5 minutes till showtime.
IE8 64 bit runs great on my Win 7 install but IE8 32 bit runs kind of slow on some web sites and crashes quite a bit. Here is one site it is really slow on www.apple.com/ipad
the pics take a long time to load up with 32 bit IE. I go to the same site with 64 bit IE and it is faster than Oprah downing a case of honey buns.
Hopefully IE9 will fix this.
Edit: Downloading it now.
