Windows 8 - 64-bit
 
 
Internet Explorer 9

Forgive me if this isn't the right place for this message, feel free to move it or delete it.

Tonite I had time to turn on my Laptop, Windows 7 Premiun, there were 87 new updates.
I took my time installing them all, I thought I had un-ticked IE 9, NOT so.
I didn't want it, I did finally find it and un-installed it, until I can get used to IE 8.

What are your thoughts on I E 9 ?...I trust on this matter.
Thanks for your replies.

If you are going to use IE then use IE9 as it's far more compliant with modern web standards and IE8 is obsolete.

IE 9 works much better for my laptop since it loads websites much faster than IE 8. It also uses less CPU for my laptop giving me much more battery life. Also more complex websites that use a lot of javascript are more compatible and work better in IE 9. If the user interface is the only reason you hate IE 9, you can make it look close to IE 8 by showing tabs on separate row, showing the status bar and the menu bar.

I like my IE9.

I use my Chrome for playing on line Flash games like at miniclip.
Also use Chrome when searching unknown sites for info.
If it gets screwed up just uninstall Chrome and install anew.

Why chance messing up IE.

The big thing, I.E. 9 has many security updates included. Also I have found that keeping I.E. your default browser whether you use it or not helps getting Windows Up Dates with less hassle. I don't know why. Maybe because Microsoft likes Microsoft.
