The installation should have no effect on your speed UNLESS a set value functions different in IE8 than IE7. For example I turned off IE7's anti Phishing option because it slowed my connections to different sites and I got to many false positives. All IE versions are setup to enable cookies. I chose to accept first party cookies and is prompt for Third Party cookies. I stayed away from Doubleclick tracking cookies...then Google purchased them. I had to make a decision on accepting their cookies. I now "Try" to read all Privacy and Eula agreements. It's painfully just like reading a credit card agreement.
If you haven't installed IE8, go thru your IE7 preferences and copy them. Do a print screen if you have to. If you absolutely have to upgrade, you can compare settings. Read the "What's new" and release notes if they are available.
Most people hate upgrades especially if they are NOT having problems but HW and SW OEM are forcing you to by others. New Intel and Motorola CPUs force the hardware OEM's to upgrade which force the major Operating system owners(Microsoft and Unix licensees)to upgrade along with software and utility makers. They are forcing you to buy faster computers, more memory, bigger drives and making that parallel printer and zip drive that worked perfect obsolete. It's a mad house!
My 2007 Trend virus program will reach "End of Life" at the end of June. I'm hoping this free upgrade is painless but I know it's NOT!(grin)
