I've logged close to thirty hours in Internet Explorer (IE) 8 in the last few weeks doing browser testing. The more I use it, the more I think to myself "why would you use Internet Explorer?" There are other, better choices. Here's a quick roundup of what's out there to choose from. Internet Explorer: Each version gets better, I'll grant you that, but that's about all I'll grant you.

In an effort to start testing site in IE8 while maintaining the ability to test in IE7, I tried Tredosoft's Standalone Internet Explorer 7 and Multiple IE along with an upgrade to IE 8 Beta. Browsing is possible in IE6, IE7, and IE8, but IE7 and 8 share two problems.

IE PNG Fix - TwinHelix
This script adds near-native PNG support with alpha opacity to IE 5.5 and 6. Now you can have full translucency and no more ugly grey borders! It requires only one line in your CSS file, and no changes to your website HTML. <img alt="" /> tags and background images are both supported.

IE 6 actually had the best CSS support of any browser when it first came out... SEVEN YEARS AGO. - CSS-Tricks
Chris Coyier at CSS Tricks has written a very nice piece on IE6 CSS bugs. Anyone who's dealt with these will appreciate this list. Anyone who's fought with them and didn't know what they were will appreciate them more.
