Opening IE8 from favorites slowwwww

  legalrep 08:47 22 Mar 2009

Been using IE8 for a few days and seems ok but when I open from taskbar-favorites it takes ages to open up to 15 seconds! If I open from desktop short cut its about 5-6 seconds is anyone else experiencing the same and is there any way to speed open the opening time from the favorites menu?

Once open its ok but the slowness opening is so irritating! Do you think it will be addressed because if not I might just revert back to 7!

I did and look I'm back with good ol'IE7. That caused me a few hiccups initially, but it was nothing compared to the trials and tribulations I got with IE8 and I only had that for one day!

Why make yourselves suffer any more than you need to. Although I didn't try it myself, someone said when he had IE8 installed it also obversely affected the performance of Firefox, something to do with graphics.

Anyway I might have another look in about six months. When MS has has time to recover from the onslaught of verbal stones and arrows from us poor sad sufferers.
