IE8 or Internet Explorer 8 or whatever we call it is lagging behind in the race of internet browsers. This product by Microsoft had once enjoyed the monopoly over the internet. Nowadays better or great working browsers have been launched in the market like the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Though IE8 is in comparison to these browsers but it lags in its loading time unlike the Google Chrome Snap On feature (loads real fast).The root to this problem are the 3rd party add-ons. These add-ons come with the installation of certain softwares installed in your computer over the period of time. These add-ons are loaded every time when the Internet Explorer is launched. Every add-on has its own loading time and thus plays an important role in the delay of the Internet explorer launch time.
In IE8 there is a feature provided by the name “Manage Add-ons”. This one feature can work wonders to your IE8’s performance. In this manager you can actually see the loading time of each add-on and disable the slower add-ons.
I am going to show you that how you can make your IE8 perform better for you:
1.Launch Internet Explorer and click on Tools. A drop down menu will appear.
In the menu click on “Manage Add-Ons”.
2.Now a window will open in which all your add-ons are listed. Give a look at the 6th column, it shows the load time of your add-ons. You can easily sort out all the slow add-ons with the help of the load time column.
3.To disable any add-on: Click on the add-on->Click on Disable.
And there is your problem disabled.
So enjoy a better performing Internet Explorer 8.If you are a Firefox user then you can also download Firefox 4 beta and if you if have incompatible .addons in Firefox 4, then make the incompatible addons compatible in firefox 4 .
