Definitely and also with some of the Microsoft updates. Best results in Firefox 3.5 beta with Chrome next and Firefox 3.0.10 next but this sometimes can be affected by the Microsoft updates.

so does this mean that we should use something other than ie. and also will they fix this?

That's why I suggested the other browsers and you really need to ask Microsoft about whether they will stop trying to create a monopoly.

Seems the only remedy for the problem with IE8 is to use Firefox. Even to post this reply on IE I had to go through the gmail loading joke wich causes the entire IE to freeze. TG for Chrome and Firefox.

Instead of redirecting us to other browsers why doesen't Gmail just get off their lazy butt's and just fix the loading issues with IE 8.
 
Do you think this answers the question? no, only the Gmail geeks can fix this issue.

Halifax"rowing as in a boat or arguing"?

Call Microsoft and explain to them that IE8 does not work with quite a few third party apps and they will guide you to their latest newsflash which says exactly that but they left out Gmail. Why do you want Google to fix what Microsoft has busted?

Windows yes but that is your Operating System (your computer won't run without this until Google launch the Chrome Operating System but that won't happen for a couple years yet) but Internet Explorer no except for a few things such as Bank Accounts and certain downloaders such as Blackberry who insist you use IE. A browser is what you use to find your way around the Internet and gives you the connection. I'll still stand by my original placings for the browsers although you can now remove the Firefox 3.0.10 as the new version is the prime one. In order it will be Firefox for depth and security, Chrome for lightweight and speed.

If google can't make gmail work for the current version of a browser that is (all versions combined) used by 60% of all people in the world, then their product will fail.  fix it gmail.  microsoft has and always will be a bunch of jerks who make problems for everyone who doesn't cow toe to them.  but you gotta deal with it or your product will ultimately fail.  i give google and gmail 5 years tops if they just direct everyone to other browsers.  they'll lose so much market share in that time that a replacement will beat them to pulp.

Mark,

Nice to have you on board as another user who blames Google for what Microsoft do in an effort to make the same percentage of IE users use their products instead of rivals. Have you not read that the European Union was so inflamed by this attempt to create a monopoly they have imposed some of the largest fines ever on Microsoft and Windows 7 will now be issued with user choices for what browser they want to use and due to this it is Internet Explorer is likely to suffer in the percentage stakes. Considering that Windows machines account for 90% of all computers sold and these are all up to now pre-loaded with IE in one form or another it seems amazing that 30%  of the users prefer something else all the time and a large percentage of the remainder only use IE where they have to such as myself when installing from Blackberry or using one of my bank accounts.
