Remember the ridiculous implementation of the
<button> element in IE6 and IE7? Well, I finally had my first hands-on experience with Internet Explorer 8 (beta 1 for developers), so I was able to check if they fixed it. I tried the new IE on a test page I made for the ieFixButtons jQuery plugin. And you know what? It seems the development team really got it right at last! In IE8 buttons do work as nature intended.
But, I also discovered that my website, the one you’re looking at right now, is slightly broken in the new IE. Specifically, the top navigation menu items are not displayed correctly. So far, I haven’t figured out how to fix it, and I wonder if it’s my fault, or if the beta version of IE8 is, well, too beta, and I should wait for the final version to come out. I will lazily assume the latter for the moment.
