Another poster wants to use IE8 on XP . I have traced a problem he is having with https://r1.res.office365.com/ - any links to resources are not accessible in the IE8 browser. As I have a similar config with IE version 8.0.6001.18702 (128 bit cipher strength) and see the same issue. For example https://r1.res.office365.com/owa/15....ic/options.gif shows an options icon (shown on next line):

In testing I did with IE8 the page I got was
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
Same result for site virtual directory page https://r1.res.office365.com/ but when tested with an old Chrome or Firefox browser version it works fine. Chrome reports connection details for this site as:

TLS 1.2

Key Exchange

Cipher Suite
AES_128_GCM is not supported on XPSP3 (ref: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../dd125380.aspx )

Is there a way to get info from IE8 to compare rather than "cannot display the webpage" message?

If you have IE8 or higher on XPSP3 and it works can you tell me what version of the IE browser and cipher are you using?

Why does it still work in Chrome but not IE8 I thought they shared the same crypto libraries provided by OS. Has Chrome has added enhancements?

This is good reason why you need more than one browser installed when troubleshooting. No need to tell me not to use IE8 - I know and rarely use IE8
