Microsoft released Internet Explorer 8.0 last week as an upgrade to Internet Explorer 7.0. IE8 is available for Windows XP SP2/SP3, Windows Server 2003 SP2, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. While this new version of IE8 is a big improvement over IE7, 2K Networking does not recommend any of our clients to update to this new version until compatibility testing has been completed against your enterprise software and web applications.
Because IE8 builds on the foundation of changes that were made with IE7, there is a very good chance that any web applications that did not work properly in IE7, will continue to malfunction in IE8. This is one of the biggest reasons we do not recommend upgrading at this time.
Microsoft will begin releasing IE8 to all users via windows automatic update the week of April 13, 2009. 2K Networking has the ability to block the automatic download and installation of IE8. Please make sure you talk with your primary contact regarding blocking IE8 at your organization.
