Info World says IE8 is Bloated
http://weblog.infoworld.com/enterpri...onsumes_m.html

Excerpted from article by Randall C. Kennedy:

"If I boot XP (SP3) on a 1GB system, I have more than 800MB free. Add
IE 8 to the mix and, depending on the site workload, I can suddenly
find myself with less than half that. The situation is even worse
under Vista. In fact, IE 8 is fatter than my word processor (Word
2007), spreadsheet (Excel 2007), and presentation software (PowerPoint
2007) combined. It's even fatter than Visual Studio 2008 with 10,000
lines of code and several complex, multi-part Web forms loaded into
the IDE."

Come on folks, this is crap. I was so disappointed in Office 2007
also. There is simply no good reason for all this bloatware.

Re: Info World says IE8 is Bloated
What is your question for the group?

If your question for the group concerns the beta version of IE 8
currently available for testing by developers, I'm afraid you're in the
wrong place.
