Internet Explorer 8 Add Ons Account for 70% Problems.

According to Microsoft in a whitepaper released today most add-ons to IE8 are the cause of the browsers problems, from speedy performance issues to crashes. Microsoft has detailed several problems associated with browser add-ons. These include toolbars, malware, and restricted sites. They also discuss other topics such as User Agent String and concurrent download settings. The white paper by itself is a useful tool and performance guide for IE8 users who have trouble with their browsers speed, or performance, or operation.
