IE 8 - Is it worth downloading?

My take on IE8
  • Loads faster than other browsers - comparable to Chrome
  • Very sluggish when many tabs are opened at the same time
  • Opening new tab is super slow
  • Interesting web slice feature (but not useful at all)
  • Supports CSS 2 very well
  • Compatible with sites developed on previous IE versions
It took me only one day to switch back from IE8 to Chrome, my favorite browser.  If you have IE 7 on your machine, do not bother downloading it.

Microsoft has a lot more work to do before it can fully convince me to use it as my default browser.
