Still with no release date, Microsoft has released details that the next version of its browser, IE8 will be pushed out via Automatic Update, Windows Update, and Microsoft Update as high priority to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 users.

For Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 the update will only be pushed out with an important priority.

For network administrators or users who do not want to update, there is a toolkit available to stop Internet Explorer 8 being pushed out.
