General Manager Dean Hachamovitch and IE Test Manager Jason Upton sit down with me to discuss the significance of today's
IE 8 RC1 release
. What did the IE team learn from the Beta 2 release? What changes did they make in response to customer feedback? Will the IE team still take and act upon fedback now that RC1 is here? With so many browsers on the market today how does
IE remain competitive and maintain marketshare? No conversation on IE can be complete, of course, without talking about the web platform and standards so we go there....
Of course, you can expect this discussion to continue at
(and you'll be a key participant in the conversation with Dean and team in Vegas).See the IE Blog for more detailed info on what's in IE8 RC1
Tune in. This is a great conversation with two key leaders behind and in front of IE (Dean is the all up team leader (as you know by now given how many times you've seen him on C9 and at various conferences) and Jason is responsible for overall product quality
(he owns the stuff you seldom see or hear about - software testing)).
