I've experienced slow performance with Internet Explorer 8.

Internet Explorer 8 is more standards-compliant than Internet Explorer 7 though, which is a good thing.

I don't think Internet Explorer is a good browser. Not even a decent browser.

I would recommend Mozilla Firefox.

Well, to each his/her own. I prefer firefox as well, but IE8 behaving that badly is most definitely some sort of add-on or plug-in (I've seen it many times myself). See if the same problems reproduce running IE8 in no-addons mode (iexplore.exe -extoff) in Safe Mode w/Networking (if you can). If it doesn't, it's not IE8 but an add-in.

Really, IE7 is not more secure than IE8, more likely less. Figure out what's wrong with your security set-up that allowed the malware to infect your machine.

I also use Firefox, by the way, with the NoScript extension (which blocks most exploits).

Stay with Firefox or Chrome then. I have both installed, but mostly use Firefox with NoScript.

Luckily upcoming Internet Explorer 9 is looking like it will be a big improvement over 8 and 7, or so I've heard.

I don't like IE 7 or 8.

You should be running the latest Internet Explorer on your computer. Update at once for the security fixes and other patches that come with it.

IE 6, 7, 8 sucks. IE 9 I think might be good.

Don't use IE 6. Use Firefox, Chrome, Opera or anything else instead.

For a start, you will not get IE9 to work on XP. You must have Vista SP2 or above for IE9.

IE8 is a perfectly good browser for XP SP3, and I have used it ever since it was released -

No silly Firefox or Opera is needed if you keep all updates and keep your system clean :nuke:

Infections outside of IE8 cause the problems, NOT the browser -

No, IE is not a perfectly good browser.

You have no idea what you're talking about, you're a web developer? No, you use your browser for porno.

I am a professional web developer who develop both at my workplace and on my free time.

I develop both web applications for customers and in-house web applications to be used by the staff.

IE 6 and 7 was absolutely horrible. IE 8 is a lot better than IE 8, but its by no means perfectly good.

IE 9 is even better, it comes with built-in development, and the WebGL support is nice too.

IE 9 still has catching up to do in many aspects. IE 10 is coming, and I hope it will be better.

It really sucks that IE 9 doesn't do HTML5 form validation.
