Microsoft solicits testers to keep sending IE8 bug reports

By Justin Mann on
While Microsoft has not traditionally treated their bug reports openly after a title has left the beta stages, the playing field for browsers has been altered enough to push for change on their own policies. Now, barely out of launch, Microsoft is looking to get user feedback on the IE8 experience. The software giant is asking IE testers to keep submitting bug reports as they find new or regressed issues in the browser, letting people know that Microsoft Connect will remain open.

Though I don't see them moving away from "Patch Tuesday," we may see Microsoft becoming more proactive about bug fixing in IE8. But will that be enough to keep competitors away from their dominant market share?
