IE8 Standards Mode Problems

In a previous post I talked about the new IE8 Beta 1 release and IE7 compatibility mode. In that post I mentioned that I had only run in to one site that didn’t render properly in IE8 standards mode. Since that post, I took a look at my blog in IE8 standards mode and realized that it also has some problems.

After doing some more quick testing, I actually noticed that the Snap preview windows and the Live Search display panel also have problems. The Live Search window actually doesn’t display any results while the Snap preview window has some visual issues.

In using IE7 compatibility mode, a few things that I hope the IE team will change are to make it a per-process setting which doesn’t require a restart in order to take effect.
