Internet Explorer 8 is released to public. I installed recent beta’s of IE 8 and I had some problems with it. Before I installed IE 8 I run one test which I will share below. The result is promising ;-). 10%+ less memory usage by IE 8 when comparing same websites opened in IE 7. I personally would suggest that everyone using Windows should upgrade Internet Explorer to version 8. Why should you upgrade? The new, improved Windows Internet Explorer 8 can help make your everyday browsing experiences – searching, communicating, shopping, reading news – easier, faster, and safer.
