IE8: Performance Problem With This Blog

by Jon Davis 4. January 2009 05:03

I've found with all public betas released so far of IE8 that it cannot handle this blog page ( without locking up for about 15 seconds while waiting on the last few files. I don't know if it's locking up because it's single-threaded and choking on some document.write's, or what. I just know that it locks up. And Firefox, Chrome, et al, don't have a problem--they stall on the document completion, too, but they don't become unresponsive like IE8 does.
