Fabulous – I think not! After taking nearly a full minute on first start up. I guess it got annoyed during the process that it discovered that Explorer wasn’t the default browser of choice. IE 9 which promises so much, delivered so little. All it took was one click on the button at the bottom that says ‘Choose add-ons’ for the browser to become non-responsive. Actually I must say that it then felt quite comforting that Microsoft’s new flagship product failed so spectacularly. The decision was then made for me to remain with Google Chrome – simple and fast!
Anyone buying a new PC or downloading this browser should immediately dump it, if only for all the years of misery draped on us with its previous 3 browser version attempts, although admittedly IE9 implements standards a lot better than before but again not as well as Firefox, Opera or Chrome.
Microsoft really has slowed down the progress of web and standards considerably, Goodbye and stick to what you are good at – designing MICE!
