Look at the table at http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/ietestcenter/ and pretend the IE9 column isn't there. MS actually admits IE sucks (sucked?) ass.

IE9 is actually pretty cool. I actually like it and I hope it only gets better. I like the interface, and speed. 

I currently use Chrome, Firefox, IE9Beta, and Lunascape. Sometimes I find a website that just doesn't work right and I end up having to go through my browsers until the site works properly. 

Hell Chrome, for a while would crash just visiting the home page for my college. http://www.gccaz.edu Firefox and IE worked just fine. Everything seems to be fixed now. 

For my education websites, Firefox seems to be the only one that is completely compatible with all my online school work. 

 

The software engineers at MS deserve a pat on the back, they have been bringing it on a daily basis. Windows 7 and IE9 are great.

BTW I've located a copy of MSN Explorer from 2002 that I had backed up on a CD. I'm going to go ahead and see if it'll install into Winows 7 Home Premium 64bit and see if I can browse the web with it.

IT's for the avg. user so it needs not apply to those whom know better. Well thats all I have got to say about that.

Tried it, but since it still beta I only tried for couple day and unistall it. I don't have any issues with the layout, speed was better on some of my fav website, didn't see any real improvement with the render on gpu, but it was the same with firefox, will wait till it's a finish product. Still more room for improvement.

Yes and how many un-installs?  Because I downloaded it, it was on my PC all of 10 minutes before I determined IE 9 is a POS, whose layout doesn't make any type of sense at all.  It's obvious they made changes merely for the sake of being different and not better functionally or performance... however it is beta let’s hope they fix it before final release

The Ribbon interfact has been the biggest destroyer of productivity since... hmmm.... Apple OpenTransport 1.01 (I'm doing an age check on peeps there :))

I will admit.  As much as I still think the ribbons are productivity suckers (as do my users), Office 2010 has them about as right as they can be.  You can at least modify them and create your own.  Like one big one with ALL the options you used to see LOL

Office 2007 is a productivity disaster though.  Thank god it looks like it will be short lived around here.

How? What happened? I haven't heard anyone have the same problems you had. I'm using it and I actually like it, it's a beta but I haven't had so much as a crash with it.
