That's 60x faster than Chrome 6, not IE9. I'm sure IE9 is more than 60x faster than IE8.

Hi there
Browser wars --YAWN YAWN YAWN ---we'll find soon that the browser knows what website you want to visit even BEFORE you type the address in.

Who really CARES if it's 60 or 90 X faster than YYYY. In any case a lot of the speed is dependent on such things like the capability of the UPLOAD server of the site you want to visit --totally OUTSIDE the browsers control.

It's like in the last dying days of CD ROMS PC specs had 50 or even 75 X drives -- didn't matter that NOBODY used these and if they did a slightly warped CD could be ejected at a speed that would slice someone's neck off.

Now that's a nice idea for a Crime novel -- "Murder by PC" .

Or a SC FI novel -- "My Server is Stalking ME".

C'mon Peeps
get real with this stuff.

Browsers are Browsers --just that. Use whatever you are happiest with.
There really in the last analysis isn't a huge lot of difference with ANY of them when reduced to their basics.

Cheers

My mom has a good computer, and she still uses the local paper for her browser. Only got her off AOL after a lot of kicking, screaming and crying.

Hi there
at least a local paper CAN't infect your computer.

True, in theory, but you don't know my mom and computers. Probably uses it as a coffee table while reading the paper. Sets the paper on the desktop...puts the coffee cup on the paper...some print ink seeps into the motherboard....

- but it's a bit more than just another spanner in a toolbox..

IE9 is actually trying to improve your online experience..
personally, I reckon it raises the standard..

it's now up to web-designers to make best use of the advances IE9 brings..

That is what they are promising. A new experience. Not yet but it's early.
