IE8 Brief Performance
March 21, 2009 Leave a comment
so it got released yesterday and there’s a lot of speculation regarding performance, so I just briefly timed the load timed of a few of my favorite sites:
IE8 seems to do okay, my tests arent super scientific or even done properly, just a quick test between the latest stable FF3 and IE8 on my machine. The memory usage of IE8 seems crazy tho: 60mb for two tabs across 2 processes. Earlier it was sitting at around 210mb for 3 tabs open with 4 processes running.
I’m sure they’ll be some in depth performance reviews in the future, and I’ll be looking forward to it…
