Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 has nifty features

Microsoft's IE8 now includes better tab management, services such as Web Slices and Accelerators, and the new 'porn mode.'

  • When you open a new tab, instead of getting a blank screen, the page opens with a variety of useful links.

  • IE8's Address Bar sorts its results by category (such as History and Favorites) and searches through RSS feeds.

  • With Tab Groups, all of your related pages are automatically grouped next to one another and color-coded.

  • When you launch an InPrivate Browsing session, all traces of your browsing session vanish when you close it.

  • In IE8's Address Bar, only the domain is black -- the rest of the URL is gray.

  • Accelerators are mini-mashups that deliver information from another Web site or service to your current page.
