Solution: IE8 Open New Tab Slow

ie8-open-tab-slow-3Many have complained that it is very slow to open new tab in Internet Explorer. If your IE8 takes more than 3sec to finish opening a new tab, then you’re experiencing the slow tab opening which is a common problem to many IE8 users. What follows are the solution to this “open new tab slow”problem.
Everytime you open a new tab, IE will connect to something before it gets ready for you to use. Consequently, the Add-ons that you’ve installed in your IE might intentionally or inadvertently slows down the new tab opening process. Recently, Microsoft has put a post in the official IE Blog to explain how Add-ons could potentially decrease the browsers’ performance in crucial activities like opening a new tab.
Now that we know what causes the problem, I think you probably already have some solutions there in your mind. Yes, disabling add-ons is indeed the only solution, but which to disable? I bet you wouldn’t want to disable those that you need badly while surfing the internet. The following is a chart provided by Microsoft that shows the median load times for the newest versions of the 50 most used add-ons in IE today. Users who have many of these add-ons installed will definitely notice a performance impact when starting IE or creating a new tab. This chart can help you to decide which add-ons to disable.

How to disable addons in IE8

Well, it is hard to remove or uninstall an add-on in IE. I would prefer you to just disable it, this has the same result as removing them. To disable addons in IE, open Add-on Manager by going to Tools -> Manage Add-ons. Find and highlight the add-on you want to disable, and then click on Disable button; another way is to simply right click the add-on and select Disable.


Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

If you don’t want to disable any add-on as they are important when you do your job or homework, you can always try to run IE in No Add-ons mode. To run IE without any add-on, go to Start, type Internet or Internet Explorer, then click on Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) link from the list.
We are yet to know when IE9 will actually go onto the market, but I hope that this problem can be fixed in IE9 so that users can enjoy using whatever number of add-ons they want while having a fast and smooth surfing experience.
