What I miss is the little triangle next to the forward button (top left). Seems to be AWOL.
Seems just as easy for me to right click the back/forward for the drop down menu of previously visited sites. I would still like the drop down arrow though.

You need to clear all cookies.

The thing with IE9 is, much like Vista, 95% of the work was done on the guts and are not "visible" by just looking at it and opening menus. So it seems like "so much work for so little". But...

HTML5 was an astronomically huge update. HW accelleration (Really needed by HTML5) was also a fairly large task. You might well ask what it taking FF4 so long to come out and in the end will it really look and act on the surface much different?

Its the internals that everyone is working their butts off to improve and the window dressing is just enough to get people to update based on looks alone while they (mostly unknowningly) pull in a modern browser engine that will serve the web for the next 5-10 years...

As for spell check... wel lit might be nice of course, but it WOULD bloat it up a lot and would be a major bit of work to port over say the Office spell checker into IE install (Though it might be nice if they installed it WITH office). But much like a ton of other features... "There's a plugin for that". MS doesn't necessarily need to do absolutely everything.

My single gripe with IE is the constant corss site scripting modification announcement that brings up a HUGE popup covering the bottom of the window every other page I visit. (Yes I have security settings on). THey make a streamlined browser then they pop that thing up, completely removing any space saving they gained at the top

Oh, and as far as "Just more reasons to like FF"... you DO realize that there are PLENTY of gripes about FF that could be made in it's own thread right? In fact they are made in nearly every FF thread that comes up! :/

Yeah, I guess that's how they want us to do it. But the little arrow was handy.

Regarding the spell checker: I think it is good that there is no default spell checker. Especially on the forums we use so much jargon that there would be always a lot of red flags. I use IEspell and that works very well.

Are you talking about the dropdown History arrow?
CTRL + H opens the History dialog so that you can check the websites browsed. Press ESC to close the dialog.

IEspell seems to be working well for me also. I've read that some folks are having issues with it. I haven't found any yet

Highlight the word that you want to check and then right click on it. You get this context menu:

Thanks Jacee. That is handy too. But I was talking about this which I guess is CTL+Shift+H:
