What's new in Internet Explorer 8 RC1?

Microsoft is readying the final release of its browser Internet Explorer 8. Here are images of IE release candidate 1 along with descriptions of the features

IE8 RC1: Security


IE8 RC1 also offers improved protection from sites flagged as phishing or malware threats. In addition to warning you when you encounter such a site, IE8 RC1 makes it more difficult to disregard the dialog box and click through. Finally, IE8 has added protection against clickjacking -- a kind of attack that became common toward the end of 2008.
These are all strong steps in Internet Explorer's development and will be good features for current users of IE. Still, considering the comparable protection available for other browsers, I don't know that they'll hold a high enough value to bring any outsiders in.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
