Although we're not quite at the public beta stage, it's been noted that Microsoft have contacted a few members of the public to ask if they want to sign up for beta-testing the first beta of Internet Explorer 8. This does mean we're going to get Internet Explorer 8 some time during 2008, possibly close to the release of Firefox 3, which is probably due this side of summer.
There are few details of the forthcoming Internet Explorer 8, apart from details about the browser being more standards compliant. What we do know is that we'll find out more information at the MIX08 conference, on March the 5th. Microsoft will give the first presentation of the new browser.
If you want to keep abreast of the possible first public beta, and other details of Internet Explorer 8, follow the Internet Explorer blog.
