    Microsoft recently released IE 9 which promises faster, safer and more convenient web browsing than any other browser.

    Is this enough for you to give the new version a try?

    im pretty happy with firefox and chrome. and one more opera
    except IE offers me something new. but so far im not interested on that
    IE gives us more alternative for browser, but there long way to go (yeah you all know whats that) :toast:

    I have been using the beta for quite some time with no issues
    The ability to easily disable plugins is great.
    The clutter free ff4 styling is awesome
    It utilises that expensive graphics card/cards
    5!

    It is kind of a winner.

    I'm fine using Firefox for now. Maybe one day I'll install it to try it out; but right now I'm not going to bother.

    Already using it, but happy with Chrome (need IE for banking)...

    Why when I try to vote in this poll does it not let me and brings me to the front page???

    IE9 is not bad, but it's no Opera. I'll stick to my favorite browser, but kudos to Microsoft for releasing (at least somewhat) standards-compliant browser that doesn't suck.

    If stuff is spelled wrong its because IE9 doesn't have spell check or something
    Well here is my take on this i did 3 runs each on same server.

    When useing IE9 the web pages do load faster than my firefox(it is up-to-date) and IE9 scrolls much more smothly

    Oh and by the way I pay for Speed (d/u) 512K/256K

    One thing i can't stand most is this such a small box

    I downloaded it purely for compatibility purposes.

    Some things only work with I.E.

    For example remote access to my phone only works in I.E

    I'm using IE9 now.
    It is faster than FF, but for same reasons as pantherx12 above I constantly switch between FF and IE.

    Is anybody else having problems with Adobe Flash Player on IE9?

    I get this (which is almost funny), and when I close IE9, proceed with the install and reopen IE9 youtube still tells me I need flash player..

    I'm loyal to FF even tho this might be a better browser It was FF that changed the way we browse and you shouldnt forget how gay IE6 was back then...

    I'll upgrade to it when it shows up on Windows Update.


    I do like IE6 but it is such a malware magnet.
