More on Hulu in Canada

I still have not found a good proxy server in the US that will "hide" my IP address for use with Hulu. Anyone else looking, let me know if you find something. Otherwise this is still working wonderfully:

Internet Explorer 8 beta 1 released ... now what?

Likely because it is still in Beta, I can't say I am too impressed with the first release of Internet Explorer 8. The first thing I tried with it was Hotmail. Really, you would almost have to assume that would work. It didn't. I had to change back to IE7 mode, then check my email. Oh well. Since I rarely use IE anyhow anymore - not a big deal I guess. But it was refreshing to see the giant list of updates mostly the standards support included. I'll keep my eye out for Beta 2.

Internet Explorer 8 beta 1 - coming soon!

According to a post over at Channel 10 by Larry Larsen the wait for Internet Explorer 8 (beta 1) is nearly over.

"Surprise! IE8 beta is going to be available for download starting today at 12:00 PST. "

There have been download links up on the Microsoft site for some time today however they are all dead.

While I have been a big fan of Firefox and lately a bigger fan of Opera 9.5 - I am anxious to check out the latest browser from Microsoft. Some of the new features include Activities, Webslices, JavaScript debugging and tools, DOM storage, AJAX enhancemnets, cross-Domain AJAX, and more.

* Update * IE 8 download links are working as of 2:52 PM EST
