Is IE 8 worth upgrading to? I have no issues with IE 7 but I don't know if IE 8 works better or not.
Are the new features worth the toryble of upgrading?
Any issues (for those whyo have upgraded)?

Depends, got any HP printers or scanners? DON'T DO IT!! IE 8 in beta caused a lot of headaches and still seeing some older peripherals having issues with IE8 now that it's been released.
Get Firefox instead

Yes, I do have an HP 7410 All-In-One printer/scanner/fax which is about a year old. I have already had tourbles related to Vista 64 bit, so I'll give IE 8 a more careful look before upgrading.
How old are the peripherals that are troublesome? And is it only in the beta testing that the problem occuurred? It may have been fixed prior to release.

I don't know why you should have any trouble downloading IE 8. Which website are you going to? Microsoft has versions of IE 8 that will run on Win XP, Vista and Win 7 as well as 32 and 64 bit sytems. Go to www.microsoft.com and look for a link to Internet Explorer.
I am running IE 8 on a Win 7 64 bit sytem with no problems.
