    Since Beta 2, you’ll note some of the changes inRC1 include the following:
    • ClickJacking protection. The SmartScreen Filter now includes the ability to help detect and prevent “ClickJacking” which is a malicious technique of tricking web users into revealing confidential information or taking control of their computer.
    • InPrivate™. Helps to protect user’s data and privacy from being retained “locally” on a PC. InPrivate Browsing and InPrivate Filtering can now be used independently.
    • Performance improvements. Reduces the time that users must wait when starting the browser, opening a “new tab”, or loading a page.
    User interface and experience updates. There have been several user interface changes to help ensure a better user experience.

    I'm really liking IE8 thus far. :thumb: Much faster and smoother than IE7.

    Quick question: whenever I type a url address, it is NOT being stored in the address bar. When I click on the 'drop-down' arrow...my typed sites addresses do not show up.

    Is this a settings issue and does anyone know how to correct this?

    Thanks.

    I figured it out. Auto Complete was not enabled/checked. FYI for anyone else experiencing the same issue.
