Internet Explorer 8 Live & Yahoo Promotes Firefox

Yesterday, Sam pinged me with a screenshot of Yahoo's explicit endorsement of Firefox 3.

Yahoo! Endorses Firefox3

The link takes you to http://downloads.yahoo.com/firefox/ which only seems to work on IE at this time (if you use FF to access that page, it will ask you to download the Yahoo toolbar instead).

Ironically, the same day that users spotted this Firefox 3 endorsement, Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 was released. On the IEBlog, users can see the new features available to them in the newest version of Internet Explorer. On a similar note, Danny Sullivan reviewed IE8 with how it relates to search functionality.

Forum discussion continues at DigitalPoint Forums, DigitalPoint Forums (#2), and Sphinn.

I personally prefer Flock over Firefox, IE and Opera. However, I haven't tried Firefox 3 yet. What new features have they added? I believe IE is so far behind, its not even worth checking out what new features IE8 has to offer.
