Default Next Internet Explorer To Be IE8

From our front-page news:
It's official: The next version of Internet Explorer will be called Internet Explorer 8. To all out there who knew this years ago, pat yourselves on the back. Though, since the browser has followed the same naming scheme for quite a while, it's best to not gloat too much. At least they are not calling it Internet Live Explorer Ultimate, I suppose.

New features have not been mentioned for obvious reasons, but should include faster browsing, better protection, better functionality and everything else we are usually promised and never delivered.

The confirmation came during his speech at the "Mix and Mash" conference taking place this week in Redmond, Wash. In a posting on the IE blog, Microsoft general manager Dean Hachamovitch jokes about some of the names Microsoft ruled out, such as "IE 7+1" and "IEVIII."

Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
