Internet Explorer 8 RC1 has problems with Windows XP SP3
Using the Internet Explorer 8 RC1 could possibly cause problems with Windows XP SP3.
As Microsoft pointed out the Service Pack 3 could possibly cause problems when installed after the beta version of the browser. If the Release Candidate is installed afterwards neither the Service Pack nor the beta browser can be deleted as the corresponding entry misses in the software.
We have already tested the new browser in comparison with five other browsers.
