Visual Studio 2008 has nice enhancements over past version but it runs terribly slow especially on machines with not so great configurations.
However, Microsoft has taken some steps and released a Hotfix to resolve some inherent bugs which was indeed causing slow performance at certain areas.
Another small trick you can do is to turn off Auto-Recover option (I have seen visible performance difference after doing this).
Recently I had to design a layout for a web application in Asp.Net and I wanted to use something really flexible which gives me control over different part of the page (i.e navigation area , content area etc). I have searched and tried ajax borderlayout (extjs), <div>, frames, panels (asp.net) and iframes, then I have concluded that Iframes are best in all of them.
And I have also come to know that gmail is also using iframes in their page layout. so I think I have made a right choice.
