    My guilty pleasure

    I have to admit I really like IE8. I tried out the beta and it seems really snappy, looks like MS have really worked on the speed. Also it has the same process-per-tab thing going on as Chrome - it works really well, I had Adobe Reader crash and it only took out the tab.

    I love accelerators too. Being able to map a location just by highlighting it is great!

    It passes Acid2 and scores around 30 on Acid3 which I think shows great progress even if it's no Webkit yet.

    I have been using ie8 for a few weeks now and i really like it as well. I like the coloured tabs and the fact that you can put it into compatability mode for ie7.

    I just use a modified hosts file to do ad blocking universally. There's a readymade one you can download but I can't remember where to find it right now, sorry.
