IE8/9 are the most secure browsers available for Windows Vista/7, thanks to Protected Mode (UAC must be active) that works like a sandbox isolating the browser and its tasks, including plugins. This means that also if exploited, malware will have so big restrictions that will be harmless and fail the infection...
Chrome too has a Protected Mode using Integrity Levels (new feauture of kernel NT6.x since Vista) but won't isolate plugins that will run in Medium Integrity (same user account privileges).
FFox instead is still missing a PM at all and is the most unsecure, even if it is updated regularly.

For this reason IE is the most secure browser with pro-active protection against unknown scripts/malware execution. If you don't belive me consider that also Charlie Miller (winner of Pwn2Own) suggested IE/Chrome (with UAC + protected mode ON).

So, when will the next version of IE9 beta come out? Are they still on that new beta every 8 weeks plan?

I've tried just about all that could be found and still end up with IE windows open!

Except for IE 6! where many looked for an alternate to avoid all the security holes seen in the old version there IE7 was an improvement but upto par with IE 8 and now looking forward to IE 9 once final.

You have this release confused with the previous Previews for IE 9. This is the actual beta release before the finished version is seen in Q1 2011. MS will want this ready before the SP1 is final.

I've been running 32 & 64 since the public BETA was announced - does this update happen on its own or sneak in with Windows updates, or does one have to uninstall and re-install the BETA? I've never seen anything about IE9 updates pop up anywhere since using it.

Thanks.

I think the key word there is "Leaked". You won't get it unless you go searching around for it, and where you might end up downloading it from might not be a good idea. for example I personally wouldn't be in a big hurry to download it from a Bit Torrent site. If somebody here comes up with a good link I might go for it though. Eventually it may show up on for download from Microsoft, but I think at the moment what you get is an older build.

Agreed - no, I was just more wondering if there had already been updates to the beta browser and I just never saw it happen and if users will have to uninstall and reinstall when this update becomes official... just curious

It appears that IE9 is now up to Build 9.0.8027.6000 (according to one source), a development release which supersedes Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 7 which was released recently, labeled 9.0.8023.6000.

And as users would expect, IE9 Build 9.0.8027.6000 doesn’t bring anything new to the table, being instead just a refined version of what early adopters can themselves download from Microsoft.

IE9 PP7 was released on November 17th, 2010, two months after the Beta Build was offered to testers, and exactly one year after Microsoft first demoed Internet Explorer 9 to the participants at the Professional Developers Conference 2009 and to the world.

Following the release of the Beta, the Redmond company continued harvesting feedback from developers and testers running IE9.

In this regard, the Platform Preview 7 and Platform Preview 6 release, both of which have been provided since the Beta went live, are in fact designed to integrate feedback from testers as well as soften all the rough edges of IE9’s core.
