    Woooow...that is the most crappy sh.. I ever have installed......
    Constantly getting "Windows Explorer stopped responding.....restarting" :banghead:

    Uninstalled the thing...and everything is okay.....

    Tried on two diff. computers (w7 64 / w7 32) same results......

    I am not impressed......my good old FireFox is not going anywhere :)

    Those demos, like the one with flying logos (Flying Images) works 20x faster on Firefox 3.6 and Opera 10.54 than on IE8.0 and IE9.0. I just can't believe that M$ cannot make proper browser. They should buy Firefox and implement it as his own browser. They did the same with company called Connectix and his Virtual PC.

    I can't really agree with you there. IE 8 is a good browser, I don't notice any difference in speeds on Firefox and opera or whatever. Maybe a few milliseconds per page, but it's nothing that matters. For some people IE works better than Firefox.

    especially if those people are using active directory and group policy.

    Nooooo! Microsoft would find a way to mess Firefox up. I'm not even anti-Microsoft and I honestly believe Firefox is far better off without Microsoft's "help."
