    If you have Vista or 7, IE9 is a worthy download. It's fast, its beautiful, and its (mostly) standards compliant! Plus you still have Compatibility Mode for those pesky sites that just don't work on IE8 or 9.
    (Note: From what the IE9 twitter says, it may not be available in your area yet)

    Interesting. What browswer are you currently using? The video is an HTML5 document, so if your browser is behind the times it might not work.
    or you can try this:http://www.beautyoftheweb.com/#/download

    ... and virus writers rejoice.
     
  8. After looking at IE9 last week I uninstalled it due to the favorites being moved to the right side of the interface with no option to move it back to the left side. Being a left handed mouser the right side just does not work for me. Has anyone found a way to move it to the left side?

    I actually really liked IE9 on my netbook. I regularly use a OS X computer so I won't be using much IE9 though it is a clean look and very fast.

    If you select the favorites button, there's that little left arrow which will pin it to the left side of the screen, but leaves it open all the time. I don't think there's any way to have it just open on the left without leaving it "pinned".

    Unfortunately, IE 9 is not compatible with XP. Firefox 4 is and is due out on 3/22/11
     
  14. Thanks FrankieC that is all I have found as well. That sure is stupid of Microsoft.

    I like the speed but I also don't like the inability to permanently pin my favorites on the left side of the screen.

    Does it sync favorites like Firefox and Chrome?

    I am waiting for new Firefox release next week. I skipped the Beta stage.

    I quite like that Microsoft apologised for IE6 at the recent Drupalcon developer conference:

    Me, too. I used on Firefox and this is much safer and fastest. AOL won't be working for me at all. I tries to open the PDF files and does not go through at all. When I am surfing onto internet and I have to read the PDF files on AOL.
