Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 Comes with Slimmer Frame

19 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1 (Build 6.1.7601)
Internet Explorer 9 Comes with Slimmer Frame

Internet Explorer 9 has been released and all the excitement of the day has finally toned down a notch or two. The interface of the new Internet Explorer has been stripped as much as possible of buttons and toolbars in order to offer an environment that puts the focus on the webpage and makes of the web browser exactly what it should be in the first place: a tool that helps you navigate the web.

One particularity when installing the beta of IE 9 is that the application is streamlined as an update to your computer. As is the case with most Windows updates, a restart is required after the installation completes, so that all the pieces fall in the right place and you can enjoy the new web browsing experience.

Out of the top features of the application, which include the “clean, site-centric” interface and support for modern web standards (HTML5, SVG 1.1, CSS3, DOM L2, DOM L3, ES5), browsing speed is what most users expect. Equipped with hardware acceleration, IE9 makes use of the power locked in the GPU. This translates into smoother HD video, clearer graphics and improved website responsiveness.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Good read thanks a lot

For an "unknown reason" (=was drunk) last night I installed the latest stable Firefox and compared it to IE9.

lmao IE9 won! Firefox kept bugging my bookmark structure, kept eating RAM while running Java apps, and as usual, kept stuttering and glitching Flash apps that require "high usage" (

IE9 had none of that. On the other hand, IE9 had 4 out of 32 websites (that I regularly use) forcing me to use Compatibility mode. Out of 32, additional 4 would not work at all, instead freezing my tab and displaying the "stopped working" window instead.

Benchmarks were useless to me, as I learned exactly which one is better for my personal use.
Now using IE9 for games and other high Flash/Java usage, Google Chrome 7 for everything else :)
