Is it just me, or does the new IE8 (I just upgraded) suck memory bigtime? The usual pages now seem to be taking about 1.5G of memory and that's just one instance of IE when I have 3 or 4 up. Wouldn't matter much except my poor P4 with 2G of RAM on XP can't keep up with that sort of usage.
I have this sneaking suspicion that Microsoft is trying to drive an upgrade cycle to Win7. Sad part is it's working; I'm ready to upgrade now.
