  -IE9: Good enough to beat Firefox and Chrome? Renew Deal  Sep-23-10 10:35 AM   #0 
  - Not if you have XP  merh   Sep-23-10 10:37 AM   #1 
  - Correct  Renew Deal   Sep-23-10 10:39 AM   #3 
  - XP is still the best Microsoft OS though...  glen123098   Sep-23-10 02:15 PM   #25 
  - I hated giving up XP too, but a year later I'm happy with Win7.  tridim   Sep-23-10 10:46 AM   #7 
     - Agreed. And IE 9's Javascript rendering is leaps and bounds better than IE 8 (and Firefox)  Roland99   Sep-23-10 11:34 AM   #13 
  - IMO IE8 is already better than FF.  tridim   Sep-23-10 10:39 AM   #2 
  - I was disappointed in IE8 because it wasn't much of an upgrade.  Renew Deal   Sep-23-10 10:40 AM   #4 
     - Downloading it now.  tridim   Sep-23-10 10:42 AM   #5 
        - I didn't like that I can't relocate the favorites bar.  tridim   Sep-23-10 12:01 PM   #15 
  - Yes....while the other browsers are interesting and have some cool tools  cbdo2007   Sep-23-10 10:44 AM   #6 
  - 'controversy about HTML5' ? Not really. It is accepted and well on its way.  geckosfeet   Sep-23-10 10:48 AM   #8 
  - What does you mean by "accepted"?  Renew Deal   Sep-23-10 10:50 AM   #9 
     - All 'modern' browsers support the htmls api's. There is a standard and the W3C  geckosfeet   Sep-23-10 01:40 PM   #24 
  - If IE9 doesn't address the CSS incompatibilities of IE, then not a chance.  HopeHoops   Sep-23-10 11:00 AM   #10 
  - It does. CSS 3 support, HTML 5 support, hardware acceleration  Roland99   Sep-23-10 11:35 AM   #14 
     - That's a good thing, but the legacy of the older versions will haunt IE for many years.  HopeHoops   Sep-23-10 01:34 PM   #23 
        - We've been testing w/our new internal web app.  Roland99   Sep-23-10 02:15 PM   #26 
           - How about button borders. Damn that pisses me off with the earlier IE versions.  HopeHoops   Sep-23-10 02:22 PM   #31 
              - border-radius, bay-bee!  Roland99   Sep-23-10 02:59 PM   #33 
              - blah...dupe  Roland99   Sep-23-10 03:00 PM   #34

  - Darn  dkofos   Sep-23-10 01:12 PM   #20 
  - MS has a big reputation problem  notesdev   Sep-23-10 11:29 AM   #12 
  - I wanted to recommend this simply for providing information,  Greyhound   Sep-23-10 12:07 PM   #16 
  - Yes, the Internet needs IE9 like it needs a monopolist OS vendor  kenny blankenship   Sep-23-10 12:07 PM   #17 
  - Content to live in a Safari world...  Dappleganger   Sep-23-10 12:08 PM   #18 
  - Firefox has already lost, as far as I'm concerned.  qb   Sep-23-10 12:57 PM   #19

     - IE9 may be a beta...  Greyhound   Sep-23-10 03:39 PM   #36 
  - Why did you uninstall it?  Renew Deal   Sep-23-10 02:59 PM   #32 
     - I didn't like the "favorites" bar not being configurable.  tridim   Sep-23-10 03:13 PM   #35 
  - Not if I have to use wondoze.  dkofos   Sep-23-10 01:18 PM   #22
