Internet Explorer 9 latest thoughts?

I never download any new update/software at its first announcement, and wonder as to IE9's suitability. I am being continually prompted to download it and have not seen any current adverse comments. Anyone care to comment?

The only problem I found on it was that there was no search bar on it. You have to empty the address bar and type what you are looking for on that. Thats the only draw back that I could see.

No problem with IE 9 at all, try it for yourself you can always revert back by uninstalling it. Give it a chance!

I have to agree. IE9 is, in my opinion, the best version yet - BUT not as good as Firefox ;-)

I have gone back to IE8 but mainly use Firefox as it seams to work quicker. Update for Firefox is now Version 4.01

Gave up on it and went over to Google Chrome. I couldn't log on to my bank account nor could the wife enter any on-line competitions. The pages came up as plain text. Other numerous niggles. Decided I would try Chrome and have found it very good.

However, I am not giving up on IE9. It is still on my system and hopefully future updates will iron out the problems I have found.

I find IE9 to be quite quick and quicker than Firefox on this site. I have had only one snag. Royal Mail SmartStamp would not update with IE9 and I had to uninstall and go back to IE8. SmartStamp apparently depends on IE and no other browser to update (poor program). However I think that problem is cured. You can use compatibility mode.

For me it's the best browser yet. Have the latest FF but just as a stand-by.

I'm finding IE9 excellent... just be aware some sites may need to be run in compatability view to work properly. On PCA I found I couldn't tick a thread as resolved and to get the green tick to "stick" (tried four times). Switched to compatability view and it worked first time.

I love the uncluttered appearance of IE9... for me its the best browser yet.
