This only makes it default by user choice and doesnt make all programs open in 64bit mode
Exactly, for example if you click a link in an e-mail the 32 bit version is launched.

I did not quite realize that the RC is actually aimed at developers - at least that is what this article from Tech Radar says. See the firsr para.

hope so, 'cos I like it fast and responsive - not checking and re-checking stuff all the time..
I don't understand the advantage of keeping it 'lean' --- Isn't the point of having an advanced app to have additional (and better performing) functions? So having it 'lean' means fewer functions. To me that is completely illogical and counter productive!

Hello Danny,

Sorry, but that feature violates forum rule #19, and is not allowed.

Isn't rule #19 about 'ad blocking' rather than Tracking protection which is totally different

It would be different if IE9's tracking protection didn't go completely over the top and just block all the common ad networks (all that we use).

IE9rc: can't selecting text

I'm having problem selecting text in IE9rc. I also had the same problem with the previous IE9 beta. My cursor is stuck on hand icon, rather text cursor, which prevents me from selecting any text. I tried the same site on Firefox and I was able to select text with no problem. Any suggestion? I'm running Window 7.

IE9 RC x64 crashes before it can load.

Downloaded the update through the Contorl Panel --- Windows Updates.

IE9 RC x32 works fine
IE9 RC x64 won't even load and crashes almost immediately.

This update was from IE9 Beta x32 and x64 both of which worked fine.

On my other W7 HP x64 computer I had previously downloaded IE9 RC from this website.

x32 works fine
x64 comes up on the display and remains frozen for a while while the blue ball goes around and around and then IE9 RC x64 crashes.

Strange that IE9 Beta x64 worked okay as of yesterday yet IE9 RC x64 crashes.

IE8 x64 had also loaded and worked okay when it was on the computers
