Overall you should see about the same. Actually I wouldn't be surprized to see 9 using slightly more implementing hardware by tapping vpu power. Some degree of shared video memory would be in mind for that.

WMC embedded Netflix does not work with IE9 RC. A script error is raised and no video is streamed. Via website, Netflix works perfectly.

I am not elateed because I find on the top of my 20" screen 1/2 an inch screen not filled by the IE9. If I press F11 the screen filled by the IE9 but I lost the visibility of icons at the right bottom corner. Dissapointed to say the least.

Installed the RC on my Vista and Windows 7 partitions and the 2 main features that I am glad got fixed are show tabs on a separate row and you can now customize the command bar.

There's nothing new there. The answer would be you can still add or remove items from the command bar by right clicking on that to add or remove home page, read mail, print, help, safety, etc. as you've been able to do with IE6, 7, and 8.

Still being in RC form and not the final finished release you will still tend to run into some problems with flash player and other things at times like active x controls and Java runtime. The RC is the last stage to work out any remaining bugs before the final build is out. From that point it's the usual security updates seen.

As far as flash and active x go, we all will have to add a step in our problem solving to include checks for ActiveX Filtering now. No doubt there will be some people wondering why YouTube is broken, or why IE9 doesn't show that they have Adobe Flash Player, LOL

Undoubtedly! For many the initial reaction is that 9 is broken without realizing this is still not the final version.

For those participating in the feedback on the other hand they already understand things won't work at times quite yet from beta to RC. It's still part of the development process.

Hopefully when everything is all set and 9 is finally out a 64bit version will be available to replace the now non functioning 64bit version of IE 8. It was nice having two versions to work with.
