BetaArchive has problems with being viewed in Internet Explorer 8.
Other browsers work fine.

I suggest for people using IE 8 to use the following:

Go to:

EXTRA -> Settings for compatibility view

And put betaarchive.co.uk in there.
But I suggest you tick:

View ALL websites with compatibility view.

It will get rid of those boxes that lag behind in typing and when typing text that the box moves up and not seeing what you just typed.

I am using Windows 7 x64 build 7100.

Also on the HP website the text is too small to read, zooming in helped but this helped better.

Simply hp.com? Fine on my end. Not trying to debate/fight with you, but help figure this out. I am not experiencing any of these problems with either 32 or 64 bit IE.

I have the textbox lag problem and the tiny text on hp.com problem. Here is a screenshot of HP.com (not compatibility mode), much of it is entirely unreadable. For example, here I am trying to download drivers for my printer.

See.

I have this problem in all IE8 versions, ranging from XP to 7 and I am sure that you have it also unless you are not running IE 8.
But I have it in compatability mode running in HP.

Also Betaarchive textboxes (where this text is written) does have some lag in displaying text or randomly jumps up and doesn't let you see you're typed text until you hit enter then type a few words.

In compatability mode it works fine.
