I've spent a lot more time with both Opera and Chrome than IE. To me, using IE is like using notepad. It works, but it's just blah.....
Do not knock it 'till you try it.

Does it truly matter who has it first? Its who makes the most out of the feature that matters. So far, Firefox has been going downhill in my eyes. Heck, I just installed Firefox Beta 5, Minefield (FF4) Pre-Beta 6 (and the 64-bit version) and all three are out performed by IE8! That shocks the heck out of me.
I'll be looking to make a solid comparison between IE 8 and the beta having set up a second identical 64bit solution here on a second drive for beta testing IE 9 as well as other things.

As far as comparisons between FF and other browsers stacked up against IE 9 here what one blog last November showed in a chart at the time. Internet Explorer 9 to sport GPU acceleration and HTML5 support

I'm still waiting for some final details likely seen once the beta is out. Up until this point everything from MS has been a little tight lipped and anything else has been blogs.

ADDING One More Thing:

I think you will be taking an even further look at IE 9 then you thought once you read this one! No 64-bit (x64) Firefox 4.0, 32-bit (x86) Only – List of Supported Platforms

While making the rounds at the various news sites I thought that catch some FF user notice!
