I have received several prompts from various websites to install IE8.  I currently use IE7; being that this is a new release should I have any concerns?

    We upgraded our computers (50 workstations environment) as soon as it came out. IE 7 had a lot of holes that MS hopefully patched with the new release.

    Hello bholzworth,

    You should go ahead and update to IE8.  Some websites will run faster in IE8.  Some websites may not work in IE8, so you have use the user agent to simulate IE7 or IE6.

    Hope this helps!
