Hello Sandie,

It's really up to you, but I think it's worth upgrading to. The link below can help show you what is new in IE9 to help see if you would like to.

Getting started with Internet Explorer 9

If you decide you didn't like IE9 after trying it out, then you could always uninstall it to go back to IE8 though.

Hope this helps,

It would appear that IE9 is pretty security-concious, although some websites appear to have problems with it.

As Brink says, give it a try. If you don't like it you can get rid of it in Uninstall a program in Control Panel. Windows will just revert to IE8.
