    I doubt the CPU statistics are right for Chrome. Running two tabs + a web app and adding the usage together, I get over 100k memory, which is where the fox hovers about all the time.

    Interesting benchmarks, I'm surprised they didn't also benchmark memory usage.

    Because if they benchmarked memory usage the ones they wanted to come out the best wouldn't

    For memory, scroll down here for that. I have others but don't have time.

    Well, here's another. Scroll down.

    It doesn't make any sense to me... why would Microsoft release another horrible update of their terrible browser when there's much more compliant and up-to-date options available? You'd think the common thing to do is to replicate or even improve on what is already available as open source technology... it's times like this I'm glad I don't use Windows.

    I don't think that would be any better in the long run. I've used IE8 on Windows 7, it is much better than their old standby, IE6. Competition is good for everyone, Microsoft just became complacent for a long time, it will be interesting to see where they go.

    They would do well to dump that garbage Javascript engine they're using and go with a faster one.

    They would do well to follow standards better.

    Read Oracleguy's link above-- you'll see they've been pretty deliberate in their non-compliance. butt holes. If you asked them they'd refute the standards

    Browser speed tests on Win7

    Pretty much says the same thing as the first. IE8 trails the rest.

    It looks like IE falls behind in almost all tests just as guessed.
