IE8 Install Yesterday & Regretting It Already

  Graphicool1 12:57 20 Mar 2009

If you haven't made your mind up wether to download it or not, learn from my mistake and don't! Wait awhile, till Microsoft have brought out some patches, to try and passify the angry, baying mob, hammering at their door.

Before I downloaded it someone on this forum said they already had it and it was really fast. Don't you believe it. It's painfully slow and full of bugs. As soon as I figure out the best way to revert to IE7...IE8 it will be history.

If you uninstall IE8, you will be left with IE7

I have been using it for a few months now and I have not found any bugs etc. It is very quick and I am happy with it. Personally I would be looking closer to home for these 'problems'.

Well prior to installing this yesterday, fresh from a clean install of Windows XP. My PC was performing superbly. Then came IE8 and everything has gone downhill since. When I say everything I of course am refering to IE8

As with Gandalf, have been using this for some while now and found it to be extremely efficient and fast

xp home sp3 2meg ram pentium 4 2.8 im finding it very slow like yourself, IE very very slow to load with my home page being google i have a very good adsl download speed so it can't be that like you its very frustrating, not sure if its because its more suited to a core 2 duo & not a single core

using on vista very slow even more so on pc advisor site for reason unknown.

Just installed it today and i have to say its surprisingly fast.

I generally use firefox for my websurfing needs and only use IE for windows updates,

But its insanely fast on my setup, pages load almost instantly and all my plugins work 100%.

No bugs to report as yet.
