Is it worth upgrading IE8 to IE9? Are there any known incompatibility issues with IE9 with Windows 7 just like its beta stage?

I strongly recommend upgrading to IE9. It is so much faster and better, it makes IE8 look stupid.

Yeah, it had lots of improvements. Do you think this web browser is as good as firefox or chrome, or even better?

Personally, I wouldn't say it's better than Chrome but definitely better than FF and IE8.

That's just my opinion though because of what I like in a browser.

Based on my own preferences, I'd rank IE9 as the best at the moment, with Firefox 4 second.
IE9 has better font rendering than Firefox 4, which I also use regularly.
Tried Chrome recently and it had problems with some sites I use, so gave up on it.

I'll second (third?) the motion that IE9 is pretty good. Definitely better than IE8. I'd say give it a try. If you decide you don't like it you can always uninstall it and revert back to the default IE8 for Windows 7. If you're not used to Chrome of Firefox there will be a learning curve to get the most out of IE9.

How do I install or uninstall Internet Explorer 9?

Actually I use Firefox most of the time, and sometimes Chrome, but almost never IE.
Ever since my IE updated to IE9, it couldn't connect to the internet while ANY OTHER BROWSER CAN (ff, chrome, opera) and programs that rely on it (such as my antivirus) could not connect to the internet.
It was an auto-update, by the way. I did not realize it had been updated until I opened IE...

EDIT:
And NOW firefox is following IE's lead... Along with Opera. The only one working right now is chrome...

So that would indicate you have other issues. Google Chrome and IE on Windows use wininet for creating connections with winsock, whereas Firefox is a sockets app (so has it's own network layer, and only talks to Winsock on Windows). Might want to consider a 3rd party filter driver or winsock LSP causing the issue.

Eh? I don't get what you mean. I'm a complete klutz at technical difficulties. XD
Alright maybe not a complete klutz but you know what I mean.

Basically, different browsers use different means to connect to the internet. Since more than one browser is having internet connectivity issues it's probably computer related rather than a problem with just IE9. If you still have IE9 installed I'd suggest uninstalling it.

How do I install or uninstall Internet Explorer 9?

Then I'd run a System File Check to see if your computer has any incorrect, corrupted, changed, or damaged system files. If it does SFC will try to install the correct versions if possible. (If SFC finds any problems, run the scan 3 times because sometimes not every file can be repaired/replaced on the first or even second scan.)

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
