- 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.
