IE* uses per tab process?

I hadn't noticed this while I was using Vista (Im sure it was using just one process), but in Win7 it seems to have copied Chromes idea of one process per tab.

Yeah I noticed the other day, it does seem a better way to do things.

I guess so, if one tab crashes it doesnt take the entire program with it.

I wonder where they got that idea from hmmm.

Google actually stole that idea from Microsoft, the IE8 beta has been using the multiple-process for stability design for over two years now and that was a long time before Crome 1.0 was released just a few months ago last year

The public beta has yes, Its probably been around a lot longer to selected Microsoft partners and internally within Microsoft

Hello dmex.

I haven't had the chance to say hello lately.......Hello!

It would be very interesting to "hear" your thoughts of 7000 so far; have you seen 7004?

Thanks.

I was wondering why it appeared as having multiple phyiscal windows open instead of just tabs in the taskbar. Interesting.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I could have sworn this was in Vista too. Still a much better way to handle it, I really wish Mozilla would get on this.

Yea it works well with Chrome, so should be good with IE8. I'll probably stick with IE8 while using Windows 7 as well.
