Walt Mossberg published a review of the new Internet Explorer 8. Unlike us he already has the final version of IE8. Overall Mr. Mossberg likes the new Internet Explorer but finds it slower in rendering webpages in his tests compared to Firefox, Safari 4 and Chrome.

Quote from the IE8 review:"Internet Explorer 8 is a well-done advance on an important product used by most people to surf the Web. If it were faster, I would say it was the best browser currently available for Windows. But even so, it will be an improvement for current Internet Explorer users, and might even tempt some folks to switch."
Read the full review on D All Things Digital. The final release of IE8 should show up any time now as the embargo for reviews has been obviously lifted.

IE8 is definitely much better than IE7 and also faster as our initial review of the IE8 RC1 showed. Update: IE8 Download started
