IE8 Beta1

Just installed IE8 beta 1, WordPress doesnt show up! Good that MS has provided a button “Emulate IE7” to emulate IE7 in IE8. WordPress is back n my IE

Update: Uninstalled IE8 due to problem with webpages. Hope this ACID test wont make IE not render the normal webpages! Awaiting for official word!
