I have been amazingly loyal to Internet Explorer.  It has been by browser of choice for years.  I have both Firefox and Chrome as well - and often have all 3 open - but 80% of my browsing has done in Internet Explorer. 

I downloaded IE8 a couple of days ago and totally hate it.  It's dreadfully slow -although speed was supposed to be it's big benefit.  I've had to turn Compatability Mode on for several sites.  Even Google sites are badly handled.  For instance the Blogger editor doesn't allow the use of cut and paste using keyboard shortcuts (CTRL-X, CTRL-V and so on) and even the DEL key has been disabled.

Unless Microsot get IE8 sorted out real soon, my relationship with IE is over.

Come over to the dark side, I very rarely use IE these days. Firefox on desktop, Opera on PDA
