Go ahead and download it, but I'd recommend not using Internet Explorer

yes you must uninstall the 7 then add 8. Though exploroer does make me pissed off at times!

in the past yeah, but surprising IE8 has caught up very well, and is receiving pretty decent reviews.

but firefox is still completely fine, no point changing it now.

Pretty much.
Everyone has their own opinion but the one consensus most people have it is of the major suckage of internet explorer.

No. You do NOT have to uninstall IE7 it install IE8. Microsoft just installs it over IE7. I recommend you install it. It's not bad. But I personally feel that Firefox is the best. Have you considered Google Chrome? It's excellent for the basic user and it's really fast.

IE has trouble co-operating with you
Chrome, google watch everything you do
Firefox, open source, fast, customisable, awesome.

I agree with Tako 400 that IE8 installs over IE7. IE8 is a better browser than IE7 for a good number of reasons.The one most important to me is that it is faster, although Google Chrome is still considerably faster than IE8 and Firefox.
