Binestar was one of several readers writing in to note that Microsoft is listing IE8 as a critical update to Windows XP.

Opinion has been split as to whether IE8 is worth installing or not. Binestar notes delicately, "For those not interested in upgrading to IE8 at this time, the MSDN released information back in January on how to keep IE8 off your machine."
