Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 beta: The beauty of the web

Ok guys I am having alot of trouble with IE9. First off my search suggestions in the address bar does not work at all. I can search but there is no drop down box. Secondly it seems I have trouble viewing pictures, videos and ads. Some forums that I frequently visit do not load well and get choppy and grey boxes appear. I downloaded the adobe flash "square" thing for 64 bit and am still having these problems. Does anyone know what I should do? Thanks

I'm not blown away by it either. It looks alright with the UI overhaul and stuff, but it's not enough to move me off of Chrome.
I am kind of in your same boat. I really really like Chrome and have not used IE in years. Was a strong FF user before Chrome came out. Think the last time I use IE was with IE7.

Anyways I will keep giving it a shot and I would consider switching if i really fall in love with it.

I'm not sure what happened but I'm using the IE9 now off the tool bar icon. I'm not sure if it is 64 or 32bit.

Click the Gear on the upper right.

Then 'About Internet Explorer' , if it says '64 Bit Edition' after 'Version' that's the 64bit, if it doesn't then it's the 32bit version.

Both 32 bit and 64 bit versions are on your computer, just like IE8.

You can open the 64bit version from the start menu.

Quick question: How do you get to the Add-on Performance Advisor? The first time it showed up on the notification bar, I closed it, but now I want to access it again. How do I do this? I can't find an option to reach it.

I installed the 64-bit version on a Windows 7 X64 edition. After using it for only 5 minutes it completely locked my PC and I had to use the reset button. I think I'll wait until the final version

After surfing some news sites with IE9, I admit that I like it. The tiny bar at the bottom of the browser is a nice touch -- really makes me feel like I'm seeing more.

I dunno about that one. When I saw it an option at the bottom was present mentioning it wouldn't show itself unless an add-on presented a delay in excess of 0.2 seconds.

I guess you could enable, or install, a slow add-on and it'll come back.

One thing I've noticed... everyone seems to be pleased that IE is using less vertical screen space (including me), but there still is further room to save.

I'm talking about the blank bar above the address/search bar and tabs. All it has is the minimise, maximise, and close buttons. Surely something could be done about that? Maybe move the address bar into that top row to give the tabs their own row again?

I guess it could be difficult because of the way Windows windows* work...

*- it does make sense!

Perhaps it can be done to look something like the quick access in Office applications, with the home/bookmarks/tools icons on the very top of the window.
