IE 8 and Clarity Performance

From Microsoft's website for IE 8:

Performance improvements
Internet Explorer 8 includes many performance improvements that contribute to a faster, more responsive web browsing experience in the areas that matter most. Internet Explorer 8 starts quickly, loads pages fast, and instantly gets you started on what you want to do next. In addition, the script engine in Internet Explorer 8 is significantly faster than in previous versions, minimizing the load time for webpages based on JavaScript or Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX).

Wondering if anyone can comment as to whether one should see a performance improvement using IE8 with Clarity 12 vs. pervious versions of IE.

We have seen some users with performance improvements when replacing IE6 with IE8. However, whether this is due to something in IE8 or due to something being cleared as a result of doing an install, is not known, especially since some IE6 users see acceptable performance.

If one wonders why we are still having some users on IE6, we have a PDM system which is not yet IE8 compatible - work is being done to make it so.

Also, wondering if anyone has had experience using the Google Chrome Frame plug-in with IE8. http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9138459/IE8_runs_10_times_faster_with_Google_plug_in
