Again, if you have to worry about 200MB you should consider getting more memory.

My two cents.

OK I usually don't install betas, RCs, etc. but since I'm clean installing Win 7 on Feb 22 (if SP1 RTW does just that) I figured I'd see what the talk is all about. So far it doesn't make much of a difference, and that's a good thing. I don't know though, that cut off Back button could be a deal breaker, Microsoft.

IE 8 used 200mb as well as IE 7. It's typical for a finished or nearly finished like the RC browser to run at about 200mb. The beta is more of a basic shell of what the finished version will look like not the finished product.

At present with two IE 9 windows opens I'm seeing 49,000+kb for one and some 53,628kb for the other. Another already finished browser(unnamed) sees about 61,652kb with all three open at once.

That converts to about 49mb for one and 53+mb for the second IE 9 window as seen in the processes tab of the task manager That's quite a bit less then 120mb even.

Query

I think my original post got lost somewhere or I put it in the wrong place so...
Have got 9 beta if I go to the RC will my settings for the favourites bar transfer to the RC without me having to reload them?

Plus do I have to unistall 9 beta or does it just "update" the beta?

Am doing this because my beta is playing up by putting up my searchs in one fnt and then reverting to another plus some screen flickering.

Oh and doubtless everyone probably has heard of this (posted with other stuff elsewhere)

Your settings will transfer no problem.

I updated from a RC Escrow build to the RC, you should be able to do so also from beta -> RC, but some will advise you to uninstall and re-install

Hands-on: Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate
Quote:
After tens of millions of downloads of last year's beta, Microsoft has shipped the release candidate of Internet Explorer 9. The latest iteration of Microsoft's new browser boasts a few new features, a refined user interface, better performance, and improved standards compliance.

Perhaps as a testament to the success of its platform preview program and beta release, the changes are, for the most part, quite subtle. The platform previews have allowed Web developers to track the progress of the browser's core rendering engine, and to submit bugs and feedback to the company; thus, when the beta was released, there were few surprises in the browser's treatment of webpages.

The new user interface was the big surprise of the beta: taking a leaf from Chrome's book, Internet Explorer 9's user interface is a pared down, minimal affair, designed to be much less intrusive and to put the focus squarely on websites rather than the browser itself.
