There wont be released in march, there will be preview on MIX and i guess we might get some beta (technology preview) at this point. Everything more are illusions.... IE9 is far from finished.
Ah okay. I thought it would've been a bad move to release a final product without a public beta/RC.

to be fair... in some respects IE8 isnt finished, not wanting to be a browser basher, but 2 major security flaws in a month? fair enough, if Firefox, Opera et al had IE's market share then im sure theyd get hit badly, but it cant help its reputation

I actually thought so too! As far as tabbed browsing as some were mentioning it was IE 7 not 8 that first saw tabbed browing in IE.

The one thing noticed lately with IE 8 to mention here is no longer seeing the ad banners typical of free email accounts ever since one of MS updates was released. Seems to act like a new filter of some type. I'll be waiting to see how IE 9 looks there for things like that as well as how it handles embedded animations and videos on different sites.

For alternate browsers I keep first Opera 9.62 then 9.63 onto 10.10 and 10.10 with Unite that was removed fast. Since I don't use tabbed browsing to start with that leaves FF out while Opera comes in handy with the open in new window option seen. But that's only used if IE for some reason isn't running normally for some reason on some more rare occasions.

I appreciate the different view. I'm certainly not complaining about IE8 - the SmartScreen filter really does make a security difference, and IE8 is a huge improvement over earlier versions - but it's simply too slow/not stable enough for me. FireFox just strikes a nice balance.

And of course, it usually comes down to personal preference, in which case I simply like FireFox more.

nah i understand when people argue features and personal prefernace (im first one to admit it lacks some features and some things could be faster), what i just blows me away is when uneducated people see few headlines about IE bugs and they start to argue security... Its like swine flue in computer world, lots of smoke and no fire....

Pff Internet Explorer. What a shame, so slow. so large and is to big on the ram.

I'll still stick to my Chrome and occasional firefox.

Sometimes I wonder if we are all talking about the same browser. I have found that IE8 is as fast or faster than other browsers, integrates beautifully with Win 7 and renders pages correctly. Where security is concerned, the large number of patches done to IE8 is a good thing. It shows that MS is trying to stay ahead of the curve.

I am sure that for many people, other browsers present some distinct advantages, which is a good thing, as we all have our preferences. However, perhaps it is just my ignorance showing, but I have a hard time believing that anyone knows more about integrating a browser with their OS than Microsoft. Anyway, I am content with IE8 at this time and I am looking forward to IE9.

Anyone tried Maxthon lately?

Has anyone found out when the actual release date for the beta version will be? Presently if you run a seatch for IE 9 downloads you'll run into some questionable places listed in the search results!

I used to use Maxthon on my XP machine and liked it but since getting Windows 7 and IE8 I'm quite happy.

I did try it again about a month ago but whether it's a tweak I need to do or something else I found I couldn't use it for my online grocery shopping. I was alright until pressing the checkout button and it would come up with a page telling me I didn't need to go the checkout as my basket was empty going back to my shopping list it was all wiped out and I'd need to start again.

I just couldn't get my shopping to checkout so I gave up and went back to IE8 which worked perfectly, I'll stick with IE8 as I know that works for whatever site I want to go to and will await the arrival of the new version

I guess Maxthon is now Maxthoff for you now!

Most everything these days is orientated towards IE to start with especially any commerce online. I'm just hoping Adobe gets it together with a 64bit Flash Player so I try out the 64bit version of IE 9 once out! That's the drawback with using the present IE 8 64bit.
