seems that if the spellchecker is all you need, then you're going to miss out on all the advances
that internet explorer brings, for the sake of one add-in..

throwing the baby out with the bathwater, methinks..

Yes, Firefox does have a spellchecker.

No spell checker option. At least Ie8 took ie7Pro in part. The tracking mode is confusing at best. Explain the script option to mr everyday.

And like I mentioned the cookie issue leaves a bad taste.

Have fun with IE9., but until I see some polishing, i'll stick to IE8 and I'm playing with Firefox 4 which seems to suit more my tastes.

IE7Pro spell checker working fine with IE9.

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

ieSpell works fine in the 32 bit IE9. The 32 bit version is the default anyway even if your running 64 bit Windows 7.

The ieSpell doesn't even appear on the 64bit version. Another thing noticed is that the 32bit seems to load up faster then the 64bit alternative.

The IE7Pro tries to place other things on like a Progsense and new toolbar while the ieSpell is a basic spell checking addon.

I'm running ieSpell and not having any problems. I am really enjoying IE9 the more I get used to it. :)

With any addon I stick to those with the basics only no other nonsense added on like tool bars.

I am having problems on one site with IE 9 over 8 however. When going to post a snipping or adding a link into a program name for the home page the post ends up with scrambled text instead. I ended up on Opera 11 to clean that up.

As fior general performance we seem to have a winner for most other sites however! I'm sure the minor bugs seen at this will be cleared up once you start seeing regular periodic updates.

IE9 slow

Hmmmm think I posted it sowmwhere but can't think where now - but the slow tabbing and loading - turned out to e the simplest of things - dirty wall phone connection cleaned out and off pushes in / out a couple of times - problem gone - things flying now.

Just goes to show one can sometimes go looking for a problem when it doesn't exist (in the machine) and forget the really simple things we take for granted.

All because my landlien phone wouldn't work this am fiddled with flters and surge boards for over an hour and a half before looking at that simple connection.

Someone has been asking why connection speeds with IE 8 on the XP Mode was faster then IE 9 on the 7 host. When asking if speed test sites were used the answer was yes. So I ran a few tests with IE 9 and saw different results each time!

Once you know there's no problems small even at your end the web actually becomes the larger factor with busy servers at a particular site, your ISP is swamped with people checking the mail, or hardly anyone is on and you fly like a rocket! The main thing to look at is overall performance over a lengthy period of time.

Gee haven't been on dial up since the 90s! That must be slow as.....

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1

After testing, IE7 Pro works best if installed before updating to IE9. The tool bar is grab pro. You disable that one and the other options work nicely. I also used the user scripts and they work well.

Now tweaks like IE9 Tweaker Plus v2.0 or Tweak IE9 will let you use some of the tweaks that you may have trouble finding except the resize option the 3 icons besides the address bar. Tweak IE9 works especially best for that except the option to show menu in contextual right click isn't offered once you've tweaked that option.

Liked mentioned, I also think that MS will also make a few tweaks of their own to fix these issues.

Still Ie 9 has a mind of it's own with cookies and CCleaner.

I noticed that updating all my cookies and saving them before installing IE9 kept everything in place. I also noticed that IE8 will not import all cookies saved by IE9.

ieSpell is good, but Speckie is better.
As for 64bit IE, just don't use it, it's not as good as the 32bit because it doesn't use the same Javascript engine. That's about the main reason.
So what if you're running x86 IE on x64 OS? Who the hell cares? If it works, don't complain about fixin' it
