IE8 and HULU

So I was bored at home yesterday and my wife's computer had IE7 so I
thought to myself "self, give IE8 a go". So I did.

After it was installed I decided to watch "Bones" on hulu.com. Wow....the
picture was jerkey big time. I thought it may be the buffer so I let it
fill and continued to watch. Didn't help at all. Switched over to
Firefox and it was as smooth as can be. I guess there is something to all
this talk of IE8 being dog slow.

Try switching IE8 over to compatibility mode for hulu. If it makes a
difference it's because Microsoft finally did something mostly right and
it now breaks websites. 😛

Hey Matthew:

Didn't think about that. I'll give it a go....just for kicks.

It that doesn't work. Just kick the computer with your left foot and
then your right. If it still doesn't work send me a million dollars.
