Umm. How many computer are you working on that have IE9? If they have IE9 installed they probably already know about computers, considering it's in beta, and you have to manually install it.

So you downloaded IE9beta so you could download FF

IE8 will D/L FF for you.

I've used IEx, FF, and now using Chrome/dev and IE9beta.

IE9b is pretty good, big improvement over previous versions.

I'd argue for chrome purely because it's run in a sandbox by default.

But thats my .02

Why does everyone pick on the little guy!? Poor IE! Microsoft is the best company evah! Oh wait, this is not Neowin.net so maybe I should knock it off with silly Microsoft fanboyism.

This should have happened years ago. God willing, we will see IE in the sub 10% range, globally, in a few years. Right where the NET framework penetration is at right about now, a decade after launch. (zing! see what I did there, a little bit of this and little bit of that, and a NET put down as the icing, eh, eh? )


Shut it down!, shut it down!, shut it down!...
