Get Set for IE 8

Usually, when Microsoft tells customers to get ready for a new product, I yawn. But in the case of IE 8, it has a point -- at least for IE shops.

Earlier this week, we reported that IE 8 had the fewest bugs of any mainstream browser -- and it's still in beta. If those security testing results are correct, IE 8 will be far safer than earlier Microsoft revs.

Microsoft expects a final product in the first quarter or 2009, and suggests that IT get ready for a fast, smooth rollout. This time around, Microsoft's advice makes a lot of sense.
