Bugs? I seem to recall users were having problems with IE9 when it first debut.

This deals with Flash, and Shockwave:
Why are there still so many bugs in IE9? - Microsoft Answers

This deals with an Intel driver that I have (Igdkmd64.sys (64-bit) v8.15.10.1968), but the one in the link is Igdkmd64.sys (64-bit) v8.15.10.2104, so, I'll probably have problems there.
Flash apps--newest version of Adobe Flash installed - Is anyone having - Microsoft Answers

There were also problems with CSS, and hardware acceleration, but I digress, and its time to get .
Hope you had a great weekend!
i never had any problem with IE9 even when it was beta. when it came out i stayed with it. if people would use the recommended install they wouldnt have any problems.

Google developed open network protocol with Google sites might not be faster than accessing the same site without SPDY:

Guy's Pod Ľ Blog Archive Ľ Not as SPDY as You Thought

Without SPDY, IE 10 is faster Chrome or Firefox:

Internet Explorer 10 Is the Fastest Browser, Better Than Chrome 20 and Firefox 13 - Softpedia

When you have a 30 Mbs pipe to the Internet on you computer and 4G on your smartphone, does 0.6 second really matter?

You would also have to buy more ram for every computer in the facility and upgrade to other programs since some xp programs don't work on 7 and imagine the cost for business licenses to have every computer be genuine. Anyways yea they will eventually move on but with today's economy that is going to be very hard and costly.
Hardware and licensing costs are costly, so is updating legacy business applications that were written for IE 6. I've seen companies where the business flatly denied updating such business applications that would've cost much more than hardware and licensing...

Could you expand on the differences of a recommended install in comparison to a custom install?

What Google wants is irrelevant (and sounds a bit stupid, btw, IE8 is relatively new) forcing people to upgrade will increase piracy if said people does not have money and cracking stuff is so friggin easier than coughing thousands of bucks in Win 7 licences.

And man, I've see so much cracked stuff with my job... even friggin servers running Server 2008 r2 Datacenter (5000 bucks).

So yes, I believe in what I said.

Not that catastrophically notice. It didn't say the sites will not work at all, just "not supported". In the short them, they'll work as normal and in the long run we'll slowly begin to see some bugs, it's not an all or nothing thing.

Regardless, it's a good idea to dissuade people of usnig IE, 6, 8 or 9, or whatever. If Google if really serious about security, it should forbidden every IE on every of it's sites, and allow only serious browsers.

But I don't think anyone will change its mind of what browser to use just because Google says so.

IE9 has the best security Alejandro.. look up threat blog from the popular antivirus software makers. there you will see how they know which browser has the best security.
the biggest problem people face with internet explorer, is they opt for the custom install where they choose what they want. i use to do that got viruses and tracking cookies, since i started installing the recommended, i havent had any viruses or tracking cookies.
plus i use microsoft security esstential.

Oh, just like they (google) did not force its users to change their gmail look, and Docs, now known as Drive without an opt-out feature?
