Internet Explorer 8 will go a long way toward solidifying various Web standards, but it lacks significant improvements in security. In this complimentary guide, explore key insights on improving desktop management, identifying and avoiding hidden costs, and minimizing mobile security risks.

As you read this article, there are two things to keep in mind: First, because this is an early beta release, anything that I've talked about could potentially change by the time Microsoft finally releases the product. As a way of easing the burden caused by this incompatibility, Microsoft has designed Internet Explorer 8 so that it emulates Internet Explorer 7 if necessary. The security features I have mentioned are nice to have, but I would hardly call them life-changing.
Of the nine security bulletins released for August Patch Tuesday, Windows Server operating systems are only affected by six. Right now IE8 is still in its first beta release, but it is far enough along that we can at least get an idea of what the finished product may look like.
Second, I am limiting my discussion primarily to talking about the features that have to do with security.


Internet Explorer 7 was designed primarily to address the security shortcomings of the previous IE version. It's good from the standpoint that more consistent support of the various standards should enable Web developers to create sites that are more secure because they use standardized code. As you can see in Figure B, the Emulate IE7 feature is prominently displayed on the Tools menu. From what I can tell, the Safety Filter seems to have replaced the Phishing Filter found in Internet Explorer 7. The basic idea behind this feature is that the address bar displays the domain portion of the URL in black, while the remainder of the URL is grayed out.
Sadly, these are the only new security features that Microsoft even mentions on the IE8 beta site.
Posey, MCSE, has received Microsoft's Most Valuable Professional Award four times for his work with Windows Server, IIS and Exchange Server. If you reside outside of the United States, you consent to having your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States. In contrast, though, Internet Explorer 8 is a lot less about security and more about standards. On the other hand, Internet Explorer has a long history of not enforcing a lot of the Web standards. I can't help but wonder if the emulation will expose Internet Explorer 8 to many of the same security threats that made Internet Explorer 7 vulnerable.


The Safety Filter is designed to detect Phishing sites, but it also detects websites that are known to be malicious and analyzes the full URL string looking for malicious code. This feature probably doesn't sound like a big deal, but some websites are designed to conceal their identity by including text in the URL string, which tricks users into thinking they are on a different site. It is possible that there are other security features that work behind the scenes and have not yet been disclosed.
He has served as CIO for a nationwide chain of hospitals and healthcare facilities, and was once a network administrator for Fort Knox. In fact, Microsoft cited better support of Web standards as one of its major goals in creating IE8. Therefore, many sites that are in use today won't fully comply with some of the Web standards that will be enforced in Internet Explorer 8 and that means a lot of websites won't function correctly. You can see how the domain highlighting feature works if you look at the address bar in Figure C. Although Microsoft mentions better security as one of its goals in creating IE8, that goal seems to be secondary.
