Windows 7: What do you want to see in IE9?

The ability to manage bookmarks. That seems simple enough, right, however with IE8 I'm having a hard time deleting bookmarks to put on a fresh load from my other browsers.

What they should do is shut down the entire IE operation and send Mozilla a white flag and a letter stating, "You win."

I want them to use web kit rendering engine and optimize memory usage a bit(if possible o.O). and I'll be using IE.

no browser beats chrome in resource usage ;P.

In a way, I think the EU has the right idea:

Just pull I.E. out of windows completely and let the buyer and user of the PC decide what browser they want to use.

A tech setting up a new PC could easily provide a browser from his/her own Utilities CD.

I won't get caught up in that "my browser can whip your browser" bull s#$t but suffice it to say my favorite browser AIN'T I.E.
Browser choice is as personal as "Boxers or Briefs,,,,silk or cotton".

I have a DOS batch file that will download and install the latest version of Firefox. NO browser required. It works a treat!

y'all have a great day now, y'hear?

windows 8.1 Pro x64

talking of memory usage, right now I have a iexplore.exe process using 945 meg ram O_o.

I got 6 IE windows open at the moment each with around 6 tabs open so it could be anyone of them, but one of them is using nearly a gig of ram, crazy. All the other are using around 200-300 meg each which is still a lot.

As a comparison I have a opera window open with 46 tabs, the cache to go back/forward is instant and its using 214 meg ram. So the efficiency per tab is far superior.

What they need to do is setup a proper addons center and give internet users the ability to create addons for there browser if they did this i think M$ grip on the usage of internet browsers would increase in strength.
