Computerworld - Microsoft will begin pushing Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) to enterprises next month, the company announced this week.
The decision to turn on IE8 updates will set businesses scrambling to either test the new browser or block the update, which replaces older editions such as IE6 and IE7 that many companies now require.
Microsoft will flip the switch for IE8 delivery via Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) on Aug. 25, said Eric Hebenstreit, a lead program manager on the IE team. WSUS is Microsoft's most popular tool for deploying patches within businesses.
The IE8 upgrade will be made available as an "Update rollup," said Hebenstreit in a post to the IE blog on Monday.
