Awesome. The IE team put up a “performance testing” video showing tests they did comparing IE8 and other well-loved browsers.
See it, plus other IE8 videos, here: Internet Explorer 8: Videos
NOTE: We don’t win every scenario. I think this is a good, honest video. While we do come out on top for page load speed on more of the top 25 web sites than Firefox 3.5 or Chrome 1.0, it seems to me that the main points are:
“IE8 is way fast, just like the other guys.”
“There’s more to a browser than just speed.”
