My best answer is... don't use ie8 (or 7, or 6, or 5..) –  lyrae Dec 6 '09 at 9:47

Ctrl+E works in IE8, but there's no way to remap it within IE.

If you really want Ctrl+K to jump to the search box, you could try using AutoHotKey or some similar program, which will let you remap keys for specific applications.
