Well here's my experience so far:

Importing doesn't work properly, I've had to export html then import, otherwise it only imports the standard FF links, nothing else. So far I'm not the only one to experience this, plus another bug; The "All Cpu Meter v3.2" Gadget will not work, the IE9 update must have made some other changes to the system. No big deal, my G15 will hold me over until one or the other gets patched.

Otherwise I really like it, although, it does still take a few moments to load the UI at launch, just like IE8 did, for me. Although the FF beta's have done the same thing, but only when first launched. Once in memory they both launch perfectly. Firefox still tends to stutter occassionally when accellerating lots of content.

I haven't done much benchmarking other than what Microsoft has set up, they both get good performance numbers, but IE9 always "feels" better, very fluid like, never a stutter. It's obvious there's more being accelerated in IE9, which they've been saying would make IE9 better.. I'm not sure about that, but they're both beta's, and I like them both a lot.

I'm not certain which one I'll be using when they're both final, but so far IE9 most certainly has the edge. It just doesn't bog down, no matter how much I throw at it, and that's most important for me, responsiveness and nice acceleration.
Just having web pages not bog down and get choppy due to lots of content is a very big deal to me, by far the biggest impact on how I browse the web; whichever browser does best with regards to that I'll stick with. I hope to be able to use IE9 x64 by default when it's final, otherwise would be extremely frustrating.

Edit: In Soviet Russia, web browser accellerates you!

I agree it definitely feels better, as you said more fluid. I have just uninstalled Firefox!

I will confirm this, "All CPU Meter" isn't compatible. Also, the browser starts faster and the speed of it is greater than Firefox 3.6.9. So far it's beautiful.

Excellent "In Soviet Russia" quote!

Opera and IE9 Beta : Same page opened at the same time; look almost same; Opera is more faster as expected ;But IE9 has significantly improved its speed than previous versions.

P.S: The Back forward buttons looks a bit odd, or its only me?
