So far I really like IE 8.2 the only thing that I have had an issue with is www.monitter.com  – for some reason it gets an error on the page but if you click on the
compatibility view it works.  I don’t know what the error is but I did send it to the contact info.  I have not had issues with any other site.  I know the features were probably already available in firefox but I need IE for sharepoint and our memberhsip database.  There are still some compatibility issues with the .net.
 
But I really like testing new products – something about the challenge to see what I can find wrong.
 
Here is an overview from the site

Web Slices
How many times a day do you check for updates to e-mail, weather reports, sports scores, stock quotes, auction items email and so on? Until now this was a manual process, where you had to go to those sites to check for changes or new information.
Using Web Slices, you can keep up with frequently updated sites directly from the Favorites Bar. If a Web Slice is available on a page, a green Web Slices icon will appear in the upper-right hand corner of the browser. You can then easily subscribe and add them to the Favorites Bar or delete Web Slices that are no longer desired.
