Powerful new developer features
This section describes the new features that developers can exploit to make Internet Explorer 8 “light up”. These features include Accelerators, Web Slices, improvements in CSS support, accessibility (including W3C’s ARIA Support and UI Automation Support) innovations in AJAX functionality, improvements in DOM L2 Core support, and integrated Developer Tools.
Internet Explorer 8’s built-in Compatibility View button enables you to display websites that were designed for older browsers. Simply press the Compatibility View button if you see display problems on a website like misaligned text, images, or text boxes. It’s located next to the Refresh button on the Address Bar.
Accelerators let you complete your everyday browsing activities more quickly and even discover new services. Start mapping, translating, emailing, and more in just a few mouse clicks.
Keep Internet Explorer 8 from adding any sites you visit to Browsing History with InPrivate Browsing. Now you can shop for that special gift with confidence knowing your family won’t accidentally find out.
Search smarter with detailed suggestions from your favorite search providers and browsing history. See visual previews and get suggested content topics while you type in the enhanced Instant Search Box.
New security features help to protect you against deceptive and malicious websites which can compromise your data, privacy, and identity.
Keep up with changes to the sites you care about most. Add a Web Slice and you won’t have to go back to the same website again and again for updates on news, stock quotes, online auctions, weather, or even sports scores.
