I have been using IE8 since I installed Windows 7 on my machine and have had no problems I use it's protected mode, spybot s&d, and MSE to make it even more secure. I have tried chrome but found no use for 2 browsers to be installed on 1 system when their was not a dramatic difference. I'm looking forward to IE9.

Guys it seems to me that each of us will punt for our own favorite browser. But the way I look at it is that I will try and have all the ones I like available to give me the widest choice. At the end of the day, if we stick religeously to one browser of another its like being an ostrich burying its head...you just end up with sand inyour eyes!!

It come down to people's choice ...
If people think it take 2 minutes to load a page is Ok then it's fine with them .
for me, i will go with the simplest & fastest one ...like Chrome ..(No add on ...)

I agree, 500Mb of RAM is not that much.
For the record, mine rarely hits over 150k, even with 4 browsers and 25 tabs open.

For the truth's sake, I must mention that IE8 is the most secure browser MS ever put on the table. But, that's just it. I don't know how many IE8 hotfixes were installed after I upgraded from IE6 on my XP machine.
As for browsing experience - God save us all! Slugish, memory demanding, with slow javascript engine, pays no respect about web-standards... No bookmarklets... Stinky accelerators...
Man, I am sticking at my Firefox/Chrome combination - at all costs!
IE8 - too slow, too stupid AND TOO LATE!
Check IE9 beta - it's far better then IE8 (not sure about security - it's still beta). It's a proof MS can learn. It looks and behave very similiar to Chrome.
