Windows 7: Top 10 Reasons to Like IE 9

Have it on my desky at the moment and yeh I found the Adobe stuff quite annoying - until I used the 32bit version as I didn't want to go down the Adobe update / download road as it invariably tells you that it isn't available.

Speed wise I don't find it faster than 8 - at the moment but I did like the way it took my favourites settings "over" to it when I installed, and I do like the narrower bars at the top.

I did see some refs to it becoming "independent" of Adobe and Siverlight but as anyone would know by now I'm a bit thick when it comes to much at all especially graphical stuff.

I was also wondering Chakra ref too did this download with the IE9?

Anyway I prefer it over Chrome it was downloading some nasty cookies all the time and speed wise well the IE is pretty fast.

Of course. Like any other Windows app, when you put the mouse pointer next to it, see the double-sided arrow and slide it.

One bug i hate is IE9 puts a spurious "?" at the beginning of Live Mail messages.
Hiyya Raderator I don't quite get - too thick again - what's the address bar enlarge bit cos putting my mouse over any edge of the address bar does not do anything. The one feature however I would like to reduce is the open tabs width.

I do know what you are getting at it just doesn't work on my machine. Has it got something to do with 32bit / 64bit versions. I had to revert 32bit as the Adobe Flash issue is a nightmarish don't go there one for me going on past experiences
