IE Tabbed Browsing

    I would like IE 8 Tabbed Browsing to work just like it did in IE 7. Settings
    are pretty straightforward they just don't function correctly. I would
    guestimate 40% open in the same window. I am back to the old and redundant
    right click open in new tab. Wow haven't done that in years. Would like to
    see better speed seems slower a lot slower than IE 7. Have looked at load
    speeds and they are in the milli seconds. I am talking about hanging for
    minutes and never getting there at all. Plus this download came as a window
    update disguised. True it was an option but nothing said it was just an IE 8.
    Wasn't even mentioned or i would not have installed the option. Once i get a
    browser to do what i want when i want that's all i need. Now i am back at
    squre 5 at least not 1.

    The vast majority of new pages open in a new tab, the few that don't have
    code in them that tells them to open in a new Window. Links open in new tabs
    unless the link is coded to open in a new Window. This is the work of the
    coder, not IE8.

    I jumped from IE6 to IE8, and with 4G of RAM, I find that IE8 is way fast.

    Then learn some of the shortcuts. E.g. press Ctrl- or Ctrl-Shift- when
    you click on a link if you don't want it to open in the same tab and if the
    site you are using doesn't assist you that way.

    One thing that really slows down tabbed browsing is if you are running a lot of add-ons. First I would disable as many add-ons as you can. I tend to run with all of them disabled, but it's personal preference. Next you CAN make it so all your link clicks open in a new tab by going under Tools>Internet Options>Tabs Settings, and playing with the settings in there to your preference.
    Seriously, stick with IE8, it is safer, faster and compatible with more sites than previous versions.
