Internet Explorer 8: my gripes

So I’ve been using IE8 for the past few days and so far it’s great.  There are times when it’s really slow though.

More so when you try to open a new tab, its just so damn slow.  Much more than IE7 was.

I know you can disable all of the BHOs from being used and this should theoretically speed things up but so far no dice.

I’m hoping that there’ll be incremental patches rolled out by the IE team as it says that all future bugs coming through Connect will “automatically be fixed.”  Here’s hoping to them keeping their promise or either that I read that entire thing out of context.
