IE8 == Worse Performance?

RE: IE8 == Worse Performance?
Want some fun? Try firefox 3.6 which bumped connections up to 16 - YIKES!

IE7 mode for IE8 is for the rendering engine, not the network connections (to the best of my knowledge).

One thing you might try doing (if possible) is moving that inline script that comes right after the css. Not sure if the browser would start downloading images earlier if it didn't hit that script but it's worth testing.

Aside from that the only other suggestion I have (if you feel like getting crazy) would be to deliver the images directly in the css (or in an external resource file). mhtml for IE and Data URI's for the browsers that support them. It gets more complicated because you're having to do per-browser logic but you'll see some crazy-fast speedups as all of the images will be downloaded in one request (and without resorting to sprites - regular images).
