Working fine for me on IE9:

Although I must point out that I can't check on the 32-bit edition of IE9, because the 32-bit IE9 crashes on me no matter which site I visit!

It works fine for me in IE 9 beta 32 bit but its crashing IE 9 beta 64 bit. If I click fix this problem the page reloads and crashes again. The only way out is to quickly close that tab.

I've posted a comment at the TechRadar site mentioning that some IE 9 users are having problems with the link.

I do not use IE 9, however, I feel that this reflects a peculiarity that should be investigated. I'd notify MS but I've no idea how to do such and get the attention of anyone other that a Level 1 tech person.

The TechRadar site looks fine on Opera 11 Beta b1128.

Solved. I had the option to view all in compatibility mode. The link didn't like it!
