IE8 Super Memory HOG
Ouch, what a Mem HOG IE8 is. It will never release any memory until it is
shut down completely. Open a new tab, then close that tab, NO memory release.
Open a new IE8 window, then close it, NO memory release.

I went back to IE7, which has exactly the same problem, but with IE7 you can
minimize all open IE7s, and then the memory will be release. At least you
don't have to shut it down to release the memory.

Will MS ever make a browser that will work with memory releasing??

PS: I'm using XP pro SP3. Maybe IE8 works better with Vista, but I'm not
going there!!

Re: IE8 Super Memory HOG
Funny how I don't have that problem with my copies of IE 8: not on XP
and not on the Win 7 RC.

Here's a thought...What if you start Internet Explorer from the 'no
add-ons' icon?
