SUMMARY: If you find webpage transition animations annoying when browsing the web with Internet Explorer 8, disable them.
Internet Explorer 8 supports page transition animations that some web developers may apply when entering or exiting a page. These include wipes, blends, and dissolves.
While some may find these animations enjoyable, others may place them in the same class as the blink tag - extremely annoying. Thus if you frequently browse sites that use this feature, the following disables transitions:
1. Access the Internet Options dialog box. If the menu bar is visible, you can select "Tools" - "Internet Options". If the Command Bar is visible, click the "Tools" button and select "Internet Options". If neither are available, try typing Alt + T then O.
2. When the "Internet Options" dialog box appears, click the "Advanced" tab.
3. Underneath "Browsing", scroll down and uncheck "Enable page transitions".
4. Click "OK" to close the dialog box and store your settings.
Return to the Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 page.
