2 small issues
2 problems. It maybe because I have installed Internet Explorer 8 beta.
 
When I try to click on any highlighted handle I don't see any statistics like I used to before.
 
When I try to challenge a player or computer opponent in a live game I don't get any answer. When I try to check the status of my challenge, nothing appears on screen.

The last time we tested IE 8 there was alot not working with Caissa and other sites. There is an "IE7 emulator" button on the IE8 toolbar that you might try activating and then try accessing Caissa with that. We'll probably download and test the IE8 beta again just to see what it looks like.

Both of these issues work fine on my end with IE8 without any emulator.
 
I use version 8.0.7000.0

(edit) Maybe Gladiator needs to update his java app.

Just downloaded IE 8.0 CR (8.0.6xxx)and did not experience any problems with a quick test of the site. I can click a handle in the online members list and see the stats.
 
Looks like the IE7 emulator is gone.
 
Did notice that IE8 does alot of stuff that is supposed to "help" the user - accelerators and such nonsense which I can imagine would muck up a website.
 
In general if you install IE8, make sure you say "no" to any suggestion to turn on a special feature that is supposed to "improve" your expereince. Just my opinion though.
