Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 Available now!

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I'm posting from it right now. It's working extremely well, has no issues with any plug-ins I had installed previously, and hasn't had any trouble interacting with my SharePoint sites, either.

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit SP1

Not without a registry hack probably. I don't think any release of IE for Window's 7 will ever allow this to happen.

(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.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

So far IE9 RTM is working well in the limited testing I've been able to give it.

One thing they did not "fix" from the RC that will bother me forever is the popup at the bottom of the page. I get one with "This site has been modified to prevent cross site scripting" on like half the pages I visit and that notice is WAY too large and covers a good portion of the bottom of the page. :P

If they really wanted to CONSTANTLY be giving me "status" then they should have just implemented a status bar at the bottom that took up much less space, and the ability to hide it I don't care about it's cross site modification notices.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

The download went well for me over the RC version. However, now at idle, my machine is using a little more RAM then with the RC. I haven't been able to pinpoint the reason, but I see about 50mg's more then before and 4% higher readings in task manager.

I downloaded it so my machine is current, but I won't use it, as IE9 isn't even close to Chrome. It's not really a knock on IE9, but rather a compliment on just how good Chrome is.

Win 7 Professional and Windows 8 Professional

A noticeable increase in speed on my Mini with an Atom and 2GB. A thumbs up in that category. The back button? A definite thumbs down. It may be a minor detail as far as function but it looks like crap from a visual standpoint. I can't believe this wasn't fixed for the final version.

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to merge the min-max-close buttons with the address/tab bar, so that the UI is slimmer? I see no reason for those 3 buttons to for the UI to be so fat.
