    Hi, my scroll bar will not function until every last picture, ad, and goo-gaw
    is loaded. Is there a way to get IE8 to release the scroll bar as soon as the
    page is rendered?

    "as soon as the page is rendered"

    That would be after all content has been retrieved so the web browser knows
    how to correctly render the web page. Even that last image could change the
    layout of the page.

    There are several utilities that let you toggle between whether IE will
    display images or not. You could turn off images and then, when you want to
    see them, toggle them back on (but you will have to refresh the page to
    re-render the page's layout).

    All web browsers have similar behavior: The scroll bar needs to be
    reconstructed in real time as the page is being rendered. Your choices
    are: 1) wait until the page is fully rendered, or 2) click the 'X' to
    stop the page from being further downloaded.

    Should you choose the second option bear in mind that packets en-route
    to your computer may continue to arrive even after you stop the page
    from downloading.

    If you don't like to wait for ads - join the gathering crowd - install
    an ad blocker.

    Mmmm. I can move the scroll bar down before a SharePoint table is fully-loaded.

    Inconsistent behavior.

    Of course...and as more and more of the table is loaded, watch how the
    scroll bar changes.

    The attributes of the table, like its size and position, are already defined
    when the table object is seen by the web browser in the HTML code before the
    rest of its cells are defined. It's not like the web browser has to wait
    for more objects to show up to then discover what is their sizing and
    positioning in the document.
    Because you're talking about inconsistent (different) objects. Different
    web browsers also have different speeds for different objects, rendering,
    and Javascript interpretation. IE is probably the slowest (sure wish they'd
    address this in v9) so if speed is your sole criteria for choice of your
    primary web browser then you might want to install a different one, like
    Google Chrome.
