Sometime in the coming days--perhaps even today--Microsoft will officially issue its near-final Release Candidate (RC) version of (IE) 9 to the public. But in the days (hours?) before that release, a so-called "escrow" build of the IE 9 RC has leaked onto file sharing sites. (Thanks to Tom Warren of WinRumors for the tip.) So here's a quick look at this release in anticipation of a wider review of the actual RC, along with a few quick notes.

According to sources, this is the Release Candidate build and will officially be released in a few days.

Oh no! Damn! And, this is in part because they wanna throw a "lavish party"? I would have thought the "lavish party" would have been more appropriate at the RTM stage!!!

Oh well...I really did not want to go back to Chrome (though I use it all the time and like it better than all other browsers including IE8).

Well then...Feb. 10 and back to Chrome it is, I guess!

If you think about it though - in all fairness, this "expected release" today was just a rumor that we (especially, I) took to be real...very real. I don't think I have come across a single official statement from MS saying that they were releasing the RC today - though, admittedly, I may not have read too much about it. Nevertheless, there was actually no real reason to it seriously.

I learnt a valuable lesson today!

You are correct in saying that there was no official word from MS, but there were conected sources saying that today was the day.

My thoughts are that MS changed their original plans

Bah.

EDIT ~ To elaborate: The beta was released at a conference in San Francisco; we who have been waiting for the release on SevenForums were waiting for a particular timing acording to the PST timezone.
And now for the RC, the big story was that it'll be released today. Instead, we got a hinting confirmation from Microsoft that on Feb10th, in san Francisco, they'll share "important news". That was the big story that was supposed to be revealed today, not the actual RC itself. So yeah... More waiting, more bugs from the beta and stuff... *sigh*
Bah.
