One more little caveat that I wanted to bring up due to some feedback I just received.  There is no installer available to put IE8 RC1 on the Windows 7 Beta.  For now, Windows 7 beta testers are stuck with an older post-beta 2 version of IE8.  Sorry folks…


Now get out there and start testing RC1!!!
