Could IE 8 Be Great?

I rarely use Internet Explorer. Sometimes (almost never), a site doesn't work under Firefox, so I fire up IE, view the page and shut 'er right back down.

Microsoft is trying to entice people like me back into the fold with IE 8, now in its second beta. The new browser steals one cool feature of Firefox: When your browser dies, it will restore your old session, including all the tabs.

For admins, there are new tools to make it easier to deploy, especially if you're rolling out Vista images.

Are there compelling reasons to use IE over Firefox? If so, what are they? Answers readily accepted at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
