I installed IE9. I like this.

Following are some exciting features of IE9:
New UI
New Download Manager
IE9 fully utilizes Windows 7 features like Aero Snap, etc
It allows you to pin websites to Windows 7 Taskbar
It features a single menu for all menu items just like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera
Addressbar and Searchbar have been combined
It uses a new script engine codenamed "Chakra"

IE9 Home Page


Despite the beta label it is an impressively polished product.
Running along smoothly. I have two desktop. I was only going to install it on one for now but it is so impressive I installed it on both. I'm impressed with the amount of screen real estate that's been freed up in this version. The installer preserved everything - favorites and feeds, history, saved passwords, auto-complete data, etc. Install was quick and required one reboot.



IE9 works best with Windows 7. It can be installed on Windows Vista with Service Pack 2. It is incompatible with Windows XP, and that situation will not change between now and the final release. Microsoft hasn’t announced when the final release of IE9 will be.


Windows XP doesn’t support the Direct2D API that IE9 uses for hardware acceleration.

Microsoft execs said on September 20 that there have been more than 2 million downloads so far of the IE 9 beta,
which Microsoft made available for download on September 15.
