As many already know Internet Explorer (IE) 8.0 Beta 2 has been released to the public with good reception. We have done some basic testing of IE8 Beta 2 against the Commerce Server 2007 Starter Site and Starter Site R2 and have found no real issues so far. If you happen to be doing some of your own testing and run into issues or if you have a production site and want it to be IE 8 ready there are some steps you can take now.
First, be sure your site is code following W3C Standards. This is the best way to ensure compatibility not only with IE8 but other standards based broswers such as FireFox.
If you are seeing some compatibility issues with IE8 please refer to methods 4 and 5 in Microsoft article #956197 <http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;956197>.
