Hey so I have installed IE9 and it seems like it has made some significant progress. I currently have Chrome and I would like to try using IE9 for a change and see if I end up liking it better.

But I have two problems.

First, is there any way I can import my bookmarks in Chrome into IE9? I can't seem to find a way to do it.

Second is there any ad blockers that work with IE? If so which is the best? Thanks for any help!

Wrench->Bookmark Manager-> options-> export bookmarks

then in IE9
ALT + C(or the star icon) -> Add to favorites submenu-> Import and Export-> From file- choose file

Thanks. Oh another thing, google instant search does not seem to be working in IE9 even if I'm signed into my account and I can't find any option to enable it either, but it just works right away in Chrome. How can I enable it in IE9?
Any good ad blockers for IE?

Have just downloaded it and tested it myself, came across this thread from checking google, doesnt block everything but im guessing with a better hosts list it should work more effectively, its strange that its blocking some advservers and not others


Only thing is that its a 30 day trial, dont know of any others unfortunately.

On the IE9 beta - May go back to chrome as im not finding it the best browser at the moment. Dont like the fact that when you save a shortcut to the taskbar, the icon/colour scheme follows through to any other website:



And that when you click another link on your taskbar it opens a completely seperate window rather than tacking onto the current one.

Quite a few more things that are a bit annoying too, will post it all to MS team and hope they fix some of it before official release.

Have you tried clicking the "turn on search suggestions" that come up down the bottom of the url/search box when you type something in?
