Windows 7: IE9 - Website owners just wont be ready

IE9 - Website owners just wont be ready

We had the same thing happen with 8, here an example of what I mean...

Electronic Arts

One of the biggest game distributers on the planet has still to update some of their websites for IE9

Logging into EA - IE9

Logging into EA - Chrome

As you can see, IE9 cannot format the page correctly and needs to be in Compatability Mode in order to view it correctly. Chrome on the other hand, no issues at all.

Another thing is the rendering that IE9 uses. Although, compared to IE8, is faster and looks better it just cannot handle large amounts of information (espetially flash content).

I put together another thread highlighting extreme CPU usage while using a certain site, facebook...

Facebook, a resource hog...

I like IE9, looks & feel, but the fact that I have Chrome installed just to handle flash content is just silly. You'll see by my system spect that my machine should be able to handle anything a website can throw at it

Here's hoping that when the final public release hits completion they sort out the performane issues or else it's going to be a dark day for IE fans.

There is nothing that the IE team needs to "sort out", you said it yourself that "the website owners just aren't ready". IE is not to be at fault for that, especially if it works just fine with websites that ARE made to be viewed by IE9, or just generally new!
