There's an example of how differing opinions can be. I was thrilled to death that the stupid click sound was gone. That got real annoying, real quick, especially on pages that auto-refresh. I know when I'm clicking a link...don't need a sound to tell me.

You apparently miss the feature for some reason, but the user has an option to set it either way.

For me, it's more of a "I've been using it forever" sort of thing. Just sort of learned to love it .

(No, I never used the RC)
The rendering engine for IE is used to display content for Explorer and the help system as possibly several other internal systems. Did you notice that the IE install completely shut down your desktop during install?

So yes, a restart is required to completely replace the old html renderer with the new one since parts of it are base OS components.
Mine didn't. IE9 just installed for me while I was messing around on the desktop, then it just asked me to restart my PC

Which I was quite annoyed about because I was wanting to startup a virtual machine I had just created

I saw an article yesterday but don't remember the link where MS stated that IE9-64bit uses a different engine and is slower. The author indicated that a 64bit browser was not a MS priority and they put their effort into the 32bit version.

I'm not sure everybody realizes this but the 32 bit version of IE is the default, even on the 64 bit version of windows 7. Just because your using a 64 bit OS doesn't mean your using the 64 bit version of IE. Installing the 64 bit version of IE 9 also installs the 32 bit version. You have to go to the start menu, all programs and look for the "Internet Explorer (64 bit)" Icon to launch it. I use 64 bit from time to time, but every thing that launches IE in windows 7 launches IE 32 bit so I end up in that version 95+% of the time. 32 bit seems plenty fast to me, haven't used the 64 bit version (of this release) enough yet to pass judgment, only installed it this morning.

IE, at least parts of it are depended upon by some Window's features / programs. So it would make sense that it needed to reboot to complete the install. Other browsers like Opera are standalone and don't hook into the system etc.

It was no biggie - I was just curious at the time why some were having to completely restart the system while others like myself, did not.

Curiosity satisfied now
