Windows 7: IE9 confirmed for March 2010

Linux (Debian, Android)

I want to see Chromium tap into GPU acceleration of text/images with OpenGL.

As far as security IE8 has Protected Mode, SmartScreen filter, Cross-side scripting filter, and I think sand-boxed processes per tab.

I'm not sure what security features Chromium has but it would be nice to compare side-by-side with IE8.

Windows 7 RTM x86

Firefox has no Protected Mode/Sandbox feature, which makes it significantly less secure than IE8 and Chrome.

In all fairness, IE only has security problems because the vast majority of malicious hackers focus their efforts on compromising IE. If that same effort were applied to Chrome or Firefox...

I don't have IE 8 installed so I doubt that I will install 9.:)

I will not give IE a second chance, not with its mediocre track record. I always wonder why so many people still use IE. Its features are mostly copied and then poorly implemented, years after the competition.

I think IE is MS worst product: no vision, no style.

Probably most people still think IE=internet

I will be interested in seeing how friendly it is working with speech.

Hope MS doesn't loaf a 5 pounder.
