If you’re looking for the release of a tab-hang fix for Internet Explorer 8 tab-performance issues; then please note “that update isn’t going to happen.” According to a Microsoft spokesperson: “As stated in the May 5 IEBlog post, additional data was gathered from Windows 7 RC users and it was found that the additional tab “hang” reporting functionality was not necessary and an update was issued to turn the function off. We will continue to work to address responsiveness issues, but at this time the additional tab ‘hang’ reporting functionality will not be made available to Windows XP or Vista users.”
