Hmm, what particular resources does IE 8 seem to hog on you?
What is your OS? Level? Ver? Add-ons, Extensions, etc.. There
may be a fix for it.
When I first got IE8 via an update, it WAS a hog and full
of pauses mostly. I re-downloaded it from another source
though and installed it manually and everything worked
perfectly. Had a good experience with IE7 also, but dumped it
for 8's security improvements & other little things it fixed.
I know some who swear IE 6, 7 and 8 has memory leaks but I
can't see any evidence of it happening here, at least on 3
different machines; an XP Home laptop, Pro Desktop and an old
2k2 Server Pro, all updated OS-wise. My XP Pro SP3 machine is
a fast one with lots of RAM but the other two are slow, one
slow as molasses, but that's consistant and due to cpu
speed/RAM near as I can tell.
