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

I don't think I'm too crazy about the menu layouts, and I'm also a big fan of Firefox's ability to set up the menus the way you like. Maybe somebody will make an add on for that. Heh, maybe I will myself.

I do have to say that I'm really impressed with the fluidity of the page rendering and the overall loading speed of pages. The scrolling is impressive too. Scrolling in FF is a little bit jerky. IE9 behaves a bit more like I would expect a browser to run on a relatively high end machine like mine, so we'll see.

I'm a die hard FF user, but I'm going to give this a go for a week and see if I really like it.

Yea I have to say I do like the smoothness of the scrolling in IE9, whereas it is a bit jerky in Chrome as well.

I noticed that scrolling has vastly improved on IE9 compared to IE8, especially when going to this site. However, selecting text is still a hassle in there.

Tried it for 45 mins and I'm back in Opera. Don't think I could ever use it with the Address Bar in the same line with the open tabs - complete nonsense - and what's all that empty space above the address bar? Maybe this is why they suggest that you pin websites to the taskbar! yeah, right - I've already filled the taskbar with programs.
Their other ideas are to pin to the start menu or desktop - really useful!

Apart from that - I tried the 'square' Adobe and the videos are like old Charlie Chaplin films - with frames missing and really jerky. But fine in Opera and Firefox.

The I.E.9 browser is not compatible with the Dell users forum unless it uses the compatibility mode.
You can get the Favorites bar if you right click next to the tabs and check the "Favorites bar" option.
And this will give you the menu bar back,

Ok so after using IE9 for 2 days I like the fact you can pin websites to the taskbar. However I don't like that they open all in a new window. You should have an option to open them in different tabs so the pined sites would just be like a quick launch bookmarks.

The one feature that is still awkward is the fact that the Favorites Icon is now in the upper right had position of the browser rather than on the Favorites Bar, for me.

I thought it was located right next to the Add Favorites Icon in IE8.

I'm sure someone else doesn't like the position either and will come out with an addon to move it.

For now, it is just a small nite to me. The performance outweighs this problem for now.

LOL! It is fun to do that! I still prefer FF but I am giving IE9 an opportunity.
