IE8 being pushed, but users can choose to opt in


by David Allen

Microsoft will be nicely asking users of Internet Explorer to upgrade to the latest version of the browser IE8.

However, users will not be forced to switch, and if they do not want then that will be fine - oh, how things have changed over at Microsoft.

The latest browser will be treated as an opt in choice for the consumer.

This means that it will not be automatically installed on computers.

User will get a welcome message which will ask if they want to install IE8 later, now or never.

This is a good move on behalf of the company, making it appear to be more careful, even human, and that cannot be a bad thing - or is it just clever marketing!
