    FYI, the recently leaked 7022 build comes with RC 1.

    I didn't try installing IE8 RC1, rather i installed 7022 instead

    Trust me, RC1 is a huge step up from the IE8 beta in 7000!! So much quicker now!!
    The tabs open in a jiffy, and i feel its much more responsive all around!

    As far as I am aware it is not available for 7 yet but does run ok on Vista without problems, I could be wrong on this but I think I get this information when I downloaded it

    MS say's it is not compatible for W7. I was just wondering if any brave souls tried it, and what the results were.

    Works fine on Windows 7. Yes, even I was pleasantly surprised by RC1's performance.

    IE8 is Windows component...and is in BETA...So I don't think so, IE8 RC can be installed on Windows 7 BETA.

    Its same concept...Windows BETA can't be upgraded to Windows RTM release.
