Internet Explorer It would appear that Microsoft will finally take standards compliance in the browser world seriously, after dragging its feet for years. Back in November 2009, the Redmond giant already revealed that Internet Explorer 9 would come with CSS3 and HTML5 support, and now the cup runneth over, as Microsoft has requested to join the W3C's SVG Working Group.

That actually made a difference. I disabled all addons (Messenger, Research, Java etc.) and now my IE8 isn't so much slower than FF.

I get the feeling that a lot of those addons could be loaded when I need them instead of each time a new tab is created. Take Java for example (which took ~1s to load). I would be just fine with waiting that extra second when I actually need Java...
