Go with 8, the whole reason for updating a product is to fix issues with it and make things better. Like a car, you dont drive a 78 ford pinto just because " you are so used to driving it", you get a better one because its safer and easier to use.
If you want to do some research on it, I highly recommend Opera instead of Internet Explorer. Opera has been around for a long time now and there is an option in the browser that allows you to get your internet pages much faster, even on a slow connection.
