because some of us actually use a vast number of sites that are IE only and chrome can't handle, so having an upgraded IE thats pretty much as fast as Chrome that works so far on every site I throw at it with all features. I'll take it.

SharePoint for example, try it on Chrome, it's dumbed down. IE9 you get full features in an upgraded fast browser.

I'm loving the RC, they fixed so far all my complaints I hated about beta. Most all my older admin sites woudln't work, and they all have worked so far! 2 thumbs up!
Good post. Thoughtful and concise.

Uninstalled, reinstalled, downloaded the .exe file to the hard drive and tried to install. Nothing will work.

Tried the adobe help forum and can't even get connected. I am sure they are getting swamped with people trying to get the flashplayer working. I confirmed the problem by installing IE9 on my netbook with the same results. Anybody receiving information on a fix please post.
Did you enable "active x filtering" in the saftey tab? If you did, try disabling it.

f12 sounds easy enough - it is just the rendering engine i'm interested in, to test out homemade webpages...

...i'll have to look into this as well - thanks for the tip. however, that version looks old, released sep 2009 - will it work with ie's 8 and 9?

i've had a quick look and a newer version only seem to be available as part of the paid-for expression suite.

i'll try downloading the trial, and see if superpreview is a stand-alone prog that won't time out...i also wonder if it's ie9 ready...

Am testing the RC as I type this.
I installed the x64 flavour (the installer would not allow me to install the 32 bit version).
It upgraded seamlessly, even loaded my x86 toolbars/add-ons properly.
Someone in another thread stated they couldn't listen to Youtube videos with this RC. I tested this myself and it worked perfectly.
Everything seems to be functioning as it should (thus far - knock on wood).

IE9 RC Performance Superior to IE9 Beta, to All Rival Browsers

Quote:
uring the evolution from Beta to Release Candidate Microsoft introduced in excess of 2,000 changes designed to improve browser performance.

In a phone conversation we’ve had yesterday, Rob Mauceri, Group Program Manager of IE, and Ryan Gavin, Senior Director of IE underlined that the work done to boost performance in Internet Explorer 9 was focused on real world customer scenarios, and not on besting rivals in any specific benchmark.

Assuring me that the performance team for IE9 never sleeps, Rob and Ryan emphasized that Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate comes with improvements spanning over 11 browser subsystems.

Internet Explorer 9 RC starts faster, loads webpages faster, and allows you to interact with web pages faster than ever before,” the software giant revealed.

At the same time, the work poured into improving overall performance for IE9 gets a tangible feel when measured with tools such as the WebKit SunSpider Benchmark.

According to Microsoft, thanks to its JS engine Chakra, IE9 RC is now the fastest browser in the JavaScript SunSpider Benchmark.
