Yes, it appears not all features work in IE8 on the board.

I don't find it fiddly enough to be annoying, but then again
I do use firefox almost exclusively except dropping into safari or Internet Exploder or Konquerer for testing stuff.

I guess I don't notice as readily because I am simply used to the fact that most sites I'm on, not everything works exactly the same in all browsers..
Any fool can be uncomfortable...
