IE9 should use webkit just like chrome

No...the whole point of them using DX is to make it render faster and more smoothly. WebKit doesn't do as good a job as DX.

My question is when did IE ever have performance superiority over any 3rd party browsers?

tabbed browsing really beats the pants off of having several browser windows open imo.

how is there anything superior about the way DX renders in IE8? It doesn't even support the method used to test complex graphics in the benchmark.

If you install Google Chrome Frame on IE8, IE becomes near godly. Just check this out:


The problem is that Google Chrome Frame disables some features on IE8 (like Accelerators) and enables a Spell Checker that can't be edited to add dictionary entries and an Autocomplete that can't be disabled.

I sure hope the bookmarks are as easy to use in IE9 as they are in FF.

Chrome makes it so hard to figure out and use. I can't stand using Chrome because of it. I would consider using IE9 if it is nothing short then 1.35 billion times better than IE8 lol

They are never going to convert me to a regular IE user, unless they make very significant improvement in several areas. Foremost is security. All browsers have some vulnerabilities, but only in IE is there so many, and the rate at which they provide patches so slow. The only reason that IE holds the lions share of the browser market is because it is automatically native to their OS, and too many people do not understand the limitations and risks of using it.

IE8 on Windows 7 in Protected Mode is the safest way to browse the internet. At least much safer than Firefox. The security problems are with IE6 on XP.

I won' say whether FF or IE8 is safer, but to say that IE8 is the safest way to browse the internet is totally wrong. If you want the safest way to browse, Use Opera. I'm not as familiar with FF, but at least they don't keep all of their bugs secret like they do with IE. Generally, you don't know what vulnerabilities that it has, until MS decides to release a patch.
