Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 beta: The beauty of the web

I used IE9 beta for about one week. Overall, it worked like a browser should. I did have a problem accessing the setup page on my router using IE9, though. Didn't matter if I used 32 bit or 64 bit, logging in to my router took several minutes.

Went back to IE8, and login is dang near instantaneous again.

Oh well, it's still just a beta.

The one new thing I found with the beta so far no one has mentioned is a new popup bar seen at the bottom of the page similar to what the open source browsers see as far as the option to remember user names and passwords when logging onto a site. I forgot to grab a snipping of that one however!

I believe that would be the "status" pop-up for when the "Status bar" is not checked by default when you right click on a blank space to the right of the tabs. When it's checked, you do not get the pop-up anymore since it shows in the status bar instead.

I have the status bar checked off as always and still see that come up. I have that checked for use of the view settings for 75%, 100%, 125% when going through different pages where you end up seeing things in fine print at times or someone posts a not so clear image with small text for better viewing.

The status popup appears as a second smaller bar when seen at the bottom center with two or three options for save, do not, and a close button if I have that correct. At first I thought it was RocketDock coming up until taking a second look. RocketDock with a new quick launch bar? That would be something!

Again this is what is being seen on the 64bit beta. Later I will see that removed and be looking at the 32bit to see how things are with that since the beta manages to take over for both 32bit and 64bit versions of IE 8 when installed it appears.

Got them! I finally grabbed a pair of screens to show here. Note that this is a new type of prompting being seen with this. At least this eliminates that constant popup in the middle of the screen always seen for remembering passwords IE has always had. Thumbs Up for that one!

I get one of those but mine is to do with speeding up the start up by disabling any addons you may have. It's because I have the Roboform toolbar and it's just telling me I can speed up the browser start up if I disable it, but as it's only a few seconds I don't bother and just click on the x to close it.

I do know one thing, I have Secunia PSI installed and before installing IE9 it always showed that I had an insecure browser, even though I'm always fully up to date it still said that but it knew that there was nothing I could do about it it was just something to do with Microsoft.

Since installing IE9 beta, I now get a 100% result and no longer have an insecure browser

I'm still happy with the browser and like the way it works.

Loving it so far - my only drawback is that I have to use 32 bit for NetFlix due to Silverlight not being 64 yet - so far though... I'm hooked

When going for the beta it goes by the flavor of Windows(32 or 64) you are running not simply choosing between a link for each. The 32bit is for the 32bit Windows while the reverse is seen for the 64bit. Once the second drive is restored back to the Vista install there I can run the 32bit beta.

Another thing to mention regarding toolbars is how they are making that a change in seeing a modular toolbar appear for multiple purposes rather then seeing the usual popup in the middle of the screen. When going for a download like an update you now see the "run" and "save, save as, save and run" buttons on the same bar shown earlier for remembering passwords.

you can unlock the toolbars to move those little icons on the top right of the screen

The favorites open on the right side by default. Instead of only seeing the X to close there's also a small green arrow you click to move everything over to the left side. You are not able to move them back and forth however and they still open on the right the next time you go to click on them.

The one thing noticed right off about the favorites list in the IE 9 beta was no longer seeing them drop down over the present page you are on but squeeze the web page being viewed so as not cover over the left side of the page. I thought that was a consideration made by MS for the upcoming version.

I've never been a fan of IE and honestly, I don't think they will ever be better then some of the other browsers. But then again, maybe the time has come for IE to shoot up, who knows.
