Yesterday, I've installed IE8.

Looks better here and there.

Today, I'm shocked!

I've reopened my web mail and it remembered the session. It keeps session cookies after closing IE8 instance!

I did not believe to myself and logged into an another web application, and then opened another IE8 instance. What do you think? - It shares the session between instances!

That is a serious security problem.

It prevents me from opening two sessions of a web application on my computer.

P.S. we have found that this problem was already discussed. See IE8 handles sessions/cookies different than IE7 - big trouble for - ...

Someone needs a brain surgery...

Quick solution: run IE8 with -nomerge command line option.

I agree there is no cure in general.

Usually it's easy to do it for the intranet: notify everyone about the change, or just put a shared link.

On my computer every IE8 link is with -nomerge option.
