Karl, I am not using it either. In my opinion the nominal improvements that will probably be offered by IE9 are not worth the bother, to be the first to try a browser that will have problems until fully tested.

I, too, will wait until the jury has issued a verdict.

I'm very pleased with Firefox, especially the security offered by NoScript.

I only use IE for those cases where MS forces you to use IE to download certain info or for gigabyte iso downloads which resume fine under IE and the MS File Transfer Manager but not under Firefox. I attribute this to MS.
