This is nuts it makes this site read blogger.com and you can not see the subdomain who's lamo ideal is this. Its one thing to make the main domain a diff color its another to hide the entire URL.
Someone has to find a way around this must be some way you can higlight the URL bar using java so the subdomain will be visable. Or someway to force IE8 into ie7 mode. We own our subdomains and M$ has no right to blank them out. They are part of our domain names and part of our keywork usage.
This has to be fixed.
Microsoft is taking away our legal use of subdomains.
Websites who use subdomains are not crooks we are legaly using 1 domain to create many websites. Just because some crook used a subdomain they should not be hidden.
Zdnet says IE8 puts dim wits ahead of tech savvy.
why do you have to obfuscate the rest of the URL information by default? No part of a URL is irrelevant, and information contained in URLs is becoming more and more relevant as time goes on (logically structured URLs, URL based identity management, etc). Why do I need to hold my mouse over the address bar to be able to see this? Surely there are better ways to emphasise the domain block of the URL? Embolden it. Change the colour of the domain, not the rest of the URL.
domain highlighting, ie 8 domain name greayed out, ie8 address bar subdomain, ie8 subdomains broken, making the subdomain visible in ie8
