It's not so much that iTest plugins don't work with IE 8. Quality Center 9.2 itself doesn't work with IE 8. Now I googled around and found that there are ways to make QC 9.2 work with IE8. Others claim that with patch 26 for QC 9.2 IE 8 is supported.
We haven't tried any of these tactics in house though. I will talk to my co-workers and see if there are plans to test QC 9.2 with IE 8.
