[CW] Internet Explorer 9 speeds past the competition - Page 3

post #21 of 44
Lol, reading some of these posts make me quite sad. Whats a few miliseconds faster when it crashes on some of you? The speed difference becomes negated by the time it takes you to relaunch ie9.

It's nice that firefox and chrome have some competition. No offense safari/opera users, but you guys will never gain market share. At least ie9 has a chance with the future launch of windows 8.

I was never a fan of any IE browsers till I tried 9 Beta. Have the full current release and very happy with it.

This is true. I certainly love to hate it. But IE got that bad reputation by being, well, bad. The last several versions took forever to load any page, and were 'only useful for downloading another browser'. Additionally, I am always pulling my hair out over websites and trying to make them look acceptable across several browsers and versions, IE6 being the nastiest of them all.

In the few minutes that I used IE9 today, I quite enjoyed the speed increase. It definitely has promise. Also, it is nicer and cleaner to work with than previous versions. It seems like Microsoft did a pretty nice job with this one. Hopefully it holds up well.

Are you using the final version ?

It was a know problem, and I had the same problem with the preview and had to uninstall it because of that. I thought one of the Windows 7 updates in the last two months had something to do with it. It said it was a reliability update related to programs that used IE components.

If the problem remains with the final version it only means they didn't fix the problem.

I won't be using it then.

IE9 is significantly faster than FF, I was surprised relative to IE8.

This is very good of Microsoft. They must had finally realized how quickly their market share with IE was going down and actually put good effort into their browser.

My only concern will be how quickly they will patch exploits with IE9.

Ie9? the browser was a joke and it is a joke.

How is the security? Did they close up some of those huge holes they had with early releases of IE?
