Microsoft today released the second beta build of the next version of it’s Internet Explorer web browser, Internet Explorer 8.

With 75% of the browser market share, Microsoft is hoping to keep it’s lead with IE 8 which will include new privacy and security features, a “smart” address bar that remembers and redirects users to sites they’ve visited in the past (like Firefox 3) and a new mode called “InPrivate Browsing” which will prevent history, temporary files and cookies from being saved (like Safari 3).

Windows users eager to check it out can grab a copy here. Remember: it’s beta software so don’t expect things to be polished to normal Microsoft standards. 😉
