Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) Release Candidate (RC) on February 10, 2011

I have IE9 Beta x64 on my task bar and would love to use it more but FF has tons of addons that make it hard to switch to IE9.

I would love to see a list made by someone that lists the leading Firefox Addsons and the comparable addons for IE9.

If I was pretty confident that I could replace the functionality of the FF addons either with IE9 built in features or IE9 addons I would switch to IE9.

I don't think that I am alone in having this opinion.

Say, may I ask you the winning lotto numbers for Feb 9, 2011? Since you have already been on Feb 10 checking your Windows Update for IE9 RC, I still have 8 days to place my bet.

You won't see other the prerequisite for SP1 listed in the updates for anything other then a final version. Since IE 8 came with 7 and IE 9 is still beta soon to go to RC you have to go to MS directly where you then see the download now option. Internet Explorer 9 Beta - Microsoft Windows

Now coming soon that will show RC(Release Candidate) not beta on the page there. You'll notice right under the download button it automatically detects which version of Windows and which flavor(32, 64bit) you are running. That insures you are downloading a 64bit version onto a 32bit Windows.

The next thing I will be looking is how it compares to IE 8 since the newer browser will start to implement hardware as well as how far it has come from the beta. With the ISP here I can view movies online where this should be something noticable.

RTM, not RC, unless MS has changed. You will have to download from MS, remove beta and install RC.

Since I have been beta testing this has been the case. Last beta I had of IE9, I had to remove to install updated.
If things have changed with MS, that's news to me.
