvements such as a virsual refresh, integration with the flagging Facebook and eBay, map viewing on Microsoft’s Live service as well as the ability to remember its current set of displayed pages, enabling you to return straight to them should the browser be closed accidentally or crash. I guess I could make do with that feature now, since I tend to have 12 to 15 tabs open simultaneously. A crash would mean hunting those links down again, which could be very time consuming. As with any other beta, IE8 isn’t exactly the most stable horse in the country at the moment.
