It depends. If you are looking for short term/contract type jobs, frequent changes aren't bad. If you are looking for a long term job, your frequent switches could be a problem. I'm not sure why you think the market for 8 years experience would be worse than 6 years.

Regardless, I think you should think about what you are looking for. Talk to people at other companies. Network. Try to find a job you'll actually like.
All of the following truths are shameless lies. But what about this tiny ad:
