I still use IE, IE9 specifically. What does that make me? Lol. No issues here, slow a bit, but I have patience.

Why don't I get chrome? Not sure...

Hmm..We're supposed to only be using IE at work. I'm guessing they probably have the workaround / temp fix in place though. I use IE at home out of lazyness sometimes.

Same with me, I still use IE. Its such a joke that people are so high and mighty about not using IE. I hate the way firefox loads pages, interface of Chrome drives me nuts and I dont use plugins for anything, so why shouldnt I use IE?

Too all that off-topic jazz: If IE9 had a spell check similar to FireFox/Chrome/Opera, I'd be using it as my main.

But good to hear that MS is address its problems. Cheers on you mates.
