SSRS rendering problem with Internet Explorer

I have a SSRS report that is displayed on SharePoint 2010 site. When rendering one of the report where the result in 80+ pages Internet Explorer doesn't seems to be able to render it properly. I tried this on IE8 where it took about 50 minutes, IE9 most often stops to responds and crash eventually. When running in Google Chrome it takes just few seconds.

All help much appreciated.

We seem to be missing the actual question from your response. If your work does not require you to use Internet Explorer, then I would not use that browser. Instead, use Google Chrome or FireFox. If you find that you have better/quick results with Google Chrome; then please use that browser.

Different results will always be obtained with a different browser. Internet Explorer is not built on winning technology and utilizes an outdated framework. I am afraid we will not be able to tell you how to correct this in Internet Explorer. It seems that Google Chrome is able to handle the workload you are trying to send through. I apologize that I could not be of more help to you and wish you the best of luck.

Best Regards,

Is there any way to get some actual proof that this is not possible in IE, do you know of any websites that I can show to my client that using IE is not possible for some of their reports?
Unfortunately, I was not able to locate solid proof as you require, I have found proof by consensus that others are experiencing the same issues as you are - without a fix. I have outlined a few URLs for you below to look at in your free time. Perhaps you might even find something that works for you, and if that is the case, then I am glad you were able to get something from my response.

1) Slow Reporting SSRS 2008
2) SSRS Reports Lock-up IE
3) More Google Search Results

I hope this helps you.

Best Regards,

Is there any way to get some actual proof that this is not possible

What method do you propose to prove a negative.  The only way you can have a near definitively proof that it cannot be done would to search all possible locations in the universe, an then you would still only able to say there is no know way to do it at the present time.
